What do you love about Photography? I love that photography can draw a viewer into the picture. Looking through a book of Annie Leibovitz, you can stare for hours at some of the images she captured. Sometimes its just that glance back from the subject that draws you in or shapes and lines within the picture that are captivating. With kids, I find this can be so much fun to capture as they tend to wear their feelings and emotions of the day on their sleeves. You are drawn right into their silliness, reflectiveness or whatever they may be feeling that day. 

What is your favorite movie of all time? Bridget Jone’s Diary!

Do you have happy and depressed moments during your creative cycle? Yes definitely. I think as photographers in general, we tend to be really critical of ourselves and our work. For myself, I love getting the shot I’ve visualized, but there are times when it doesn’t come off like I envisioned.

What do you believe in? Family

If you could attend one class/workshop this year, who would it be with? I will already be attending, with Miss Wende Trew and Kandi Lamont!

If you could live anywhere for a year, where would that be? Somewhere in France or Italy. Having traveled there, they have some of the most beautiful spots to photograph.

What is your favorite charity? A lot of charities involving children. I also have been linked to “sisters” with Women for Women International for the last several years. This charity funds other women in the world who go through a program to teach them skills/educate to support their families.

What one food could you eat every day? Chips n’ salsa

These are Rachel’s current favorite images:

Why do you love these images? I love her cat like eyes on the first one and the variety of colors. On the second, I love this image mostly because I remember when taking it, how she loved to pose for me. Her personality was just that, pose for the camera with that grin. Love it.

What were your settings with them? The first was shot at f/1.8, 1/1250 and ISO 200; the second at f/2.8, 1/250 and ISO 200

Thank you, Rachel! 

Stay tuned for next week's Featured Photographer,  Anelle Richardson from Ottawa, Canada!
