Welcome to Charles & Mae Photography


Charles & Mae exists to capture moments and give back to the local community.

A bit about me

I'm not Charles or Mae, but those names are near and dear to me. My name is Rachel Lawson (known as "Mom" by a few tiny humans). And, as a mom, I know how quickly it all flies. I am driven by the quick passing of time to capture people as they are in this moment right now. So, yes to all the photos! And yes to lots of coffee, chocolate, long walks, and any moment on a beach that I can snag.


Giving Back

My husband and I have been foster parents since 2012. That passion has led me to give 10% of every session fee to a local nonprofit (SAFFT) that supports foster and adoptive families and children.
