Rachel is very inspirational, she oozes a passion for life and her smile will warm a room.
I asked Rachel to share a little about herself and her experience behind my camera and she accepted my offer.
The photo below is what Rachel looked like about a year ago and following her words are the photos I captured of Rachel.
Lastly, I want to share the words that stuck in my mind that Rachel shared with me on the phone after seeing her proofs. She said, "I can't imagine ever looking better that I do". Wow, those words were like music to my ears. Seriously how many of us out there can feel that about themselves. Rachel you look amazing but more so you are an amazing soul and that is what shone through my lens and became beautiful photos.
Thank you Rachel!
All of my life I wondered what it was like to be that model behind the camera; To feel the glamour, the beauty and the confidence that these women portray. Growing up, I was always overweight, convinced that exercise didn’t work and lost a lot of self esteem along the way. It wasn’t until I turned 23 that my eyes were truly opened. I was 260 pounds and on the verge of having heart problems. I knew then that something needed to change. With a tremendous amount of support from friends and family, I changed my lifestyle for the better. Slowly realizing that every decision I made mattered, I cut out things like fast food and soda pop, started to eat more organically and in moderation. Exercise is a lot more effective when you eat healthy! Today, when people ask me why I made this change, I simply reply “because I’m worth it”. After two years of working hard I am now 150 pounds and am loving life more than ever.
Recently I had the incredible honor of a beautiful photo shoot with Jill Rosell. The experience for me was a complete joy! Not only is Jill full of creativity, she is also full of passion for photography. This love and passion is put into every photograph. Being her model I felt all the glamour, the beauty and the confidence I had always hoped I would feel behind the camera. My photos could not look better and I could not be a happier client. Jill truly captured my soul and wonderful memories for me and for that, I will always be grateful.
The new Rachel.....
