This is me

Updated: Apr 29


Well, hello there friend and thank you so much for stopping by!


My name is Rachel Baskin – the dreamer behind the lens – and it’s my pleasure to meet you. It’s customary when you meet someone new to introduce yourself and to share a couple little fun facts about yourself.

So, in the name of being the well-mannered child that my mom worked hard to raise – I will go ahead and introduce myself.


So here goes…


First thing you need to know about me…if chocolate was a man, I would have married him! Friend, chocolate and I have an unbreakable bond – and believe me, I know that this bond is unbreakable because I have tried to break up with chocolate many times and let’s just say that I am finally at the point where I have decided to stop fighting my feelings. Chocolate and I are meant to be and I have finally decided to accept that truth! There’s not point in trying to deny that chocolate and I…we’re soul mates! And I am no fickle lover of chocolate – I love him in all his forms: dark chocolate; milk chocolate; white chocolate; chocolate with nuts or just plain, smooth chocolate…I love the stuff!


Okay, so I’m a little chocolate crazy…but that’s just who I am I guess #SorryNotSorry

Another thing to know about me: I am totally crazy about my beautiful family! My husband and our three children fill my life with so much! I am so blessed to have them and if I never had another bite of chocolate again, my life would lack no sweetness because of the richness and fullness that my family brings to me. I have found my soulmate in my husband and the joy that our children have brought into our lives makes everything else pale in comparison and I thank God everyday for the blessing that is my husband and our children!

We’re an adventurous kind of family – we love to hike; take spontaneous road trips and vacations; have BBQ’s that last all Summer long and explore the nature that surrounds us. Hubby and I are now officially outnumbered by the kids but sometimes, we can be like big kids ourselves so yeah, things can get pretty hilarious, pretty quickly – and I love it!


Rachel Baskin fun fact number three: I love to laugh! Nothing beats a good YouTube fail compilation or cats getting scarred by cucumbers (Youtube this now; thank me later in the comments below!)

There is a lot in life that can be either scary or challenging or painful. Life is hard; adulting is hard…so, whenever I can take a moment to sit back and enjoy a carefree moment with my loved ones that is filled with fun; joy and laughter, you best believe that I am all over that moment in a heartbeat!


And that my friend, is me. There is so much more that I would love to share with you – and over time, I will. But if there’s one last thing that I would like to share with you before ending this post, it’s that I look forward to one day working with you.

My goal as I work with clients like yourself is to provide you with a seamless, smooth and stress-free photography experience where you walk away from us having worked together feeling, valued, served, loved and cared for while being in possession of timelessly beautiful images that you and your family will treasure for a long, long time.


I look forward to connecting with you more on this blog so be sure to check back in often. Also, be sure to connect with me on Facebook and Instagram.


Have a great day friend!
