Rachel Nielsen lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and five children. She is inspired by gorgeous backlight, can be bribed with a large Diet Coke and loves photographing weddings and, of course, her own children. It is rare for her to not stay up late reading each night and she will never pass on the chance to go waterskiing or scuba diving. She has been in business since 2010, loves connecting with other photographers and feels blessed to do something she loves.
Love her work, the PDF is very helpful but I didn't enjoy the breakout as much as all the others I have purchased and the video is 5 minutes long and doesn't reflect her style, almost an afterthought. natalie overthrow on 19th Mar 2018

It is jam-packed with information to help you achieve consistent, clean images, from start to finish. She will walk you through exposure, camera settings, tips for shooting in different types of light, interacting with clients, workflow and post processing, plus so much more. This breakout has totally exceeded my expectations --I have practiced all of her teaching, proving all to be true!! Candace on 27th Mar 2017
And on the first day i didn’t even hesitate to buy this break out! And i am so happy that i did! Let me first say, have you ever just felt so inspired by another photographer and felt so taken away by the images that they create? Well that’s exactly how i feel about Rachel Nielsen. I have followed her work for a few years and have always felt so inspired by how her use of light and her unique ability to be able to create such natural, emotive and authentic connections thru her photographs. It’s really like there isn’t ANYTHING this woman cannot do! She beautifully blends in atmosphere and lighting and emotion in each of her images…whether it’s just 1 subject she is photographing from her beautiful, glowing bride’s or the innocence and laughter from a child…all the way thru her personal images to her couple’s and weddings…THIS WOMAN CAN DO IT ALL! And keep everything so consistent to her signature luminous, romantic, and clean style… And in this break out she surely brings it! And does not hold back with any secrets in her creative approach. She is really an amazing teacher and explained thing’s in a way that made me think “ah-ha!” and i was so excited to start practicing what i had learned from her gorgeous image and information packed e book….I am more of a visual learner…it’s hard to keep my attention to one thing for a long period of time (photographer brain anyone? lol) So i really appreciated her videos, shooting a real session….and her editing video’s….this is like a mini course that’s packed with easy to understand information and guidance from photographers just starting out to seasoned pro’s….Rachel talks about the technicals of learning your camera and finding beautiful light…to her own camera settings and her own approach to finding the perfect light and how she came up with a process that worked for HER to achieving consistent results that she loved every time….and how she is able to keep those results consistent thru out your whole workflow…from shooting to the finished product. How she is able to get that romantic clean style quickly thru batch editing and hand editing and what she uses to be able to achieve her consistent style her clients adore her for with a quick turn around of their gallery. Not only does she talk about her client work and teach you how to be consistent and successful with your business. But she goes over every detail start to finish in her approach to her personal work with documenting her own family. Rachel has a pretty large family and her children are from the ages of young child to teenager’s….she has a LOAD of information and secrets for how she able to get authentic emotions from her own children and remain creative and still grow as a photographer and a mother…
And really it doesn’t stop there! One of the thing’s i have always been so drawn to in her work is her ability to create such NATURAL PERFECTION in posing her client’s….it feel’s so real like you are experiencing what THEY FEEL. And she does this so flawlessly, and has such an organic approach bringing out that raw connection with the way she places her couples, brides and her journalistic approach to wedding’s and children…and i feel like i have grown by leaps since this Break out…I always revisit it when i need a little push in my creativity and as a refresher for when i question my technical skills…It’s just an all around amazing break out…and its worth every penny i invested…
If your looking to strengthen and develop your photography style and vision or create authentic connection and strengthen your posing skills and be able to communicate with your subjects to encourage natural emotive interaction. This break out is for YOU!

Learning to utilize the atmosphere and light around you? This is for you! Seriously, this break out is for you! It has been a real game changer for me…thank you Rachel!!! Mari Huffman on 18th Jan 2017
It was exactly what I needed to take my portrait photography to the next level. I am finally able to get that consistent look in my photos that I have been striving for. Rachel’s camera settings and post processing workflow were invaluable to me. I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am with my results after putting this new knowledge into my photo sessions. im so thankful to Rachel for sharing her insight and her beautiful photos and videos. This breakout is a must for portrait photographers. Deanna Rojano on 18th Jan 2017
I bought this after I read that it came with a video of her shooting and info on creating interaction with you and kids, or your own kids you are shooting. I didn't get any of that. The video shows her taking a few shots and is about 2 minutes long, but it is a voiceover and I was hoping to watch her shoot.
Am I missing something maybe in my downloads?
I also don't have a pdf of the photos in any of my downloads. Mindy on 16th Jan 2017
Watched videos ..and read a very long "intro" ... some good info .. just seemed very confusing with the downloads and such.. and then not much meat ... seemed like a lot of $$$ for not that much in return...
Sorry .. don't get me wrong .. some good tips.. was just hoping it was going to be more in depth.. would have liked to have seen more "hands on / on location shoots..and why you chose what you did ..etc...

Rachel fully covers her process starting from shooting a session, then culling and processing, so as she shows what's inside the PS action she uses. This is a great breakout for one who's just starting out his business. I wouldn't suggest it though for an intermediate level photographer. Unknown on 16th Jul 2016
Loved this breakout! Totally worth the $ Unknown on 1st Jun 2016
I purchased this product and really enjoyed the video tutorials along with the PDF files. I had some issues setting up the workflow with my current computer and software set up and Rachel reached out to me and went above and beyond in assisting me with my concerns. Now *THAT* is customer service! Thank you so much Rachel! Unknown on 17th Feb 2016
