I'm Rachel

Opening ourselves to be seen by another is a brave act.

My photography is intimacy work.

It involves taking risks to connect to people in their full humanity: reflecting back the beauty, the vulnerability, the love, the humor, the fragility, the tenderness and the magic that surrounds us.

In the grand scheme of time on Earth we are here for a flash. That can be so painful to hold. Creating photographs of what is most precious to people on this wild journey is the honor of my life.
