Autumn 2009

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

This is the first day of autumn! There are only 94 days until Christmas. (Can you believe it?)  This means that it’s time to start planning family portraits so your cards and prints will be available in plenty of time for the holiday season.

Our autumn portrait promo is here! Mini sessions are our most affordable and efficient option for getting that perfect brag-worthy image to use in holiday greetings, as gifts, or to update the family portrait on your desk at work. Let’s leverage the incredible colors of New England’s autumn while they are in full glory!

The details:

  • Nonrefundable session fee of $125 is for our time and talent.
  • Proof gallery with about 15-20 images from the mini-session.
  • Files, prints, cards, and discs are available for purchase. See sample gallery for prices.
  • These sessions are for everyone!
    • families
    • couples
    • pets (no guarantees!!)
    • headshots
    • Be creative… wear your wedding dress if you want some quick artsy shots in the autumn leaves! Bring your violin if you’re a musician. Bring your kids for a playful leaf fight!

feedback – studio maternity session

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Yesterday I had Roger and Phyllis out to the studio in Lowell for some fine art maternity portraits. Here’s what they had to say about the experience:

Rachel,

Roger & I just wanted to thank you so much again for doing our maternity shoot. We repeatedly said how much we enjoyed our time doing the shoot to one another long after we left your studio. You made us feel beautiful, comfortable, and absolutely fun – I think you really tapped in to the sides of Roger that most people don’t get to see! We are so glad you captured that – especially for our soon to be baby girl. I cannot wait to see the pictures and I especially cannot wait for our baby to see Mommy & Daddy’s soul captured so beautifully through your pictures!

Thank you again!!!!
Phyllis

seeking: Hipster Family as Muse… Lowell MA

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

So, some of you know that in the next few months I am debuting my official child and family portrait business based out of my new studio location in Lowell, Massachusetts. Watch this blog for casting call opportunities for specific timeslots I will want to photograph your child… and for the unveiling of the still-TBD name and separate blog for this business.

In the meantime I am putting out the holler to hipster families specifically located in our new hometown of Lowell, MA. I’m looking for a muse! Here’s the kind of collaboration I am looking for… check out this amazing video/photo montage by one of my photographer crushes, Austin-based Sarah Q.

So, for those of you who know people who know people… send them this way! rachel@mergeweddings.com
