Hiya!

Let me introduce myself


Growing up in a small town in upstate New York definitely helped shape who I am today. Granville, New York. A place where everyone knows who you are and where you live. Also the only place I've ever known as 'home'.

For those who don’t know me - I’m Rachelle. Pronounced like Rachel, but with a French twist. I’m a girl mama, a wife, and a dog-mama to 3 German Short-haired Pointers. Also a Care Manager and an established business owner. I am Forever Young Photography.

I'm due to welcome a second baby girl in March of 2024. I will not be accepting any booking requests between the months of February and mid-April. I plan to disconnect from all work-related tasks for a minimum of 4-weeks upon her arrival, which I will announce via social media.

lover of simplicity,

storyteller of raw emotions

& connections


Photography has been a hobby that’s fueled my soul since I was a little girl, always with a trendy disposable camera in-hand. It has always been about capturing moments, big + small, but it’s become something so much more over the years.


The simplicity of a moment. The raw emotions. The connection. The love & all of the laugher shared.


Together we’ll explore. I will offer creative prompts and posing suggestions to help get you comfortable in front of my lens (and throughout our session, if necessary). I want to create a gallery full of moments that will tell part of your story, for the years & the generations ahead.
