Hello, I'm Rachel!


I am a professional photographer who just so happens to be a proud dance mom. What started as a hobby to photograph my daughter in her element has escalated into a passion that brings me more joy than I could have ever hoped. My dance photography incorporates three main aspects that are always heavily represented in my work: personality, color, and movement. The images from your session will highlight your athletic strengths while capturing the beauty that lives inside.


"Dance is your words expressed with movement."

—Pablito Greco

FAQ

How Do I Book?

Booking a studio session with me is super simple! Simply click the Book Online tab at the top of this page. You will be taken to a site to select your date and time. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book your session.

Where Do The Studio Sessions Take Place?

All studio sessions take place at Core Dance Studio in San Luis Obispo, CA.

What Happens After I Book?

Once you schedule your session online, you will be emailed a contract, remaining invoice and questionnaire within 24 hours. The questionnaire is the most important part as it helps me get to know you as a dancer and person. My main goal during your session is to highlight your strengths and amplify your personality! I'm always just a phone call or text away if you'd like to run any ideas by me before your session.

What Should I Wear To My Session?

What you wear depends entirely on the style of dance you wish to portray in your photos. I recommend bringing lots of options so we can get creative throughout your session. Your comfort is key. Bring clothing that represents your personality and your style. Don't forget to pack the basics: black leotard, leggings and sports bras.

What Happens After My Session?

Once your session is complete, I will be sure to send you a couple sneak peeks of my favorites within 24 hours! Then, within 48 hours, you will receive a proofing gallery of all of your photos unedited. The proofing gallery allows you to select which images you'd like me to edit. The number of images I will edit, depends on the collection you have purchased. Once you have selected your images, the final images will be delivered in an online gallery within 10 days.

Can I Split My Session With a Friend?

Sure! You can bring up to 2 friends to your session for an additional $100 per dancer. An additional three digital images per dancer will also be added to your collection.

Can I Schedule an Outdoor Session?

Absolutely! I've been a natural light family photographer for almost 10 years now and shooting outdoors (especially at golden hour) is my jam! I am very familiar with all kinds of locations throughout SLO County. Contact me directly to schedule these sessions.
