Meet The Photographer

Self Portrait The Lansing Studio

Rachel Barnum

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


I'm Rachel, the owner and photographer. From an early age I developed an intense passion for photography, always having disposable cameras and waiting impatiently to get them developed. After years of honing my skills, I graduated college from Saginaw Valley State University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. I spent a few years working as a reporter and social media manager, and I eventually started my family in 2018 and made the life changing decision to start my own photography business. It has since been one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I am able to make my own schedule and go at my own pace.


Over the years, I have built an arsenal of gear, with two Canon camera bodies and multiple long and portrait lenses to ensure each image is captured perfectly and will look beautiful for years to come. Since beginning this journey, I have achieved publication in multiple magazines, a strong social media presence, and a solid client base which only continues to grow. Through each new challenge, I hope to continue to share my work and experience to provide affordable and high-quality images for every occasion.

Memories to Last a Lifetime

I operate on creativity and caffeine.


I currently shoot in Canon and my favorite Lens is my Canon EF 28-70mm or my 70-200mm.

My favorite camera body is my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, and I always use my MacBook Pro to get the editing done.
