I’m so happy you all get to meet my mentee’s from the.MENTOR.sessions these next few weeks!  I’ve had an amazing journey with each of them already.  Seeing them grow and learn not only as a photographer but as a person!  I’m thrilled to introduce Rachel from south Louisiana!  A few of her most recent goals as we’ve been developing her business is to have a professional website and blog!  She is making so much progress in such a short period of time!  I’m so excited to see where her success take  and lead her!

Connect with her business on facebook: Rachel Clesi Photography leave her some love and encouragement!


I am a wife, mother of two dogs, thrift store shopping, fun spirited, passionate, overly organized, sweet tea loving, Who Dat cheering, southern gal.

I was given my first camera before college and of course had no clue how to operate it! I began taking pictures for my own memories and family. It wasn’t until I asked my friend if I could take a few pictures of her that I truly realized I was totally into photography! I found myself wanting to take more and more pictures! While struggling with finding the right path for myself and after many college major changes I decided to focus on photography full time and the rest is history, well not quite! One of my other passions in life is teaching, so while I am building my business I am a two year old teacher at a local preschool here in town.

I was beyond thrilled when Erin posted that she would be offering another Mentor Program. I felt like I was being called to pursue this path in life and who better to teach me that one of favorite photographers! The mentor sessions have truly pushed me to take a look at myself and my business, each session has encouraged me to think outside of box. I love that I am learning new things each week to better myself as a photographer and a business woman. I am so excited for the future, I can’t wait to see where my business will be in a month, a year, and in the far future!


  • bethlyn leonard - Hi,

    I am 16 weeks pregnant and was hoping to get some information on a maternity session. How long, how much and what is included in the session. Do you do Saturday and Sunday sessions? When is a good time to schedule a maternity session?
