Portraits of Rachel in Pacific Beach

“A photograph is a secret about a secret” is a famous quote from the also famous photographer Diane Arbus. Meeting Rachel is also like meeting someone who is both revealing and has such depth to her I can’t imagine how long it would take to truly know her. I always have the feeling with Rachel that I am both in on the secret and have barely scratched the surface. Rachel is one of our interns and I’ve loved every minute of getting to know her. She communicates with ease the most complex of emotions and I often find myself staring at her thinking “Who are you? You charming captivating puzzle. She is one of those people that my new age friends would say has lived many lifetimes and I hope that this lifetime falls at her feet.
Here are some of images that I just love of one of our intern shoots. I had such an awesome time mentoring Rachel and Claudia.
Cheers to unexpected delights! Suzanne
