Guest Features

Inside the collective you will meet our featured guest photographer(s) of the month! Guest features are handpicked by Rachel to specialize in sessions ranging from Newborn, Maternity, Boudoir, Family, Couples and more. New videos will be uploaded the first & third Monday of every month and guest features will be retired the first Monday of the following month. Rachel’s videos stay up forever so be sure to watch the guest features first when you join!

Why The Collective?

I came up with the Collective when I realized that updating the eWorkshops every two years just wasn’t enough for the photographers I’m teaching. I want you guys to have up-to-date, current methods of posing, lighting and editing. I change up my style constantly and still learn new tips at nearly every session, so of course I want to share that knowledge sooner than every other year.

Let's party like it's 2020!

Quarantine day number: 543….Do we even have days anymore? Now that you have completed Netflix, made 50 snacks per day, and aced the 2nd grade in e-learning it’s time to invest in YOU as we look ahead to reopen our businesses in the coming months! The Collective vault videos are on sale to members only!!! Snag up your favorites for $12.50 each inside your membership account until May 18th! 

Guys, let’s be real this quarantine has been hard, and it is STILL hard for most of us. I know I have felt super productive some days and then a complete potato of a human the next. It’s been a trip that’s for sure, and the idea of getting back in the studio might feel distant, but it’s going to creep up on us and I want to be READY! As we dip through the highs and lows together navigating this new normal, I have an extra special treat just for Collective members to help you rise back up and grab hold of your business like never before.

This year is a hard year, but it can still be your year to grow and reach all of those big dreams you have. 

Starting May 1st at 11 EST until May 18th all of our past guest feature videos are on sale exclusively to Collective members! You can grab up your favorites or snag some you missed for only $12.50 USD each inside the vault!! We have never had a sale like this before, but I know how needed this is to keep us all growing during such uncertain times. When we get back to work, I just know this industry will be booming with creativity and talent, so lets take this time to zero in on all the changes you wish to see in your business!


The Collective is a dream come true! I have found your instruction to be what has made the most sense to me and is the most helpful at every stage of my learning newborn photography. You have a way of explaining posing, lighting, and angles so clearly, and your workflow makes so much sense. To have this learning at hand like this is SO GREAT. Thank you so much!! You are awesome and this site is awesome (and beautiful and easy to navigate) and I am so looking forward to more!

Can I just tell you how many "OOOHHHH, That's what I was doing wrong/need to be doing" moments I have had with the fly on the wall videos you just released! I've got a baby girl coming tomorrow and I absolutely can't wait for them to get here so I can try to fix some of the things that have been giving me issues! You're the best! Thanks so much!
