Hi! I'm so looking forward to working with you!


I'm Rachel, the owner and photographer. As a kid, I loved taking pictures with disposable cameras and getting them printed as soon as I could. I bought my first digital camera at Walmart for $20 when I was 9, and ever since then I'd loved taking pictures of people.

After graduating college at Saginaw Valley State University and working as a reporter and social media manager for several years, I gained a lot of great experience and skills with the camera and with the business side of things. When I started my family in 2018 and had my wedding, maternity and baby pictures done, I absolutely loved it all and realized my true passion was for maternity, newborn, family and special event photography.


I started Rose Memories Photography in 2020 and after starting small in Lansing, I decided to expand to Mid-Michigan and beyond. I hope to continue to grow my photography skills and provide affordable, high-quality images for every occasion. I've also recently been published to several magazines, so expect to see more of my work soon! Check out more on my socials!
