I'm Rachel Marie and I've had a passion for photography since I was 16 years old. My dad bought me a Canon SLR for my sweet sixteen. I used to smile at the sound of the shutter release, the magical sound of capturing a moment in time. I used to save all my money so that I could go to Walgreens and develop the film. Now days, film is unfortunately considered antiquated and I am a mere Luddite.
