Rachel DeBell Photography
Torrie and Justin contacted me about photographing their Maternity Session on the land surrounding their home in Glen Rose, Texas. Although it was quite a distance from where I live, it was absolutely worth the drive. The most lovely Texas landscape surrounds their home, everything from a small lake to rustic cacti. We had the most fun driving around on their ATV through mud and ditches, finding beauty and inspiration in every spot in between. The sky had become fairly cloudy before I arrived, so I was not quite sure what to expect from my film scans. But it turns out those clouds turned this rustic green Texas landscape into the most beautiful pastel setting for photographing this sweet growing family.
I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to photograph the most wonderful people and create something beautiful and memorable for them. However, I feel like the best part is truly connecting with each of my clients. I have some of the most memorable adventures in some of my sessions. I love that we are not only taking photographs but truly creating memories.
I am a hybrid photographer (digital and film) specializing in Motherhood, Maternity, and Families. I use mostly natural light for my images, so I would say I love everything from a soft pastel to a warm glow, depending on what light nature has to offer. And I have rarely met a beautiful, grainy black and white image I didn’t love.
