Rachel is starting her senior year at Carolina Day School, a private school in Asheville. Her photography studies began at home, where she was introduced to the art and craft by her mother, Wendy, who is the school's photography teacher. Rachel also studied in middle school, where sixth and seventh graders were required to take photography courses. "I think photography should be required in all middle schools," Rachel says, citing the benefits of documenting class work as well as school trips.

A photo course last summer at the University of North Carolina at Asheville taught her darkroom techniques, but she credits her mother for her familiarity with the handcoloring that helped produce these images.
