Magazine Feature-Marilyn

She will charm you with her soulful tunes, laugh with you over the mundane, create cards with leftover curtain fabric and serve behind the scenes. Marilyn is a talented and resourceful friend who is a lot of fun to hang out with! I love how these images capture some of her personality and interests. It was a privilege to illustrate her article for the magazine with which I work. Her article explained a few examples from her own life in which she had the choice to choose who's advice to heed.


This gentleman suddenly appeared and posed for us so perfectly and hilariously, we thought it was rather indicative of Marilyn's NYC life!

Yes, Marilyn participated in the NYC Triathlon last year and has run other races as well. She enjoys staying healthy and dealing well with whatever challenge is before her!

When Calling and Career Connect

Don't you love when that happens? Earlier this year I got the good news that I landed a photographer position for Daughters of Promise Magazine! I was excited to have found a way to use my creativity and photography interests in a way that encourages women and illustrates stories of faith. It is a confirmation of my calling and a joy to collaborate with other women to create beautiful photos. I've already completed the shoots for the September/October issue and can't wait to show you those images once the magazine has reached readers. I'm even more excited for the upcoming holiday articles I get to illustrate, it's a lot of fun coming up with ideas, outfits and more. Thank you for choosing me, DOP!

DOP Themed Shoot-'Boldly Into the Unknown'

Last spring I (Rachel) was asked to do a photo shoot for a women's magazine called Daughters of Promise. They featured my friend, Ashadee, by including an article she wrote describing her family's journey the past several years. Ashadee's faith has become ever fiercer and her determination to praise regardless of the circumstances she finds herself in is a challenge to me! The article outlines their journey towards making it possible for her husband to become a pilot while navigating a lack of finances and small children. It's a great article and I am happy to report that her husband has now obtained his "wings" and flies commercially! I love their story and am pleased to show you some photos from the themed shoot involving aviation/travel, the city and a woman called Ashadee!
