Mesmerised by photographs in glossy fashion magazines as a child, I grew up in France with the idea of creating beauty through photography.

I did everything by the book and followed reason over heart, embracing a more traditional career path until I left the corporate world to go back to University to study for an MA in Fine Art Photography.


Reaching the big 5 in 2014 made me realise that my drive to make a difference in women's live was now or never!  I created By Rachel V Portraits combining my love of portraiture and making a difference in Women's live to show them how beautiful they are! I want to help you reconnect with your true self, blossom and celebrate yourself, existing in photographs.

"My mission is to make you look and feel incredible in front of the camera! I can assure you that you will be a different person after your photo session!

I will make you feel like a million dollar.

You get your hair and make up done then it takes less pressure on you, get pampered, I can hire a stylist for you to help you with your wardrobe. 

"If you tell me I feel nervous, I get you!". 

I had my own photoshoot done by a professional photographer. I completely understand how you feel at the idea of being photographed. This is how I felt when I was in the make-up seat!  It is all down to the photographer to make you forget that you're standing in front of a camera, make you feel like a celebrity.

You will have your photos done, relax have fun and at the end you get beautiful portraits for yourself, your family, your kids to have. You will have a wonderful time and I will make it super easy for you!

A great portrait photographer, is more than someone with a camera, it’s the connection that creates great portraits and I take great pride to get to know you before a photo shoot understanding how you dream to be photographed. 

Together we will design and style your specific photo shoot like a project from start to finish to have amazing portraits of yourself and remind you how gorgeous you are!
