all you have left

photographs will become the most important when they are




My name is Rachel and I love being silly with my friends, going on trips with my husband, looking at the stars, decorating and capturing life's moments!  Each client that I meet, I want to become friends with and leave them with memories that they can treasure forever! My goal is to learn every clients life story and capture each stage of life from getting engaged to baby's 1 year cake smash!

Hi, We're Joyful Memories Photography!

North Texas photographer that specializes in boudoir, maternity, family & seniors

Meet Rachel

Hey there!  My name is Rachel & I was born & raised in the great state of Texas!  My love for photography picked up back in 2009 when I became in awe of the art of photography!  I wanted to somehow duplicate what they did, thinking it was  super easy!  Boy, was I wrong!!  It never stopped me though, because that's when I started my business. I really felt like God walked me through all the steps to starting & for 9 years, it was more as a hobby than anything! 

I got married in December 2017 & while reading a Proverbs 31 book for guidance on how to be a better wife and woman, God started to burn this desire to pick up my camera  & really have this be my future!  You know when God places that desire, its hard to just stop thinking about, you feel that push, & that's what He did! Also my husband is 100% in support of my dreams and I couldn't be more blessed! 

I take classes online to better my skill & learn more about everything that pertains to photography from lighting, poses, camera, business, etc.

I give my credit to my business to the good Lord above and I give my credit to my husband for the love behind it.

My faith, decorating, make-up, planning a new event (hanging out with friends), Christmas, travelling and my
secret shame - lots & lots of watermelon. 

what I'm known for:

My passion grew back in 2009, when I truly felt like God placed the desire to start my own business in photography. The first 9 years it was more like a hobby, but after getting married and asking God what it is He created me for, the desire for photography grew in my heart. 
This past year I have really loved photographing Boudoir style photos. I think all women are beautiful and sexy in their own way and I hope their stunning pictures can help them see that!

I'm a Southern girl with a big city heart.
I believe in Jesus & give all my credit to Him!


I truly value my relationship with my clients! You are the center of my business and I want you to feel important! Our relationship begins the minute you inquire about a session and like a great investment, will last for years to come! I am always here to answer your questions or talk through your concerns. Scroll over to learn more about these sessions.

what makes us different

 What to expect for your Boudoir session

Maybe you’re gifting your boudoir session to your honey, or maybe you’re ready for some self-love. Either way, boudoir sessions can feel a bit scary or overwhelming if you’re not sure what to expect. But, there’s nothing to be afraid of! 

After your session is booked, we set up a time to have an online consultation with you to go over your big day!  We go over the small and large details, clothes, props, etc and I also get to know you more.  You are more than welcome to ask me any questions to get to know me as well!  All the ladies after our consultation feels more relaxed and excited for their shoot day!

I want you to come in being comfortable and confident!  I want you to be YOU!  Don't come in and try to be someone your not or think you should look like.  Every lady that I photograph has a different story, different body and all of them rock it!  We will play music of your choice at your session and be girls!!  After a few snaps on my camera with you in front of it, you and I both start to warm up and we both will get each others flow and start to have FUN!

You are more than welcome to pick an outside location or an inside location.  We currently don't have our own studio, but have access to local studios and suites.  We can do in the comfort of your home or a friends home as well!

I ask all of my ladies to give me 2 weeks to give you your session back.  You will get to pick the package of your choice with any add-ons that you like.  We currently are offering digital images and also luxury photo albums.

We are specializing in Boudoir as we have truly enjoyed helping women feel comfortable in their skin and to feel sexy like we all should! 
Check us out on Facebook and join our Boudoir group that is a ladies only group where we talk everything from Boudoir, nerves, insecurities, goals and root each other on!
