life stories of people just like you:


One thing I find so special about photography is its ability to capture an emotion. I got into photography because I wanted to save those moments. I wanted to save the memory of that special experience: the perfect pirouette, the genuine joy of a bride, and the intense emotions after winning a game. I absolutely love being the person you turn to when you have something so special you want to document it forever.


The Photographer

HEY! I'm Rachel DesJardins

All my work is a result of places I've been and stories I've had the pleasure of capturing. I love being presented with opportunities to save stories and memories through photography. 


Beyond photographing people, I enjoy hiking and camping along the North Shore in Minnesota or settling in with a good book. My passport is always valid and I'm always saving miles for my next big trip. High on my list are Ireland, Norway, England, Spain, and I could always go back to Switzerland.

Take a peek through my site to see the memories I've captured.  Maybe yours will be one of them soon!
