Racquel was absolutely amazing! My roommate and I had our graduation pictures and she made it such a memorable experience. My roommate and I were a little nervous because we wanted it to all go well and feel special. We were not let down! Racquel made us feel so comfortable and most importantly beautiful. She was very prepared and gave helpful tips and tricks. We had an absolute blast during the whole photoshoot and can’t wait to see the results! Don’t hesitate to book with Racquel, you won’t be disappointed!

Details: Graduation portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

I don't have enough great things to say about my experience with Racquel. I had to take some professional headshots and was nervous about being in front of a camera. She quickly explained her process and made me feel very comfortable. The photos themselves turned out so great, as well!

Muna, thank you so much! You were a joy to work with. Let me know when it's time to refresh the headshots.
