Behind the lens

    My name is Rachel DeRose, and I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember. I am located in the Mid Michigan area, but I travel all over the country. I am happily married with two amazing children, a son named Elliott and a daughter named Marlowe, my life has never felt more complete.

     I started off with a determination that I was going to specialize in working with horses and strictly equine photography. After attending Lansing Community College for photography, I realized I had another passion, which was to photograph people. While I still love horses and working with them, it is no longer my primary focus. My favorite  way to shoot is to sit back and just watch people when they are most comfortable and being their true selves. I have found that the little moments make some of the most impactful images.

     My job as a photographer is extremely important, and I treat it that way. I want to create an image that will stay on the walls of your home forever.

             I absolutely love what I do.
