ABOUT

Hello friends!  My name is Ra’chelle Redding and I am honored that you have taken the time to get to know a bit about me!

I grew up in, as well as raised my own family in Missouri, while my soul always yearned for the warmth of the sand under my feet and the smell of the ocean air.  I am married to the love of my life and together we have 3 beautiful children who have grown up and blessed us with (so far) 2 incredible grandchildren.

After 20 years of adulting, raising kids, and working multiple jobs while simultaneously growing my photography business, we finally made our way to sunny Florida almost 3 years ago to begin a new chapter in our lives.

Building a whole new clientele in a new state has been such an amazing adventure so far.  I have met some beautiful people and have never had so many breathtaking options for shoot locations in my life!  I love to photograph utilizing the beauty of our natural surroundings with all its gorgeous ambient light and shadows, sun flares and skyscapes.

I am a person who loves big and I become enamored with the emotional connections that I see in people….in the little boy with his momma, the daddy with his newborn baby girl, the couple as they recite their vows to each other, the woman who has fallen back in love with life after beating the “C” monster, the siblings who just met their new puppy, the family who just birthed their “rainbow” baby.  Love comes in multiple forms and the warmth and intimacy that radiates from these love connections is where I like to freeze time through my lens.  I am passionate about shooting in an organic manner that captures those fleeting moments of raw emotion.  Those authentic bursts of laughter, looks of surprise, and smiles that are radiating from the heart…..I want to capture these moments and create imagery for you that will immediately take you back to that moment in time.

I also feel strongly about making sure your session is unique to you and your story.  I don’t like to limit myself to a specific amount of time or number of images, because every session I do will be different from the last, as it should be.  I work very closely with each client to build a vision for their session.  My goal is to exceed all expectations so that I can continue to grow with you, capturing all of your life’s milestones in fresh new ways each time.
