“Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”


I'm Rachelle Verley

a Central Valley Photographer.

I am 36 years old and a Mother to five absolutely amazing children.

I started my photography journey after I had my first child in 2006. I had got a seasonal position at a photo studio and fell in love with Photography. I didn't decide to start my business until 2012 after I had my second child and kind of dabbled in it here and there.

2018 hit and I took my business full force after the birth of my last child. I went from dreaming of having a studio and booking one or two newborn sessions a month to now booking majority of my monthly calendar with newborn sessions.

I cannot thank my clients enough for all of the love and support I receive from absolutely all of them. I have come so far and I am so thankful and blessed to be doing what I love to take care of my family.

I am a very laid back, go with the flow photographer and I am always being complimented with the comfort I meet my clients with. "I feel like you are an old friend and you made my experience so easy going and made me feel incredibly beautiful" is one of my favorite compliments. This is probably the most common feedback I receive. I aim to make your session as calm and stress free as possible and I take a lot of pride in it.

Maternity and Newborn Photography are my absolute favorite sessions to shoot. I am very passionate about all of my work but there is nothing more perfect than the gift of new life.

Studio sessions are done at my studio location in downtown

Merced, California.

I hope you enjoy my work and I hope to work with you and your family soon!
