I create unique experiences for my subject, with a focus on fashion flair. My shooting style uses glamour techniques that make your images stand out from any you've had before. Your shape, size and age — none of that matters, as this will be your day to be pampered and feel amazing.

The pre-planning is just as important to me as the actual shoot day. We’ll build a mood board together and go over all the details so that we both have a clear idea of what to expect. I will be my own goofy happy self on the day of our shoot and will guide you through various poses to help you get the most natural "you" look.

More about Rachel R....

What do you love about your job?

I love working with diverse clients on personal projects that truly mean something to them. With the knowledge that the images we create together will propel them forward in success with their business, personal life, and make a lasting impression. There is no greater satisfaction than having an idea and making it real and come to life in a print, album or online gallery for my clients.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

For my repeat fashion/model clients we are always looking for interesting backgrounds and events to explore. Often times the changing seasons, and trends will determine the theme of the shoot, or the wardrobe itself will dictate how a shoot might be done. I love the variety involved and challenge of keeping each shoot beautiful and new again.

For my clients that need personal branding, or portfolio work I always start with a mood board and make sure that my lifestyle/documentary approach is the one for their needs. It all starts with a quick phone chat and a lot of questions to make sure we are the right fit for each other.
There is a lot of prep work to be done before a shoot, and I check in with my clients periodically and make sure we're all on the same page.

A fun fact about this photographer

I love to craft and bake having learned at an early age from several Aunts and my mother. I was a florist for many years and being able to create ephemeral art is so much fun!
