Rebecca's Story

Hello! Thanks so much for taking time to check out my little corner of the Web. A little bit on my photo herstory:

It all began years ago when I was given a 110mm hot pink Barbie camera for my fifth birthday. I absolutely loved running around documenting my family and pets with that camera, snapping away at the star-shaped shutter, anxiously waiting the film to come back from the local lab (yes, back then all we had was glorious film).

While my taste in colors and cameras have evolved over the years, my passion for documenting moments of life continued into adulthood. It led me to earn a Bachelor’s degree in photography from Webster University, where I learned multiple genres of photography including photojournalism, editorial, small, medium, and large-format film.

While at Webster I ended up meeting the guy who would eventually become my main second shooter and husband, Alex. We met in a Digital Imaging I course, where Alex's big Photoshop project was transforming his cocker spaniel Chester into Falcore the dragon from The NeverEnding Story. Who wouldn't fall in love with him, right?! We make a great documenting duo, and we love getting to capture other couple's love. 

I’ll be a great fit for you if you enjoy working with a relaxed but organized person. I don’t take myself too seriously and really like to listen to my client’s needs and wants so I can capture exactly what they’re looking for. If you schedule a session with me, you may see me pull out one of my secret weapons to break the ice and help put smiles on people’s faces. It’s a bright green squeaky pickle. Yes, I said a squeaky pickle. It’s amazing, unexpected, and I love it. The squeaky pickle has an interesting backstory too, so be sure to ask about it. I also usually end up sharing embarrassing stories from my childhood to bust out those natural laughs and smiles. Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty to go around for everyone.

Currently, Alex and I reside in Saint Louis, Mo., with our cats Haru and Henrietta, dog Rally, bunny Ned, and chickens Chewbawka, Kylo Hen, Arya, BB-8, and Princess Lay-a (and, yes, I'm a huge Star Wars geek and name my chickens after Star Wars poultry puns). When I have spare time I enjoy spending time with all my animal loves and family, volunteering with the spent-hen non-profit, Second-Hen’d, riding around on my 1987 BMW K75 (yes, geeks ride motorcycles too), and making tasty pies from scratch.

Thanks for stopping by, and now that you know a little bit about me I’d love to learn more about you and your photo needs!
