This was an incredibly fun session! Not gonna lie…I kinda didn’t want to quit. Rachel was such a blast to photograph! What a natural! She had also picked out a few spots on her family’s farms, which turned out to be absolutely awesome locations!! One of the things I love about Rachel is her ability to be both absolutely adorable and feminine (in her killer red heels) while at the same time being totally tough as nails and fearless (climbing through the muddy banks to wade through streams). I guess you have to be pretty bad-ass if you own horses and compete as a trick-rider like she does. I actually met Rachel through her boyfriend, Anthony (my cousin). She had asked me if Anthony could be a prop during her session and I was all about it. He makes a pretty good prop if I do say so. I should start taking him on all my shoots. Just for fun, I snagged a few photos of a couple of the household pets. Rachel LOVES animals! She has even been considering pursuing a a career as a vet. Personally, I think she would be phenomenal at it! I’m so glad I got the chance to spend some time with Rachel and see what an amazing person she is and hopefully reveal a little bit of the same sentiment in these photos. Thanks, Rachel!!
