Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

On my recent trip to Ohio, I got to visit my friend Sarah and watch her manage the mood swings of a 2 1/2 year old. I’m so impressed with mothers of toddlers.

“These portraits are awesome! I totally love them. Can’t decide if I like the color or bw more, but I know I’ve never looked so good in photos, ever. You totally caught how I think I look, and that feels great. -Joanna, Portland Feldenkrais practitioner

“This is a big step for me to be able to let someone photograph me and me being comfortable with it. The fact that you captured me as the person I am and want to be is such a big deal to me. Thanks for capturing ME!”

“I am feeling blessed that I got to experience how powerful a photo session can be when you’re on the other side of the camera. Definitely something that can be healing to your spirit. Thank you Rachel for giving me such a wonderful gift.” :)
-Margaret, Portland Photographer
