I have a confession to make. I think dogs are just alright. Okay, all dogs except french bulldogs. Those are perfect. However, I know this to be an anomaly and that most others would rather surround themselves with dogs than with humans. Why, I’m not entirely sure. So taking a step in bravery, I suggested … More Let’s go to the dog park.
As long as there’s no rain. Bring on those clouds. We’ll shoot right through ’em. Sure, bring the reflector too. Huge thanks to Andrew Letter for being up for a challenge. Hard to believe he’s never modeled a day in his life. Killed it. Check out more from our session together here: https://raquelrossphotography.pixieset.com/andrewletter/ Until next time, … More Clouds don’t bother me none

Shooting with little ones is always a little unpredictable, but in the best possible way. With my last family shoot, I found myself asking the youngest member what she’d like to listen to. When she replied “Mo”, her parents quickly translated: Moana. Well, that settled it. For the next 60 minutes, we danced, we sang, … More What can I say except you’re welcome
1 year. This comes to mind as I stare at the images of this sweet family: just 1 year ago, the smallest of this group was not here. Just 1 year ago, his name was being spoken in excited whispers. 1 year. When your entire life as you know it has been 365 days, how … More 1 Year
There is something soothing about the inkiness of black. I don’t really have much else to say. Huge thanks to my dear friend, Emily Cline for 1: being a smokin’ model and 2: always being down for the never-ending impromptu shoots. She was in town just trying to enjoy the city and I probably made … More [untitled]
An Ode to Those Stuck in Darkrooms.

It’s currently 4:54. I just felt I should start with that. I’m glancing over to the couch across from me and soft light is spilling in through the window. I have a ton of things to do. I kind of wish I had a French Bulldog. But one that would take itself on walks and pay … More It’s 4:54
For no man, as the adage goes. I was looking through my iPhone where I keep a note with thoughts that strike me. This one is a quote that I’d forgotten: “I could tell the time was winding down in 2016–I could feel the weeks rushing by. I deliver meals on Tuesdays. As soon as … More Time Waits
Let me tell you my feelings on nature. It’s awful. Allow me to explain. There are few times where the stillness and observance of something can stun me into humility. But think on this: water, earth. Think. A lake. A waterfall. A mountain. A gorge. I personally find deep fascination with bringing about the new, … More Nature is an awful thing.
