When I'm not photographing - Rachel K Varanelli

→ When I'm not photographing... ←

When I'm not photographing, I'm making my friends pose for photos. I'm pretend that I know what I'm doing with acrylic paint and blank canvases. I'm writing music, playing music, and listening to music. I'm most definitely a self-proclaimed music hipster. If the musican or band I like hits the radio, forget it! I'm done with them! (Haha) ..just because I like to go against the flow. I vocally lead up the band at my home church from behind the keyboard. My church is called Thrive and it's a huge part of our lives. We are so proud to be a part of the mission as well as the family of Thrive Church.

Speaking of family, both sides of our families have become close friends and our close friends have become family.  I cherish every moment spent with them.We actually ventured out to Europe with my brother and his wife, who have become our closest friends.  I love reading the Outlander novel series and watching the show, especially after hitting up all the hotspots in the actual country of Scotland. That means that anything to do with Sam Heughan, Scotland, or whiskey, will definitely take up my free time. 

If you haven't guessed it, I'm in love with traveling the globe and capturing the endless cultures the world has to offer. Whether it's day trips to discover hidden parts of New York City, flying to Ireland for a week, or discovering all of Europe, I'm in my glory. 

I'm a coffee connoisseur. (or so I'd like to think) I'm a soundtrack nerd. Succulents have invaded every room in my home. I'm the proud (obnoxious) doggy momma to an adorable little pitbull-mix, Cooper, who has stolen my heart, my hard drive space, and the foot of our bed.

I'm the happy wife to my darling husband, Christopher, who is seriously such a gem. Our story is a crazy adventure, but it's ours and I love it. We absolutely love exploring together and experiencing the world around us, no matter how near or far. Since our incredible October wedding in New England, I have fallen more and more in love with Christopher and who we are as a team. I would be lost without him. My favorite part about our lives is that it's together. Our marriage mission statement is to be the change we want to see in the world. Easy enough, right?

My relationship with Christ is the most important part of my life and I strive to honor him in everything that I accomplish in life, including my photography business. My life's purpose is to make his name and his love known, and that I would portray it through the way that I live my life and the way that I love people.
