I am Rachel Curtis. I've been practicing photography for 9 years. I am a mother of 3, wife, "cool" stepmom, artist, crocheter, cook and amateur cake decorator (just recently). I live and work in the Bangor, Maine area, with my husband, Randy. (Ra-chel & Ra-ndy - hence, Ra-Visions! Clever, no?). I've always been a creative person, expressing myself in writing, drawing, painting, music, gardening, cooking & baking, and photography. I'm a very passionate person, and get completely absorbed in everything I do. Some would say I'm completely right-brained, which explains why I'm a left-handed free spirit.
I've always welcomed creativity in my life. Growing up, I would keep journals, write poetry, I would bake and cook often, draw endlessly, take photos with my little Kodak, play the keyboard (badly-but I tried), & sing. Fast forward to adulthood. The most creative thing I found myself doing was doodling on a notepad while listening to customers on the phone. Then, in 2010 I picked up my first DSLR camera and took photos of my cousin's kids. That first amateur photo session, done right in my front yard, reignited my creativity. It was so refreshing to finally have a creative outlet again, and I've been looking through the lens ever since. I'm so grateful that I've found my gift(s) as I've grown, and continue to discover more as I try new things. I feel as though everyone has at least one special gift, and in this one life we are given, it is our responsibility to find what that gift is, and share it with the world.
