Hi friends, my name is


Published newborn, maternity, family, and branding photographer based out of Farmington, Connecticut.

Mother to two little girls
Wife to the most supportive husband
Dogmom to Lilly, our fluffy English Goldendoodle

I photograph women and their families at all stages of her motherhood journey. Whether you are looking to record memories of you and your children or build your business, I'm here to help.

With a patient, engaging, and playful approach,

I'll capture your little ones' true spirit in heartwarming, candid photos you'll cherish forever.

At the peak of the pandemic, I did some soul searching and decided it was time to step away  from being a pharmacist and focus on my family and passion - photography.

As your photographer, I'm going to walk you through every step to make sure you walk away with images that you will love and share with your kids, who will then pass them down to their kids, and so on.  

Trust me to make even the fussiest of kids feel at ease and shine in front of the camera!

"She is extremely detail-oriented, organized, and professional. And did I mention talented? Richelle's eye for all things photography is impressive." 

I got my first camera in middle school.  I can't recall the make but I do remember it being gold.  I can still hear the sound of the click as I would unlatch the cover and insert a fresh roll of film. 

I've rarely left home without my camera since I was 13 years old.

Fast forward to 2015 when my grandmother passed away.   As my cousins sat next to me, we went through albums and boxes of photographs of her, I realized that I wanted to do a better job at documenting my family's memories.  I went to Target and purchased my first DSLR, a Nikon D5200 and I quickly learned that there is more to it than just pressing a button.

Over the years, I've upgraded my camera to a mirrorless Nikon Z6 and invested in lenses, lighting, and gear but it's so much more than that. Education was what really propelled me. I just wanted to soak everything in and make my understanding of light and composition second nature.  

Are you ready to have me plan your photoshoot?

let's work together

I can't wait to hear from you

"Highly recommend Richelle for all your photography needs!"

My son was a bit skeptical at first but you quickly won him over and did a fantastic job. The pictures we took are timeless and I can’t wait to book again!

Richelle was such a great find! She found a perfect location and we loved every single picture.
