sunflower1 copyThis journey began in 2011 when I was at a real ‘crossroads’ in my life.

Hi, my name is Rachel and I’m the photographer of Crossroads Photography.

It was that moment when you step out in faith and go for what you really want to do, or continue doing what’s easy. I knew I wanted to pursue photography, but I really didn’t have the foggiest clue of how to go about doing that.

I was a junior at K-State studying psychology, living with my sister’s family and knowing that I didn’t want to sit in an office dealing with people like me all day. That said, I had two options, continue doing what was safe or step out of my comfy academic box and stretch myself.

Crossroads Photography was born.

It’s been interesting along the way. I’ve made some AMAZING friends and learned how to shoot in manual.  I’ve had days when I’ve compared myself to others and cried over the quality of my work.  Then there are days when I actually look back on that leap of faith and think… I’m actually here. And I’m growing. Becoming.  Praise God!

Through my photography, my desire is to give all glory to Jesus Christ. Without Him, I’d be utterly lost.  He is my best friend and greatest business partner.  I am so thankful to be able to do what I love every day. 

I pray that my photography can be a blessing to others, and reveal the true beauty within each individual I photograph.  Thanks for visiting my website, and God bless.
