Who's the girl behind the lens you ask? My name is Rachel Horst and this is my little dream come true. Photography started as a hobby for me and in 2016 became a fun side gig. Now, it's my full time job (my boss is pretty cool)! I'm married to my high school sweetheart and have two amazing teenage boys. I'm a natural light photographer who is always chasing that golden hour glow. I pride myself in giving you the best experience that tells your story by capturing unique images you will hold onto forever. All of this, plus a whole lotta sarcasm thrown in, cause that's how I roll.
There is one place for me that just can't be beat. New York City. There's nothing like the energy, the lights, the excitement of what dreams may become realities. NYC holds a special place in my heart during part of my "former life" as an aspiring ballerina. Lots of hours were spent at auditions and classes, with blood sweat and tears, dreaming in this city. It will forever be my town. This brings me to the reason why I love to photograph seniors. I get how hard they work, how passionate they are about their futures and I want nothing more than to show this in their images. Bringing that emotion to life is what it's all about.
One of my other passions is for interior design...big time Joanna Gaines fan here! I am incredibly fortunate enough to work with several companies, applying my photography skills to their finished remodels, new builds and real estate listings which also helps to fuel my love of all the latest and greatest in design and style. It may be the reason why my own home is constantly changing but...a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
Time goes by fast...enjoy every second. Has anyone ever said that to you? I used to shrug that off but as I get older, and my boys are growing, well, you know, reality. It's one of the truest statements I know. Life is a crazy journey . Before you know it, time has moved on and what you'll have left are the memories. Photographs are an amazing way to document your journey and all the steps that made you and your family, you! I want to help you capture all the moments and save them forever.
This is your time to shine! Let's tell your story and make it as unique as you. What are your passions, your dreams, your favorite places? The options are endless.

Hosh Posh Photography is the best! So much thought was put into the most beautiful, unique locations for my daughter's senior photos. Thanks so much for everything. You amazed us with your talent!
Rachel is one of the best photographers ever. She has taken my work photos. Fantastic. She has taken my kid's photos. Fantastic. She makes everyone feel at ease as she is photographing and manages to capture the most incredible shots.
Our pictures from Stone Harbor beach were absolutely fantastic! I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments I've received. Stunning work Rachel, you were awesome to work with and we can't thank you enough!
