My name is Rachel, and I am a photo addict. Fact. I have an embarrassing number of albums around my house, prints in all sorts of random places, and a serious lack of art pieces, because the walls have been taken over by pictures of my family. I love all images that bring back a memory. Things that make me laugh or smile, or remember where I came from. I am an overly sentimental person in most things I do, and I'm pretty okay with that. I spend most of my days in my office working on pictures, usually with a little one on the floor beside me playing lego and asking 8 million questions. When I'm not working, I love to quilt, pour over interior design books, or go for walks with my family. I love all things creative, pretty and organized, and I'm pretty sure I'm slightly OCD in certain areas of my life. My husband would agree.
When it comes to my job as a photographer, I'm extremely passionate. I get excited when I watch two people so madly in love say I do. I go with the flow and fully understand when a child has a total meltdown in the middle of a session. I've been there in both occasions! I've been married to my best friend for 11 years, and we have 5 kids. I've had tons of experience with love, with kids, and with challenges. There's so much beauty in all of it! I want to capture images that could be art, pieces you could print huge to hang in your home. And I also want to capture moments - memories, personalities, relationships, emotions. So many things that can easily be forgotten when you don't have the images to look back on and remember. It's such an honour to have people trust me to capture those things, and I put my everything into every session and wedding I shoot. For me, that's not a challenge, because it's something I'm genuinely excited about!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions at all! I'd love to hang out and photograph some memories!
