Creating and experiencing emotions has always been a beautiful gift, but being able to showcase them is a luxury that everyone should have. As an empathetic soul, I not only feel my own emotions but also pick up on those of others in the room, and I artistically portray them from the start, all the way to your final gallery, in a documentary fashion. I help all my clients feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera with action-based and emotion-provoking prompts, so you can feel and relive the moments from the day in your head.

Are you looking for photos that you can feel? ā†’

Memories fade, but photos help you remember, relive, and feel forever.

With dreams of becoming a photographer and with a camera always in hand, Light Rae Exposures was established in 2011. Fueled by a love for fashion and the art of capturing and creating beautiful moments, my goal has always been to bring out the beauty in everyone and show how the world sees them through moments frozen in time.

More often than not, we are too hard on ourselves, and it has been proven that others see us better than we see ourselves. I aspire to be the light, to show a different way, a different angle, and to look through a different lens. My background in modeling has given me the experience and insight to be the best photographer in directing my vision and getting people into flattering poses that have you saying DAMN Iā€™M HOT! Yes, you are! Believe it! With my modeling background giving me the edge & confidence to step out of the box, explore and create beautiful work using the objects around us and the beauty within you by guiding you in action based poses and demonstrating them for you. 

With Lightroom and Photoshop at my disposal, I perfect and create my art with muted tones and a wide contrast of colors to create a crisp, clean and moody, romantic style. Growing up in the 90s I have been apart of all the milestones of technology with photoshop and technologies didn't beat Adobe. In your final gallery I will remove distracting objects, fix non permanent blemishes and perfect the photo while still keeping it with a natural documentary style.

I have always had a bleeding heart for others and a desire to help those in need. I have taken the non-traditional path in everything I do in life, and while society tired to bring me to shame, I embraced it and am proud to be seen as different. I encourage others to do the same, see the beauty in themselves and in everyday life! I specialize in the non-traditional approach in my life and in my photography. It is my comfort zone after all! I started my photography journey taking creative portraits from senior, boudoir, maternity and family portraits. Which all lead me into shooting couples and their weddings, where I found my love for elopements, combining my adventurous travel enthusiasts personality with my love for celebrating and guiding my spontaneous couples on their biggest day!

I am committed to empowering the ones around me and leaving whatever I touch better than what it was before.   My goal is to empower and showcase your beauty and uniquness. I encourage you to explore my portfolio, my socials and connect! Tap into your open and creative self and let's do the damn thing and create art to cherish for a life time!  

finding beauty is what I do, are you ready to join me? ā†’
