I'm Rachel! In 2007, I was a stay at home mom who had a knack for using my Konica Minolta camera to take photos of my two (now 3) young children. That hobby slowly bloomed into a small photography business and I took up my first ever client via Craigslist in the spring of 2008. Ten years later, my passion to help other photographers turn hobbies into businesses and businesses into successful careers has been the driving force in creating the industry’s top source of online education.
I live in the good old heart of Brookville, IN with my husband, Nick and our little trio of children, Brynn, Nicholas and Josie. I'm always cold, nearly always barefoot, passionate about newborn safety, oversized t-shirts and helping others. I hate cancer, working out and cucumbers (but pickles are cool).
