Hello, and thank you for visiting my site! I'm Rachel Spaid, the owner, creator and primary photographer for Nature by Design Photography. While I am local to Gresham, Oregon, I am more than willing to travel to photograph you and your family. My serious interest in photography started in 2012, since then I have been constantly practicing, improving, and learning.
Being able to preserve memories for clients while creating a lasting friendship and connection is a wonderful feeling. My passion lies in capturing nature and people. I love photographing people and families throughout different chapters in their lives. It is very rewarding to capture images that families will love and display in their homes.
As I finish up my last year of attending college full time, spots are limited for sessions. I am a very busy lady; with not enough time to do the things I love. I still try to find time to enjoy painting, crocheting, designing and creating metal jewelry/rings, traveling, hiking, and more hiking.
