*Note* I'll be taking a break from photography during the holidays to get caught up on everything, update things, and sort out some personal issues. I look forward to coming back in the new year.
*Please read this before adding me or accepting my friend request. If I send you a friend request, it means that I plan on working with you in the future. If I send you an email asking about doing a photoshoot, please at least be courteous and respond back. I don't mind being told that you're not interested, but at least reply back telling me so. I feel it's rude to leave a person waiting/wondering. Also, that being said, I'm not here to have a million 'friends'. Also, I'm not here for dating. I'm here for work and professionalism. I will not accept friend request from those who are more than three (3) hours away as I cannot usually travel that far (unless I'm already going to be in the area).
Furthermore, my biggest pet peeve is being late/canceling at the last minute. If it is a TRUE EMERGENCY, I understand. However, if you're just late for whatever reason, I will not work with you in the future. I don't want to sound mean, but I find that to be rude, unprofessional, and wasteful of everybody's time.*
My name is Rachel and I've been into photography ever since I can remember. Ever since I was a little child, I have loved taking photos of my family friends. During my senior year of high school, I started working on my photos (mostly scenery). I have been doing photography and photoshoots for three years.
The following is the link to my first publication of my work in the local Adara magazine.

A photoshoot usually lasts between one (1) hours and three (3) hours. I'm fine with models bringing an escort, but please remember that this is a professional photoshoot and should be treated as such by all parties involved. In addition, I also reserve the right to bring either an escort or a photography assistant. They will also be professional and not get in the way of the photoshoot. Also, if you have a cell phone, please put it on vibrate so as not to be a distraction. While I'm fine with answering a call if it's very important, please don't proceed to talk on it for a long period of time. I consider that to be rude and wasteful of time.
Other types of shoots I do are couples, weddings, wedding receptions, and other events.
My favorite type of photograph is on that is in black and white that can tell a story.
My ultimate goal is to create a magazine for local photographers to use as a stepping stone to showcase his/her work. Another dream of mine is to travel to different parts of the world photographing different landmarks and people.
By utilizing Model Mayhem, I hope to come away with more contacts (models and photographers) that I can work with in the future. I hope to gain exposure.
