Teaching is a huge responsibility that I will never take lightly. My goal is never to have the learning end when the workshop ends, but to remain personally available to each and every photographer who takes a course with me. From observation styled Fly on the Wall workshops to intensive hands-on posing two day classes, I put my heart and soul into making sure that everyone leaves with their questions answered, problems solved, and skills exponentially increased.
I have been photographing Indianapolis’ newest residents since 2008, and love every second of it. As a wife and mother myself, I recognize the desire to capture not just family portraits, but real life and the joy that surrounds happy families. And when it comes to newborns, not one session goes by where I’m not marveling over the miracle that is new life. Every part of my job feels like a blessing because I get to do what I love. Whether it be shooting my client’s first sessions, teaching a group of women, or spending an afternoon editing in her studio – I’m passionate about my work and about helping others find the same joy.
Since the very first “Rachel Vanoven Newborn Posing Guide” was sold back in 2010, my goal has been to offer the very best in online education for photographers. The Posing Guide morphed into the Newborn eWorkshop, an interactive digital book that came with hours of newborn posing video. Eventually a version for family photography was created, with revisions and updates over the past five years. I am so thrilled to now offer monthly videos that can cover so much more than any other tutorials currently on the market. Not only will I be teaching my most current methods, but the friends and colleagues I have in this industry happen to be some of the best in the world, and they’ll be a part of our monthly guest appearances. Whether it’s newborns you’re interested in, weddings, marketing, families, boudoir or post processing, we will have it all inside the Rachel Vanoven Collective waiting for you.
