Hi! My name is Rachel. A few years ago, I made up a word:


/igzist ' āSH(ə)n/


1. The process, state, condition, or result of actively existing in the world with meaning & purpose 

This space is dedicated to just that. I am in pursuit of a more self-sufficient, less passive life, one that gets me up off the couch and digging deeply into what makes for a meaningful existence. On this site, you will find a mix of photography, writing, and various projects I'm working on at any given time. I love to meet and collaborate with new people!

I'm a natural light photographer who loves to do all things outdoors, in the fresh air. I've been photography-ing since college, when I received my first fancy DSLR camera as a birthday gift from my parents. What started out as a hobby has grown into a beautiful business that has brought me on many adventures and given me the chance to meet countless authentic, wonderful people around the world.
