Lisa, Mom of Lila & Jamsey (Age 3)
Thank you Raquel for the photos of my children that I will cherish forever! To me, nothing says childhood like long afternoons exploring on the beach. However, two three-year olds in the summer heat, who haven’t eaten (bad mommy) and are in desperate need of a nap, can potentially throw a wrench into that vision. Luckily, Raquel was more than up to the task! With her playful and unassuming demeanor, she “made friends” with my girls and joined them in their afternoon adventure – stealthily photographing them along way. The photoshoot (aka “playdate”) was fun and stress-free! And the resulting photos were more beautiful than I could have imagined. Raquel skillfully captured the spirit and curiosity of my girls in casual, candid shots that will have a place in my home for many years to come. Thank you, Raquel!
Alicia, Mom of Sophia (Age 1)
Our daughter is about to turn 1 and we wanted to capture this milestone as well as take a professional family photo for our holiday card. Raquel was the only one to do it! She photographed our daughter as a newborn and we knew we wanted to hire her for this photo as well. Both sessions have exceeded our expectations in every area, the quality of work, the interaction with our baby and the final results. All of our friends and family love the photos. Raquel took the photos quickly and creatively, keeping our little gal interested. We felt relaxed and enjoyed the experience, which is so important when you're taking family photos and is real testament to Raquel considering we have a very busy one year old! We can't wait to see the pictures she takes of Sophia's first birthday party. Thanks so much for your beautiful work!
Little Miss Party Planner, Seri + Michelle
We at LMP have nothing but fantastic things to say about Raquel Bianca. She has been taking photograph's for our website, blog, clients and even our families for some time now. She is talented, professional and just darling to work with. Raquel takes great pride in her work which we appreciate as she always makes our pictures look perfect highlighting and reflecting all of the hard work that we do as party planners. Raquel's photography, design and creative eye is always consistent keeping us coming back for more.
Kay, Mom of Summer (Age 10 Months)
As a first time mother, I had impossibly high expectations for my baby daughter's first photo shoot, I wanted it to go perfectly; I wanted beautiful photos that not only captured what we love about our daughter, but also the love and happiness we feel now that we’re a family; I wanted the photos themselves to be so well-lit, composed and executed that I could frame them like works of art. I don’t know how you did it, but you exceeded my expectations.
I tend to be camera shy, but your warm, playful personality put all of us at ease and made for such natural looking photos. I know from experience that taking photos of a baby (read: ever-moving target) is not easy, but you photograph so effortlessly. No fidgeting with the camera or forcing us to hold long, awkward poses, but such creative, gorgeous shots. You really know what you’re doing! I’m so grateful because my daughter’s first year was gone in a flash, but that day, when she was just 10-months old, you perfectly captured our sweet baby daughter on film, and when we look at the photos you took of her, which we do all the time, we relive how precious that year was. Needless to say, we love the photos you took and look forward to having you photograph her as she grows up. Thanks again, Raquel.
Amy, Mom of Anna (13), Sam (15), and Juliette (8)
Thank you Raquel for understanding my visions and delivering perfection! From your gorgeous photography, to your creative graphic design talents, to your professional demeanor it has truly been a great pleasure to work with you. From the beginning of planning my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, you were so skilled at listening to my ideas and had the unique ability to make them come to life. The invitations that you designed for my daughter were fabulous and each so precise in their tones to match their respective events. The event photography and gorgeous album that you made are gifts that I will forever cherish. You truly captured the joy of the day and the photographs are so very beautiful. The family portraits you took in our home are simply fabulous! The beautiful images are a true reflection of your ease and ability to work with a family and connect with children.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your efforts. You are truly so talented and I can’t wait for my next event, (I may just have to create one), so we can have the opportunity to work together again. It has been an absolute pleasure!!!
Kristan, Mom of Savanna (Newborn)
I have had the pleasure to work with Raquel for a long time now. Previously it was for my business, but this time I had the delight of her taking my daughter's newborn photos. As usual Raquel did not fail to surprise me with the most amazing photos and capture everything in the most incredible way. She was so gentle, loving and knew what she was doing as she arranged Savanna for the photographs. Raquel was in no rush either and did not mind when we had to take breaks to change her diaper or put her back to sleep or calm her. It can be very stressful to feel that you have to have a perfectly behaved sleeping baby, but Raquel was so relaxed and kind that she put us all at ease. Once again, it was truly a pleasure to work with Raquel, and anyone who sees our pictures asks who did those incredible photos :)
