I capture beautiful memories of life's fleeting moments.
Hi! I'm Rhea! I'm a family documentary photographer living in Oakland, California. I specialize in storytelling photography which means I shoot with a photojournalist eye. When I first had children, I had a hard time finding a photographer that would make images of my family in a way that felt authentic. Over the years, I contacted a number of photographers in my area to ask if they would come into my home and simply capture my family just as we were. I didn't want us to have to sit still and say "cheese". I didn't want to worry about whether my children were going to get messy or wrinkle their new fancy new outfits. Instead, what I wanted were photos that illustrated the strong connection between me, my husband and children and the things we naturally do together on a daily basis- the diaper changes, the breast feeding, dance parties, board games, homework, cooking together, or simply chillin' on the couch. These are the kinds of images I want to make for your family. You have a rhythm, a dance, a language of love that belongs to no other family. It is that bond that I seek to capture as your photographer. There is Art in Your Everyday. Let's make art together.
