My name is Rachel Goodson (soon to be Rachel Quinn). I am engaged to the best guy ever. I am a senior at Troy University studying Graphic Design and Photography. I grew up in Prattville, Alabama and attended Prattville Christian Academy with my twin sister. I enjoy creating unique photographs and looking at all kinds of art.

I was fortunate enough to discover my interest in photography at the early age of sixteen. I began by shooting conceptual photography and experimental self-portraiture to hone my skills in my hometown of Prattville, Alabama. With the digital age of photography evolving alongside me – I extended my knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. At eighteen, I started my own photography business and soon found myself shooting for portrait and wedding clients.

I am influenced by past and present styles; whenever I shoot I like to create stories with an underlying sense of narrative, whether this is in my personal or professional work. I am deeply inspired by elements of fantasy and fairytales, and I aspire to create those dreamlike qualities in reality. All of my experiences in life thus far have been reflected through my imagery, and continue to shape me personally, and as an artist.
