Artist behind the Camera

 

My name is Racheal Pulver, photographer and owner of Rae of Light Photography. One of my nicknames, besides Rach, is Rae, hence the name Rae of Light Photography was born. I am originally from Mertzon, Texas, but now reside in Round Rock, a suburb of Austin Texas.   I am married and have 3 energetic children ages 9,  7  and 6 years of age.  You’ll see them on the blog quite often. It is never a dull moment with these 3 around, and with my camera in hand, I often catch some memorable moments that I have to share.

 I’m a county girl at heart & grew up on my family’s ranch in a small town of less than 1200 people.    I attended a high school that was built in 1909, not many people can say that these days.   I had all of 28 people in my graduating class. :)    Needless to say, everyone knew EVERYTHING about everyone else.     Not many secrets in a small town….. but I wouldn’t  change a thing; it was a great way to grow up.  Everyone knows your name and no one locked their doors at night.

Besides photography, I love to cook, play guitar, and digital scrapbook.  I already have 13 scrapbook albums and at this rate, I will need an extra room in my house to hold all my books by the time my kids are grown.    I graduated Southwest Texas University (now Texas State) with a bachelors degree in Exercise Sports Science.    Once an avid track and field athlete, I now enjoy a simple jog  or hike in the park with my kids.

I am a memeber of the Texas Professional Photoghers Association ( since 2008) and also the Austin Professional Photographers Association (since 2009).   I became a volunteer photographer with the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Organization back in 2008 and have felt so blessed to be able to help families who are grieving the loss of a baby.     I have also been recognized locally by the Round Rock Area Art Council for several of my photographic works entitled: Childhood Days Gone By, Reading Rainbow, Ovum, and End of Day Embrace.   Through out the past few years, I have attended photography workshops & seminars as well as countless hours of on-line education and training  to keep on top of all the latest photography techniques and trends.    I’m always striving to be the best photographer that I can.  You never stop learning with photography & I love that!

I LOVE your photography! I was wondering what lens you use most often? Which lens did you use for the elf/guitar pictures? The lighting in your pictures is just amazing! Thank you, Renee.

Hey Renee! Thanks for the compliments. My “go to” lens is my 50mm, 1.2. I shoot all Canon equipment and love it.
