Learn about Rocheal

My friends would call me passionate and grounded. My husband would call me emotional. Before I documented love stories for a living, I was a public school teacher. I graduated with a dual degree for both general education and special education, and I later earned my certification for gifted education. I'm definitely a teacher at heart, but my soul craves autonomy and creativity. I also have a burning desire to help people see their potential and make the world a happier, more loving home.

My childhood was what fueled my passions... My parents divorced when I was about 2 years old. My dad lived in Georgia, but I grew up mostly in Bradenton, Florida with my mom. Florida was awesome... I remember getting super excited during Hurricane Season because we'd be able to go down to the seawall at the edge of our neighborhood and raft in the streets. The waves crashing over the seawall were epic, and I remember once seeing someone's grand piano floating in their living room as we rafted by their house.

Other parts weren't so awesome; my dad was an abusive alcoholic and my mom was addicted to pain pills. Living with a single mom who had a deep drug addiction shaped my soul into the driven generator it is today. I feel like I have a unique perspective on life. I know what it's like to be poor, living in the hood, and watching people I love get mixed up with the wrong crowd. I know what it's like to feel alone in a world full of people, and not know when it's safe to leave my room. I also know what it's like to hold stedfast onto my own beliefs, and watch them shatter around me. All for the better. My childhood humbled me, taught me the importance of Faith, and has leveled an understanding in my soul that nothing is more important than love.

As I experience the incredible support of my precious friends and family, and as my clients bless my business with the opportunity to grow and transform, I feel like I'm sinking more wholly into my purpose. My ultimate goal for my business is to watch it whisk love and positivity into the air around us all, making each of us more aware of how important we are.

I love photography because it allows me to hold onto a perspective I might have otherwise completely missed.

I'm definitely a teacher at heart, but my soul craves autonomy and creativity. I also have a burning desire to help people see their potential and make the world a happier, more loving home.

My childhood was what fueled my passions... My parents divorced when I was about 2 years old. My dad lived in Georgia, but I grew up mostly in Bradenton, Florida with my mom. Florida was awesome... I remember getting super excited during Hurricane Season because we'd be able to go down to the seawall at the edge of our neighborhood and raft in the streets. The waves crashing over the seawall were epic, and I remember once seeing someone's grand piano floating in their living room as we rafted by their house.


Other parts weren't so awesome; my dad was an abusive alcoholic and my mom was addicted to pain pills. Living with a single mom who had a deep drug addiction shaped my soul into the driven generator it is today. I feel like I have a unique perspective on life. I know what it's like to be poor, living in the hood, and watching people I love get mixed up with the wrong crowd. I know what it's like to feel alone in a world full of people, and not know when it's safe to leave my room. I also know what it's like to hold stedfast onto my own beliefs, and watch them shatter around me. All for the better. My childhood humbled me, taught me the importance of Faith, and has leveled an understanding in my soul that nothing is more important than love.

As I experience the incredible support of my precious friends and family, and as my clients bless my business with the opportunity to grow and transform, I feel like I'm sinking more wholly into my purpose. My ultimate goal for my business is to watch it whisk love and positivity into the air around us all, making each of us more aware of how important we are. 

And celebrate alongside strangers who sometimes become my friends.

My friends would call me passionate and grounded. My husband would call me emotional. Before I documented love stories for a living, I was a public school teacher. I graduated with a dual degree for both general education and special education, and I later earned my certification for gifted education. I'm definitely a teacher at heart, but my soul craves autonomy and creativity. I also have a burning desire to help people see their potential and make the world a happier, more loving home.

Meet the crew

There's only one thing

Meet the crew

I don't know what I did to deserve the family I have today... They're the smartest, most loyal people I've ever developed a relationship with and I'm lucky enough to be sharing a roof with them. A whole life.

Kellen, my 12 year old, is one of the wisest souls I've ever encountered, and somehow I've been given the job to raise him. William, his 3 year old brother, is so full of content and has the most confident aura I've seen in a child. I get that I'm biased... But my goodness... These people are my everything.

Sometimes I catch myself wishing time would hurry up so I can stop being responsible for these tiny humans, So my husband and I can enjoy some quiet time together. But then something grips ahold of me and reminds me of how preciously finite this time is. And suddenly I cannot get enough of it.

and that's who we spend it on

more precious than our time

Back

--Leo Christopher

In 2017, shortly before I took my business full-time, I decided to pull Kellen out of public school and homeschool him. It was a decision I felt was right in the deepest of my soul, but also a decision my husband and I questioned daily. (Hourly??)

That one decision has turned out to be an excellent choice. Our entire family has grown closer, and Kellen is on such a better path.

I always wanted a life like this, but I thought it was an intangible dream. I don't know where my business will take me in this life, but I hope it gives me an opportunity to reach people and make the world a better place. I hope I can inspire people to believe they're capable of achieving goals, worthy of love, and deserve to find faith.

a few more things you should know: 

In the mornings we're crowded around the table pigging out on cheese eggs and avocados. Afternoons bring field trips or noses in books. In the evening, my husband is finally home, and we all get to hang out.

This is my family

I. Love. Every. Single. One. Of. Them.
Getting to know... Really know my couples has been life-changing. I've gained a whole perspective-shifting appreciation for humans... Everyone has such a unique family and delivers such a precious story that it makes my "job" insanely interesting.
I love it.

These are my clients

Sometimes it feels too good to be true... Don't get me wrong, there are extra hard days and it's NOT perfect, but... wow.
I get up every morning around 4:45, jog with my dog, and get most of my emails, wedding day timelines, and social media done by the time the kids wake up. Then we hit the homeschool books, or play, or just randomly decide to goof off and not be productive. Every evening my husband comes home and we chill on the back deck with IPAs in hand... It's pretty cool. But also sometimes boring. :)

This is my life

nothing is impossible.

 I believe

Have you ever stopped to look at the miraculous world around you?
The world itself is a miracle.
Life is easier than we make it. Nothing is impossible.

the beach nourishes every soul.

Salty air, endless ocean, and sandy beaches nourish the body.
I think it's because we're so aligned with nature...

 I believe

nature
is
healing

I mean, we all know dirt helps balance our body chemistry, but it's like I can *feel* the peace settling in me when I'm in nature.
