hello

WELCOME
to the Rachie P blog! I am a St. Petersburg, Florida portrait and wedding based photographer who grew up here in the sunshine state with a natural love of light and greenery. Grab a cup of coffee (or glass of apple juice, in my case) and enjoy viewing my latest work, reading my blog and getting a sneak peek into my life through my social media.

 Being a photographer, it is very difficult to not want new family pictures every ten minutes or so. Unless you have a photographer friend you can barter with, you try to deal with the "suffering". But when the want becomes stronger and stronger, what do you do? You ta...

There is no denying the benefits of living in Florida. But here I show you one very clear reason. Newborns, beach and no clothing with a little less humidity, no complaining here! These darling little girls were such an incredible joy to photograph especially with thei...

We've all been there, trying to get photographs out of our own children.  Would you like to know how the professionals do it?  Well here it is, the secret in my personal experiences has been light and laughter. Light is a given but I need to reiterate it’s importance....

This beautiful princess you ask? Sofia Rose, and she just turned one! Her Bubble Guppies themed birthday party was filled with bright hues, balloon octopus and fish along lots of love, good food and laughter. Always such a joy to photograph her, although exhausted her...
