Hello! My name is Rachel and I am the creative vision and principal photographer of Avant Garde Studios. I love new and unusual experimental ideas that result in bold and dynamic images that represent you. Growing up in North Carolina, I found photography at an early age, something I thought would be cool to learn, cool to be, as a child would think. As I grew older, the idea never left and I had grandiose ideas of working for National Geographic to Vogue as one so young can have, but it always came down to being a photographer. I am lucky to know early that I wanted to be a photographer and am so glad I get to live my passion every day..
