About This Blog

This is the part of the blog where I tell you about myself and my photography. My name is Rachel Russo and I live in San Angelo, Texas...okay, enough about me.
My sessions are designed to be FUN and very relaxed. With some encouragement and direction, all sessions are allowed to unfold naturally, making each and every one unique and true to the subjects.
All sessions take place on-location. You may choose a location or I will be happy to make some recommendations. I recommend selecting a place where you/your child feel comfortable and free to be yourselves.
For more information or pricing please visit my website.
P.S. I absolutely LOVE when you leave me comments! It makes my day!

Things that make me drool........

Came across this SUPER cute pillow while “pouncing” on etsy.com today.

If only I could justify spending this kind of $$ on a dress…..

I think this family tree would make an AHH-MAZE-ZING gift for a mother or grandmother! What a cool piece of art to display?!?!

A couple of my friends were in the Ermenegildo Zegna show this season in Milan and when I saw this picture my jaw dropped! I have found myself telling tons of people about these fabulous suits and I have no idea why….what do I care?! Haha. But I think these suits look so classy!

I wish I could have afforded to purchase this AWESOME barnwood floor RUG for my booth at the showcase. Maybe one day….

Bridal Expo Recap!!

It finally came and it's finally over! It was super fun! I was so pleased with how my booth turned out. I could not have not pulled this off without the help of my family. My dad's construction/carpentry skills, my mom's knack for decorating, my sister's dedication and commitment to helping me build this business, and my brother-in-law's muscles and babysitting skills;) We all came together and made it happen!!!

Congratulations to KRISTI WARRICK and STEVE BAKER! They were the winners of the free portrait session drawing!!!

I feel like I keep posting specials and I usually don't post this far in advance, but I have had a lot of people asking about Senior portraits so I wanted to go ahead and let you all in on the special for March.

Kensie+Stephen {ENGAGED}

I met with these guys about a month ago and as we talked about their personalities and my shooting style, we realized that we were a perfect fit. I love everything about this shoot. Kensie and Stephen, along with their great ideas, made this shoot one of my favorites. ENJOY!
