Rebecca grew up traveling to Europe to visit her immigrant mother's family, and while reading fashion magazines for hours on the plane she fell in love with the artistry and drama of fashion photography. As she shot various subjects for more than 7 years, she found her love of menswear and streetwear because of its raw, gritty, and documentary beauty.
One of the reasons she was drawn to fashion was to finally put an end the all-too-normalized creepy old man shooting a skinny blonde girl, and no matter what she shoots she firmly stands against any kind of sexism, racism, fetishizing, and shaming of any kind for body image, size, history, or gender—no matter the level of offense. She believes that inaction is choosing to partake in a broken industry and is also passionate about ending fast fashion for good, not just as long as it's trendy but especially when it is not. Each person carries the image of God in them, and deserves honor and dignity no matter what.
"Sieger!" (the German word for champion) references her German Opa, who was her closest grandparent. While he was known for his fierce competitive nature & his victory cry "Sieger!" over every competition, his reputation as the charming, mischievous, & personable man down the street made him everyone's best friend. On the other side, Rebecca shares a middle name with her grandmother Blanche Rose, who passed before her birth. She was never able to meet Blanche personally, but loved poring through albums filled with yellowed photographs and scribbles in her diary.
