We’ve had the pleasure of working with Rebecca on multiple occasions, and each time she impresses us more with her spirit, professionalism, and genuine connection to her subjects. Rebecca is more than a photographer—she brings the best of life out of people, and she’s a total joy to work with.
I have had the chance to work with Rebecca; In a word, she’s amazing…She is able to capture children in their natural state of being. Her photos have a beautiful vulnerability to them. On top of raw talent, she's personable and flexible. Working with her is easy: she is collaborative and open to ideas.
You just have to look at Rebecca’s images to know she’s a great photographer, but she’s also a great person to work with. Rebecca has a knack for putting people at ease when they’re in front of a camera. She always seems to know exactly what to do or say to capture the depth and emotion you’re looking for.
