Welcome to Rae of Light Photography! Named that way because my middle name is Rae. Please allow me this time to tell you about myself. I grew up in a very small town called Colesburg, Iowa. I moved to Dubuque in 2005 for college. In 2008 I stepped way out of my comfort zone and moved to Hollywood, California. However, I only lasted there for a short time. It just wasn’t for me. I do still have some really great friends out there though!
I strive to make your experience with me not only wonderful but also unique to you and who you are as a person. I get to know everyone I work with on a personal level. I always put 100% of myself into every photo session that I do! I do not rush the editing process.
I shoot on location. I will one day have my own studio, but I do not right now. I currently live in Dubuque again, but this time I live with my own family! My husband and I have quite a full house! A know-it-all 13-year-old, a laid-back 7-year-old, and a 2-year-old who one day thinks he’s a dinosaur and the next a Ninja Turtle. Oh, and not to mention we also have two cats, a Siamese (Owen) and a black cat (Maizie), and two dogs, a Golden Retriever (Roman) and a beagle (Bayley).
