Hello! Thank you for visiting my site. I’m Rachel and as you have probably guessed I love photography. Growing up, I remember my dad loved to photograph, so maybe this is where I get my passion from. I have boxes upon boxes of old images and slides from when my dad was growing up, to when he first met my mum and from when my brother and I were little. Sadly my parents are no longer with me, but their memories are. Without my dad's collection of images I wouldn't know half the things I know about them; who they were as young people, what they enjoyed doing and what we did growing up as a family. These images are full of precious moments of time gone by, snippets of history frozen and preserved for future generations like myself and my children to enjoy and appreciate. That's the beauty of photographs.
I bought my first DSLR camera in 2007 and after moving to Australia in 2010 I joined an amazing photography school. Not only did I meet some fantastic like minded people but I loved it so much I studied there part time until moving back to England in 2015. I love to learn and I love that I am constantly learning, photography allows me the freedom and creativity to do this. There is always something new and exciting to discover. It is my creative outlet!
I am also a mother of two beautiful kids and one fur baby (Wilson the dog). I love being a mum and know all too much about how quickly time passes by. Nothing in this life will ever stay exactly the same; what's here today will soon be gone and for me that's reason enough to want to capture those special fleeting moments. I want my children to have a record of who we were and what we did.
I’m finally getting to do what I love and at the same time meeting some lovely people. My sessions are all about having fun, relaxing and being natural. There is nothing more rewarding than to have people love the photographs I create for them. That’s why I do it. And I can’t imagine anything better...
