Hi, I'm Rain

‚ÄčTaking beautiful pictures of people has been something I've danced around for years.  From modeling for artist photographers and directing photo shoots, photo editing and graphic art, to familiarity with the human form, this is a long awaited culmination of interests into one vision.

One of my unique skill sets is to see the lines of a body and the ways in which it can improve in symmetry and flow.   There is so much beauty to be found in every person.   In the textures of your skin, the planes of how your body moves and in the grace of personality that I see and want to use to show you to you.

Your photo-shoot will be individually suited to you.   There will be no cookie cutter images to be found here.   You can relax in the knowledge that I have practiced eye that has labeled me a master craftsman in all the mediums I've tried my hand at.  You are in good hands.   Connecting with a person one on one and putting people at ease is something I excel at.   Any nerves you might arrive with will melt away, that's a promise.

Let me showcase the beautiful person you are with images that are uniquely personal.

Where do the photo shoots happen?
 Right now I have three primary shooting locations.
- 1st is in a group of AirBnbs in Occoquan VA.  They are beautiful and each have their own style and backdrops to offer.  The town is charming with plenty of places to go have lunch while I prepare your images for selection.
- 2nd is the great outdoors!  If you like my images out in nature, let's do that!
- 3rd is your home or requested location.  If you have an idea, let's make it happen!

Do you provide the wardrobe?
At this time, I do not have a client wardrobe. However, I do have a collection of photogenic jewelry items, scarves, feathers, etc. to flesh out what you bring to wear.  Once you fill out the questionnaire and we chat, I will be able to suggest items for you to gather that will fit the mood you're after and your body type.  I try to keep my suggestions affordable and you may be surprised how many things you already have.

Is hair and makeup included in your basic package?
Yes!  However, I do love to work with women in their natural and every day look as well (most of the images here on my website did not use a makeup artist).  I have had the experience of getting too much makeup caked on in a style that was not typical for me.  My pictures didn't end up looking like me at all.  I want you to be the star, I want to show you that you are beautiful without needing a makeover.  However, makeovers are also fun!  If that's what you want to do, let's do it!  You and I will work together with a stylist to find a look that is perfect for you.

What if I don't know what "look" I'm looking for?
You can relax.  I am a master at reading people.  Also, my questionnaire doesn't just point blank ask you to choose a style. It asks about you, giving me the information I need to guide you to where you want to go even if you don't know where that is yet.
