hi, i'm so glad you're here
I'm Rachel. I’m a photographer based in Glenview, IL, just north of Chicago, where I live with my husband, our three wild and crazy kids, Colin, Asher and Leila.
This is the part where you’d probably expect me to gush about my lifelong love of photography. Well, duh. Of course I love photos. Always have. That’s why I do what I do. But what I love just as much, if not more, is working with people. Kids – yes, of course! – and babies, especially babies, but mom and dad, you too! I am just NOT meant to crunch numbers behind a desk. All of that combined with the fact that I have a notoriously bad long term memory that sparked my own passion for documenting my kids days, for fear that I won’t actually remember these magical details that make up their childhood, and there you have it. Rachel Friedman Photography was born.
