Hello! I’m Reaj, pronounced “Ray-a” like a ray-of-sunshine and I'm so glad we found each other! I am a wife, momma of two, professional baby snuggler, and a photographer. I get my kicks out of creating beautiful, timeless images of newborns and families while providing phenomenal service to busy mommas like you.
As a mother of a 15-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter who are nothing alike but equally fantastic, I'm living the dream shuttling them to school, soccer, and dance. So I get it. I know what it is like to juggle a million tasks, keep your tiny humans alive and well, and try to squeeze in time for yourself. Often, I'm the last one to be dressed because I'm so busy dressing and caring for everyone else. But then sometimes find myself rushing and skipping on the much-needed glam. If this is you, you are my people and I am yours.
On the day of your portrait session with me, I invite you to do the bare minimum - especially if you have just had a baby. From one mom to another, I affectionately give you permission to arrive without makeup on, in yoga pants and a top knot and let us pamper you. To learn more about how we care for you, please scroll down and read about my fabulous team.
Like many families in the Phoenix area, I am a transplant from Southern California. Born in SoCal, I was then raised in Tempe where I became an ASU Sun Devil and graduated with a degree in Sociology. After working in the health care administrative industry for nearly 15 years and having two small children, I decided to change gears.
My passion for photographing newborns and small children grew. I invested in countless hours of education, workshops, and retreats to consume as much information as possible. And then I did it. I jumped off into the deep-end, constructed a studio space and office within our home, and nearly 7 years later, here I am and here you are reading my story.
I hope you will follow along with me on Instagram @reajrobertsphotography to see more day-to-day goodness in the studio and behind the scenes. For features of my client's favorite images and to get an idea of what you will receive when you commission me as your photographer, please visit the blog.
