Intuitive & emotional
portraits of women, families, & gorgeous imperfect lives.

Hillary Rain Photography

Holy hush & blushing wild.

Let's talk about those moments. The ones you almost can't bear because you feel like you'll break from the beauty.

Or from the weight of all the unseen stories. From the secret truths only you know. From the ravishing hope, the spinning-around-until-you're-dizzy laughter, the breathlessness. The sudden and unexpected healing. The miracle. The shy smile. The tears. The ache that still feels tender and warm inside your chest. The way light falls on wood floors. The ones you love. You.

My favorite portraits are the ones between poses. 

When you come to a session with me, I simply ask for your openness. We are co-creating art through intimate moments that are organic and unscripted, easeful and true. I use natural light, golden hour and other soft, lush elements to gently unveil what I call your “quiet light”—the truth of your soul.

I’d pay for you to take my picture tomorrow. With all the contrasty, mystical, magical post processing that looks like they were developed on the paper of old library books, but without words.
— Michelle Gardella, teacher + photographer

After our session I will continue the creative process by preparing your portraits for final delivery. You will receive a private link to view and download the digital files to your computer for safekeeping.

    Baby by Hillary Rain Photography.jpg

    I photograph the tenderness of being human.

    I am blessed to witness the unconventional beauty of a well-lived-in life. Women, maternity, families, feminine boudoir, sacred everyday moments in your home: together we are co-creating art in moody color and black & white. Let me see YOU.

    Let's co-create emotional portraits of courage and tenderness.

    (It takes both of us.)

    Say yes to a life-altering experience in brave vulnerability and smoldering truth.



    • + What kind of sessions are available?

      • I shoot sacred everyday life sessions, feminine boudoir, maternity, and lifestyle portraits of women & families.
    • + Are prints included?

      • Prints are not included with your session. You will receive a private link to view and download the digital files to your computer for safekeeping. Hillary Rain Photography retains copyright of images and provides a print release so you can have your images printed with a third-party service of your choice. If you would like me to have prints prepared for you, this is a separate service with additional fees. 
    • + Do you travel or should I come to you?

      • Either way! I am happy to travel to you for the cost of traveling fees. If you come to Dallas we will utilize outdoor locations for our experience.
    • + Do you have a studio?

      • I do not have a studio. Depending on the location, light, and type of shoot, sessions are held in your home, outdoors or in other creatively inspiring locations. 
    • + Investment

      • Local sessions (within 10 miles of 75225) begin at $397. Once you inquire I will reach out to you and we will have a conversation about your photoshoot needs. Afterwards I will send you a proposal.
    • + What is included?

      • A basic session includes a 30-minute phone consultation, 90 minutes of shooting time, and a minimum of twenty beautifully retouched digital images from our shoot. Traveling to more than one location, and outfit changes, are included in shooting time.
    • + When will I get my images?

      • I make every effort to have the photos processed and the digital files in your keeping within two weeks or less. If you are needing the photos for a time-sensitive event (a holiday card, a website release, etc.), please let me know right away.
    • + How should I prepare for my photo session with you?

      • This depends on the type of shoot & I will provide information tailored to your session beforehand. But in general, think about how you want your hair, makeup and styling. If you're receiving professional beauty services, secure your appointments as soon as we book the day for your shoot and leave plenty of time so you can arrive to our session without feeling hurried and rushed. Be sure to use beauty products that do not reflect light or make your skin ashy. Ingredients you want to avoid: titanium dioxide, silica, zinc oxide, extra shimmer & glitter, most SPFs. Unless you are going for glam, you don't need to pile on the hair spray and lashes. :) Do what you normally do so you feel comfortable, confident, and lovely.
    • + What happens next?

      • Once you submit a photography inquiry I will get in touch and we will discuss the specifics around your session, including date, location, and more. After our conversation I will send you a proposal and contract which you can easily read and sign online. A 50% non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your session, with the remainder due before the shoot. Additional details will be in the contract.
