A Chat with Rachael Meader Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My business stands out from others because I only use natural light. This is much more flattering than the light in a studio setting. I also strive to make sure the client has an amazing and positive experience at every shoot.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I got my DSLR camera as a high school graduation present back in 2011. I took pictures of anyone who would pose for me. Soon my skills improved and my client base expanded. Now I get the joy of doing what I love and making people happy at the same time.
What do you love most about your job?
There is no greater feeling than seeing a smile appear on someone’s face because of something you created. I love to make people feel confident. My favorite part of a shoot is the moment when a client completely relaxes and just has fun in the moment.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I once had a session with a girl who was incredibly shy. Halfway through I showed her a few photos I had taken, and she got a huge smile on her face and relaxed. At the end of the shoot she said that she has never felt so beautiful and that all her friends were going to be jealous of her photos.
