About Rachel Hein Photography
I'm a Yorkshire girl living in the beautiful city of Edinburgh with my husband Andy, our son Francis and two cats Mork and Mindy. Ilike to shoot all sorts of things but my first love is family portraiture.
I love to be outdoors and I'm lucky enough to be based in one of the most photogenic cities on the planet. I'm always out and about with clients making the most of the wonderful scenery that we're blessed with in and around the city. I'm spoilt for choice when it comes to inspiring locations, Edinburgh is surrounded by stunning beaches and beautiful woodland which are perfect for my family sessions.
My passion for photography has grown out of my love of documenting life. When my son came along it became hugely important to me to capture him as he grew. He's seven now and he loves to look through the books I've made of our family life over the years. I started my business in 2010 because I realised how much this meant to me and I wanted to capture these memories for other families. My aim is to take pictures that my clients cannot take themselves. Beautiful, creative images that capture little personalities through natural, timeless photography.
I like to have fun when I work and I keep my photography sessions as relaxed as possible - I know that very few people over the age of 10 enjoy being photographed and I'm aware that being in front of the camera does not come naturally to most people. I work hard to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves and I have many clients who come along to their session expecting it to be an ordeal and leave having really enjoyed it, at least that's what they tell me!
I feel very fortunate to have a job that is so exciting and rewarding. I love that every shoot brings a new challenge and I look forward to creating many more beautiful images over the coming years.If you would like to have a chat about family, wedding or commercial photography, I would love to hear from you !
