Get to know your Instructor:

"Hey there, my name is Rachel from Rachel Leah Photography. I have been in the photography business for a bit over a decade, but in the past two years have switched from portrait photography of newborns, children, and families to now strictly creating Artistic Composites for clients across the globe, as well as designing book covers.

I am an adoptive mother of an amazing little boy, who has changed my life and taught me how to make beautiful things with what we've got - in both life AND photography (since he does not like to "sit" for photos... we've had to get creative!). I had such a great time creating for my boy that it lead to this major transition of focusing on digital artwork for clients as well.

It's my passion to create the artistic depictions of what is felt in the deepest, wordless places of our hearts - whether that is the boundless imagination of a child, or the strength, bravery, and gentleness of the human spirit. It's been my pleasure to be able to create for those I already have, and I am so privileged to now be able to share some edits, techniques and ideas with you all as well!"
