Hi, I’m Rachel! I’m a wife, a mom to 4 darling little girls & the most adorable baby boy, and I’m the creative behind The Visual Journalist.
I love make-up, reading, shopping, and crafting. I’m a total introvert, I hate melted cheese (I even take the cheese off of pizza!), and I’m allergic to the cold. For reals.
Photography was sort of an accident for me. In high school I worked for my Dad, who made documentaries. I was able to spend time learning lighting and other skills that are critically important in photography. I took a few photography classes in high school and college (though my degree is in something totally unrelated–social work!) When I got married, my dad talked my husband into getting me a nice camera, and once I had it I felt like I needed to use it. The more pictures I took the more I grew to love it. Now I can’t imagine my life without photography
