Behind the Lens

An Indiana girl from the start, I stayed for college where I explored the arts through theatre and music. This led to my big move to Los Angeles, and finally to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. For eight successful years I worked in residential real estate for the nation’s top builders. In the corporate world, clear communication is key, attention to detail is essential, and professionalism produces lasting relationships. 

Eventually, I knew it was time to fill my life with creativity and artistry again. Having always been fascinated by photography and how a single impactful image can tell a captivating story, I dedicated myself to pursuing the art. Within two years I was able to quit my day job and find my way back to my creative roots by becoming a full time professional photographer.

It was there I freely explored and fell in love with art—from running my fingertips over the endless types of sample paper, to the wall of markers in every color imaginable, catalog markups and why products ended up on the cutting room floor, and the smell of the warm pages and fresh ink off the massive commercial printer.

Rachel is a true artist with understanding of light, composition and the emotions that photographs can evoke. She is fun to be around, very professional, and put us all at ease. All of our guests were so excited when they saw the quality of her photography in the previews. We are still on a high from that day. We hired the best!
