Abraham Evan

This little guy was the first one back to my studio!  I was so glad I was able to do his newborn session, even though he was a month old when I met him.  He stayed awake the whole time, but he was very sweet.  He was a strong little guy that easily got out of every wrap I put him in, but that didn't stop me from trying to keep him wrapped up.  😊

ShunTaya's Senior Session

ShunTaya wanted to include her girls in her session which was fine with me!  However, we had quite a bit of trouble finding a time that worked and safe place to do her mini session, but we finally figured it out, and I'm glad it worked out!  We ended up at Foster Park, and it was pretty busy with many other photographers, but we were able to work around them and have a fun time.  She has a sweet family, and I wish her all the best!  😊

Stuart's Senior Session

After chatting about what Stuart wanted for his mini session, we agreed the west side of Headwaters Park would be a good fit.  It was a beautiful, quiet morning with no one else in sight.  I gotta say, I think this is becoming one of my favorite places for sessions!  😄  Stuart was so chill as we wandered around, often backtracking to spots we had already been to as I saw them from a new perspective which triggered a new idea for a shot I wanted to get.  😊

Kierra's Senior Session

Kierra suggested we do her mini senior session at Friemann Square, and although I have driven by it SO much, I hadn't spent much time walking through it.  I think it was the perfect spot, and we had a lot of fun!  It was super hot, so Kierra took the opportunity to dip her feet in the water.  😄  At one point, some people saw us and after asking a couple questions, they congratulated Kierra on her graduation and even cheered for her.  😊

Sam's Senior Session

I really enjoyed meeting Sam and his family!  I have to admit, this was actually my first time at Promenade Park.  😁  I thought it was really nice, but there were SO many people there.  We had a bit of trouble avoiding the crowd at first, but we managed to work around the people passing by, and then we found some better spots that weren't crowded.  😊

Lilly's Senior Session

I was SO excited for this session when I woke up to fog!  I have to say, I was not disappointed!  It was such a beautiful morning with the most perfect weather I could have possibly hoped for.  I really enjoyed working with Lilly.  I had initially promised 3-5 pictures from this mini session, but I had SO much trouble narrowing it down and delivered about 3 times as many pictures.  😁

Prints Available to Purchase

Photographing animals is a passion of mine!  One of the projects I have been working on is going through the photographs I've taken that aren't for clients, but are for my own enjoyment.  I've picked out my favorite photographs, sorted them into galleries, and made them available for purchase.  These galleries represent many years of work, much of which has been published on one of my blogs.  You can find all the galleries under Hobby Work on my website by going to: https://www.rachelwilhelmphotography.com/hobbywork
You can be creative in what you design!  Get framed prints for you walls as well as magnets, cards, books, ornaments, and more!  Thanks for looking!  😊

Big Cats

This gallery is filled with pictures I have taken of big cats in zoos.  I love cats of all sizes, and the numerous photos I have meant that the cats needed their own gallery.  You can see this gallery by going here.


This gallery is the one that will likely see the most growth until it needs to be sorted again and split into smaller categories.  You can see this gallery by going here.


I haven't always enjoyed photographing birds, but recently I have been focusing on them and felt they needed their own gallery.  You can see this gallery by going here.

Sea Life

I have to admit that I sometimes feel uncomfortable around some of the sea life you'll see in this gallery, but that hasn't stopped me from trying to get the best possible photo of them.  You can see this gallery by going here.


This gallery is definitely the most unique!  Within this gallery you will find the results of what started as more of a hobby for me and then become so much more!  I have over a thousand pictures of my hamster, Tarcil, so it was difficult to narrow it down to my favorite, but you can see them here!

Fine Art

This gallery is a small gallery and is a bit of an assortment of pictures.  It is mostly made up of my favorite photographs I have taken of flowers, but there is also a small collection of instruments and other things.  Check it out by going here.

Thank you all for your support!  💓
