You love your kids like crazy but life feels so hectic, it feels like you'll never get to slow down and enjoy them the way you truly want to.   That's why I'm dedicated to creating a family photography experience like no other.   With easy step by step guidance and a session that is care free and easy going, you can shed your worries and seize the opportunity to create meaningful memories.  My job as your photographer is to help you see the beauty I see in you and around you.⁠

Your family loves being outdoors, snuggling and dancing to music together.  When it comes to capturing memories together, you want to feel beautiful, have a good time and be able to focus on enjoying each other without any stress.


Within 2-3 weeks after your session you'll receive access to your private online gallery so you can download and share your final images.  From there you'll also be able to shop in the online store and purchase prints, canvases, albums and a variety of fine art products to display your beautiful images in your home


I will send you a reminder email within the week before you session with some last minute tips to help the day of your session go as smooth as possible.  Then you'll get to play, laugh, snuggle and enjoy your family time at your beautiful location, while I help guide and direct you to feel natural and at ease in front of my camera.  My goal is to make sure each of your family members has a great time and that their authentic personalities shines through in your finished photos.

Your photo day!


Once everything is official, I'll send you my Client Questionnaire to fill out so I can get all the details about your family members and interests.  Then I'll share my Client Guide with you so you can decide where you want to do your session and so you can start planning your wardrobe.

Rivkah Leah was great for our family photo shoot. She handles the chaos of young kids during photos very well and is very patient. She helps take the stress off of the mom (let’s face it, moms do most of the work putting these things together) by helping coordinate outfits and including items from her client closet.

She also makes a point to help mom remain relaxed during the shoot. Will definitely book her again!

Riv was such an asset to my birth team. She was so helpful during my labor and captured all of the powerful moments.
My favorite photos she captured though, were the newborn and lifestyle photos about 2 weeks after my daughter was born. I treasure all of the precious closeups of my little newborn.

The details of the moments I will never get back in real life, but now have the photos to relish in that fleeting time forever. So grateful to RL and her sweetness. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a newborn photographer!

We had an amazing newborn session with Rivkah! We have three older girls and our newborn so I was expecting for the worst, but Rivkah did such an amazing job keeping the atmosphere very fun and relaxed! When she left I kept telling my husband what a great experience that was! AND our photos were everything! So grateful for Rivkah and these photos!

Rivkah Leah is a super talented photographer. I get very nervous before and during family photo shoots, but her calm demeanor really helped me stay relaxed. From helping our family choose coordinating outfits to holding my 18m old while snapping away to really capturing the personalities of each family member, Rivkah Leah is the full package!

We have a deep desire to be present in these moments as our children grow and develop right in front of our eyes!  I am here to shed light on the amazing mother you are and the beautiful family you are raising, by creating an experience that fosters appreciation, presence and deep connection with the most important people in your life

read more about me

am so excited you're here!  My photography style was born out of my own journey into motherhood, which was anything but smooth. Struggling with finding joy in the every day of parenting, I dug deep and found within myself the ability to celebrate the joy and connection in family life through being present with my clients as they played, snuggled and enjoyed each other in front of my camera. 


Outdoor family and maternity sessions are up to an hour long and will mostly depend on the size of your family.

In-home newborn sessions are around 2 hours long which leaves enough time to take breaks for diaper changes, nursing, and antsy toddlers.

If you choose to add on an intimate floral bath to your newborn session, we'll need an extra half an hour.

1. How long will our session be?

2. how many images will we receive?

Every session includes at least 50 High Res images in both color and black and white.  When your session is over, I go through all of the images and choose the absolute best ones that represent the love and personalities of your family.  

I'll be hard at working editing your photos and they will be delivered via online gallery within three weeks of your session.

3. When will we receive our images?

I take a lot of time and care helping my client's pick outfits that coordinate well and look beautiful in front of the glowing Phoenix desert backdrop.  

Once your session is confirmed, I will provide you with my Client Guide and access to my exclusive Online Styling Service as well as support via text to make sure you find what you need for your whole family!

4. What should we wear?

I don't expect kids to "behave" during your session. I encourage running, playing, laughing, and getting genuine smiles from everyone. I never ask your kids to do anything they don't feel comfortable doing. The secret to natural and genuine family photos is to let kids be kids and have it be a 'no discipline' zone, where you are able to put aside any fear of judgement (I promise my kids act up ALL THE TIME) from me,
Your job is to simply be present with them, which will help them feel at ease and want to cooperate. My clients are always amazed at how well their kids listen to me and play along! Trust me to guide the kids and all will be well!
