Rachel Kertz has been in love with taking photos for a while and discovered that other people actually enjoy her photos as well. Now she fills her days with as much photo-taking as she can. There are a million reasons why she loves photography, but the two most important: to be able to stop time and give it to others, and to show others that they are beautiful and memorable. If she can manage to do that for the rest of her life, she will be a very happy girl. Rachel is a graduate of Southeast Missouri State University, with a Bachelor’s in Communication Disorders. After graduating, she took courses in natural and studio lighting and is proficient in dark room developing procedures. Read and view more about her at Flickr , WordPress , and on Facebook.
