Rachel is Luminous!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Rachel for the past two years. And she is luminous. For one thing, she has been volunteering to help children with special needs in the Therapeutic riding classes at Shadow Equestrian stables located in beautiful Monroeville, New Jersey (right in our town here at Luminous 5). She has been there for 7 years giving her time to help children with developmental delays.
Rachel is a very humorous girl. We spent a lot of time laughing during her session times. She is also a movie buff, particularly the old black and white genre. Think Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, etc. She likes the old gafaw, slap-stick movies. So I did this image in a Silver Screen look of the old skool actress head shots.
Her maturity and faith are beyond her years and she requested having portraits made in the chapel, wearing her chapel veil and while praying a rosary. We share this faith, even though there are a few years between us. At the fashion part of the shoot, Rachel did not hesitate to embrace her youth.
Rachel is graduating in a few weeks. She is going to school to study social work, again to help others.
All the best, Rachel!
