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!

Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Hi, We're Joyful Memories Photography!

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, 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.  

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.

We treat you like family.

what makes us different

We all have different seasons in our lives.  Sometimes they are big like expecting your first child and sometimes they are small with just gathering the whole family together to freeze time in a picture!  Either way, time never stops and Joyful Memories Photography wants to capture every season for you!

We believe in caputuring memories

I was so lucky to win a maternity shoot with Rachel! She was wonderful to work with. My husband and I are super awkward photo takers, but she made us feel completely comfortable and made it so much fun! I love how our pictures turned out!

You know it was not much of an experience more like a life-changing event where I got to gain two very good friends! I'm normally not very comfortable in my own skin and Rachel and Jacqueline made me feel very comfortable and the photo session was just all-around fun it was very enjoyable. I loved every minute of it! It actually was something that I've wanted to do since I was 17 and I'm very glad that I got this opportunity.
