My LIfe, My Stories

Remember two weeks ago when it rained every day for five days straight? Gloom and doom doesn’t even begin to do that stretch of storms justice. It was dark and dreary out for what felt like forever, with no sun in the sky above. The one very bright spot in that stretch of days was […]

When my friend Arriel contacted me about doing a six month photo session for her son, Billy, I was beyond excited. First of all, LOOK. AT. THIS. KID. I’m sorry but I seriously couldn’t even handle his chunky cheeks and arm rolls. And don’t even get me started about that smile…you have your hands full […]

Maybe it’s because it’s almost Mother’s Day and I am good friends with this incredible mom (and dad), but I can’t help but feel my heartstrings being tugged as I write this post and look through these images. Capturing Jack and his new best buddy, Charlie, was magical in itself. I always love watching kids […]

When I first moved to Philly in 2010, I was fresh out of college, ready to change the world one student at a time as I began my service with Teach For America. As much as I put on my “I GOT THIS” front during those long, intense days of training in unair-conditioned classrooms, I […]

Andrea and I first met while working together in Drexel’s Athletics department. We immediately hit it off.

When mom-to-be Sarah emailed me to set up a newborn shoot, we hadn’t initially realized we were already connected in a funny way.

I think I was 10 when I realized that I hated my name. Well, mostly just my middle name. In a world full of normal sounding ones, like Ann or Elizabeth, there I was, stuck with the name Rachel Roshani. I didn’t even know how to pronounce it. I just knew it was foreign, meant […]

I think my mornings would be made infinitely better if I had this handsome little man rushing to open the door for me at the start of each week. Tommy was the newest big bro in town and wanted to make sure I knew it as he ran across the room to introduce me to […]

3-0. WHOA. Um, where did my 20s go? Seems to be the popular sentiment these days amongst my 29+1 year old friends, all of us trying to piece together the movie reel of our lives over this past decade. For me, the last 10 years were filled with major life changes (got married to my […]
