Dancing into the weekend!
I love what I do. I believe in the power of a photograph and the importance of having photo memories. My dad was in a serious car accident, nearly, 20 years ago. I came to the realization a few years later that if the worst possible outcome had happened we would have had two family photos to remember him by. Two. I’m grateful each day that my dad is with us. That we can continue to make memories with him. My husband and I try to book a session each year so our babies have these memories. Life is too short. Whether it be a selfie or a photo session, take the damn picture ❤️
Getting wrapped up in nature and each other is what I love most about my adventure portrait sessions. Just letting go, with no forced posing, no 'put your right hand on her left shoulder' nonsense, just amazing connections and surroundings.
Brendan and Felicity's couples session to one of my recently discovered amazing spots was so much bloody fun! These two are a riot and I can't wait to show you more of them!
Heading home...cannot wait for cuddles with my babies 🙌🏼
Speaking of terrible two year olds.. when I showed up this guy was being a grump and then the switch flipped and he turned on all the charm and giggles. Low lows and high highs. Living with two year olds is no joke.
Until 1:00 and it’s 80 degrees 👆🏻 am I right?
Big love to my physio 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
My back is better!
Watch out post office I’m coming at ya with a back log of orders sanded/pack and ready to post 💪🏼

10.18.18 // preppin for a road trip this weekend means today was spent cleaning the apartment from top to bottom bc #adulting
🙈 I had 39 items on my to do list and also a mouse ran around in my apartment today and if either one of those things alone won’t give you nightmares, both of them together will😳😳 so anyways, as my students told me this morning, happy “friday junior,” my friends. ((truthfully if you think about it for too long it doesn’t really make sense, but they said they saw it on snapchat and snapchat knows all sooooo🤷♀️)) #thehouseonmaple
Oh those Dozier boys. I love them!!! ❤️
Can’t believe cold weather is already here ! Maybe we should all hibernate together! #deuxpardeux
3 of 6 ingredients on the table 😍😍😍 what's your fave/key nut ingredient? 🥥🍠🥜
This goooorgeous pair is on the blog right now!!! Link in profile to see more!
Love just got real. I can’t wait to meet the little cherub that was in this belly, next week 😍

Here's a sneak peek from Emily + Mitch's cozy, fall engagement session tonight. These two are filled with laughter, kindness, and joy. I loved getting to know them, laughing with them and feeling like instant friends!
I couldn't be more in love with every image from tonight, from those gorgeous fall colors to the perfect golden hour. Congratulations on your engagement, I cannot wait to celebrate the start of your forever and always next summer!
“So this is what fall feels like” 🍂☀️🧡
From tonight. 🖤 These two are perfect.
Hadley is 1! Happy Birthday baby girl! 🎈🎉
4 years and 1 highly uncooperative child later, here we are 😂 Happy anniversary @jakehelsley
, thanks for putting up with all of our shenanigans 😘
We celebrated with our tradition of dinner and cheesecake, followed by taking Cade to Barnes and Noble to choose some books, instead of buying gifts for each other. I wouldn't want to spend it any other way ❤
Grapes on grapes on grapes...and a sun flare.
You get extra points with me if you dip your toes in the water during our session. I’m sure it was freezing but Magan had her game face on 💁🏻♀️
Sending off this beauties senior session as soon as it finishes uploading. So I am sharing a few after sunset shots while I wait 👌
I hope I don’t have any “feed” police on here because I’m breaking all the rules. There’s something freeing about posting what you want, when you want. Most of this pressure to have the perfect feed and aesthetic comes from other artists/the community and what you “should” be doing... but honestly, who are we doing it for?
“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision: You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement. It is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being ‘in love,’ which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being ‘in love’ has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those who truly love have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” ...
There is no greater love story than that of family ♥️ and no perfect gift for your family than capturing it, pure and raw. I am currently booking Day in the Life sessions for 2019, let’s chat about capturing your families history.
I’m not sure who this is? 🤷🏻♀️ I mean I know I took a picture of my baby... But where did my baby go?!? 😭🙈😍 #Benny #forevermybaby
I’m back, after a nearly two week break from social media! And now all I wanna do is just jump on real quick and immediately take a four week break because it was sooo nice. 😂😂 Can anyone relate? Or am I the only one who stresses WAY TOO much over this app?? But alas. I have way too much goodness (I’m talkin’ images, not so much words 🙃) to share with all of you, so I guess my next extended holiday from IG will have to wait. I may be over Instagram but I’m definitely not over these two cuties in the gorgeous fall mountains.
Newborns are so wonderfully tiny! I think every newborn session I do, now that I have a rapidly growing munchkin, will feel kind of shocking. But seriously, how do they grow so fast?! Head over to my stories to see more of tiny, precious Miss Mya & reminisce (or dream about) those fleeting first few days of baby life.
Checked out the Gathering Place yesterday as part of our Fall Break fun. It was amazing! (I knew it would be.) We can’t wait to go back!
My assistant and I stumbled upon a new location to add to my Mini Session rotation! Check out my different albums on my Facebook Page “Raquel Knowles Photo” for different options! Message me if there is one that would like a session at!
And just like that you are TWO! I don’t ever want you tell not to go up but I still cannot believe it’s already been 2 years of being your mama. You are all things sweet and you love with a depth that takes my breath away so many times. I love you sweet Em! Happy Birthday baby girl!
Today we woke up to two 2 year olds in the house! Where in the world does the time go? They say don’t blink but I guess I did because it felt like just yesterday they were laying you on my chest and our eyes met for the first time. I love you for all that you are and will become! Happy Birthday, little El!
i grew up on this very land. so much imagination dreamt in these fields. to be little again.
Sometimes it's all about getting fancied up and climbing a tree. Because, why not? 🤷🏻♀️
I love the adventurous souls that lie within every kid - it is truly amazing. You can dress them up in the cutest outfits and nicest church shoes, yet they manage to climb any tree that they can get their hands and feet around. Meanwhile, if I had to climb a tree in my fancy wear, there would a lot of chafing...lots of chafing. 🤦🏻♀️
Anyone else? Or is it just me!? Double tap if you agree! 😝
The perfect Fall session complete with a caramel apple for dessert!
Oh and last weekend, I also met the adorable Parker! 🙃
Those sweet mama cuddles ✨
New day // new possibilities 🌿
what I like about black and white photographs is that they're more like reading the book than seeing the movie
We got our family photos back today from the amazing @janecanephotography
Every year we have these done, and since we’ve been married it’s been in the same location. We may not have a particular reason for them but simply for keepsakes and gratefulness of each year of a beautiful fall season and a new year of marriage.
Hicks Family // Lifestyle family // Happy adoption day little Jeremiah!!! So happy to finally be able to show your smiling face to the world! And congrats to the Hicks Family on their newest addition 🎉🎉🎉 love you all! ❤️❤️❤️
Mama & I agree, this is a session favorite! 😍
Happy 6th Birthday to one of the coolest, opinionated, biggest personality, but ohhh so cute kids I know! My Niko, I love you baby boy! #brickyardboysphotography
No matter how many times I say ‘I love you’, by bedtime, it never seems like it was enough. I tuck Jack in every night, praying he has the sweetest dreams, knows that he is safe, and feels the overwhelming amount of love I have in my heart for him. Time goes much to quickly, and I don’t want one second to go by without him knowing how much he is loved.
This is how I got to spend my morning! Love this little family & so happy for them!
