Ready to Book?

Please email me at to schedule your session.

**Please note that it is best to schedule newborn sessions as early in your pregnancy as possible due to limited availability. For unscheduled births, I will make note of your due date. Plan to schedule your session sometime within the first 10 days after the birth, if possible.**

Session Locations

When you contact me to book your session, we can discuss where you'd like to have your photos taken. I have several spots around Frisco, Plano, and McKinney with varying styles depending on what you're looking for. All newborn sessions will take place in your home.

Tips for Sessions

My biggest tip? Relax! If your kids see you relaxed and having fun, they will too. If you're stressed and snapping at everyone, they're probably not going to want to cooperate at all.

Make sure kids (and adults!) are not hungry when you come to your session! Have water available for kids, but avoid bringing snacks for during the session since that can get messy.

Bring wet wipes or burp cloths to wipe runny noses and dirty faces during the session.

What to Wear

Sessions are shot exclusively outdoors (except newborns), so please wear clothing that is comfortable for you and your family.

Play around with patterns, colors, and texture, but it looks best if shirts have minimal or no writing on them. Color, muted color, and/or patterns are preferred to wearing solid black or white.

If more than one person will be in the photo, it is best to coordinate colors but not match exactly. For example, choose a family of colors and have everyone work within that palette.

Newborns may wear a special outfit if you wish, but they really photograph best when they are wearing nothing at all. I will bring a variety of blankets and props with me to your newborn session, but feel free have some of your own available too (a special blanket, hats, bows, etc.).

Check out my Pinterest board for What to Wear ideas.


If someone gets sick, please let me know and we will reschedule so no one is feeling miserable during your session. Please make me aware of any other schedule conflicts that arise as soon as possible - and keep in mind that we may not be able to find another time for your session for several weeks.

Occasionally the weather does not cooperate and we will have to reschedule your session. I will be in contact with you as your session approaches if any inclement weather is expected.


I accept cash, checks (made out to Rachel Cooke), and Paypal for your session fees or any other purchases. Full payment is due at the time of your session.

Image Delivery

Your edited images will be available for you to view and download approximately 3 weeks after your session. You will receive a link and password to your gallery via email.
