Rachel Harder & Taylor Cooper, Crossroads Photography

on social media

Crossroads Photography is a team who believes that empowering women can change the world. Four photographers, a media intern, and several assistants make it our goal to champion the unique value and beauty of each and every woman we photograph. Specializing in seniors and families, our favorite part of what we do is watching women build confidence in front of our cameras. Our team mission statement is to help each person we photograph see their God-given beauty and value, for His glory.

Crossroads Photography began 9 years ago at a “crossroads” in Rachel’s life, where she was challenged by her older sister at a crucial moment, “If you could do anything, what would you do?” That challenge has shaped the rest of Rachel’s journey. Rachel decided to build her team after the birth of her first son because she wasn’t able to take on all the work that came her way. While visiting with Rachel’s nanny one day, they both shared that they had been praying for guidance on the next step in their journeys. That nanny, Taylor, is now the family photographer for Crossroads and a great asset to the team!

Without a studio, each team member works from home and has the flexibility to raise littles, volunteer in the community, and fit work into their own timeline. Rachel and Taylor saw the need for a photo editor so they trained Linanne, who is now shooting sessions of her own. Soon after, Amy joined the team as well.

The growth of a close-knit team such as Crossroads from the tiny seed of a dream is nothing short of a gift from God.
