I’m Rachel, and my journey with photography is reflective of my journey with myself. I struggled with insecurity and self-image for a long time. I’d preach body-positivity and confidence to others, but couldn’t truly internalize it. So I picked up a camera.
I started learning how to love myself by learning how to truly compliment people from behind my camera. I learned how to focus on the beauty and the positivity of my subjects, and in turn learn to focus on the beauty and positivity in myself. I grew to really enjoy the opportunity each session presents to create something beautiful with my clients, learn from them, and use my leadership skills. Plus, it’s essentially a forced friendship. Big fan.
→ My BA is in Marketing and Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography.
→ I’m working on my MA in Communication (this girl loves her some critical theory).
→ I’m a fraternal twin and my counterpart is my best friend and unwitting model.
→ I have two cats named Figaro and Frank who are the loves of my life.

"Rachel came highly recommended to me as someone I could trust to take great proposal photos on our special day. Not only did the photos turn out great, Rachel was very responsive and collaborative through the entire process. We had our proposal pictures edited and sent over very quickly so we could make the announcement in a timely manner! Thanks Rachel!"

"Rachel is an incredible photographer and a true friend of mine. She has such a big heart and has given me photos that I can hold on to and look back on for the rest of my life. A little camera shy, I felt very awkward posing for photos at first, but Rachel was full of grace and patience with me as I tried every pose and walk and allowed me to find my model groove by the end! I fully endorse Rachel and her art. She is one-of-a-kind human and the photos express that perfectly."
