My name is Raquel.

I’m from Florida but now I live in an ice tundra (Boston). It’s quite a lovely ice tundra, though.

I like art in its many forms.

I could honestly eat spicy tuna rolls daily for the rest of my life.

I realize that last statement is very untrue.

Oddly, the only thing that consistently makes me cry is watching Neil deGrasse Tyson explain anything about the cosmos.

I get very philosophical on planes.

I believe quite strongly in an intentional and loving Creator.

Sometimes I ask strangers if they’d like to do a shoot sometime.

It’s terrifying.

Lost is the best show. Memento is the best movie. Emmanuel Lubezki makes me wish I knew what I was doing with a camera.

I started shooting portraits when I was 15 and I’m never going to quit.
