Rachael is a one of a kind world changing, freedom fighting, life enhancing young woman. Spending any time with her will make you want to be a better person.

Right now she is volunteering at LIV in South Africa.

In their own words… “The LIV model is long term cluster foster care, where children have a sense of belonging in a supportive community, modelling an African village lifestyle. We place orphaned and vulnerable children into a family environment with a trained foster mother to love them, a school to educate them, and where they receive spiritual discipleship, care and nurturing.” Check out their website, they are a great cause to support.

Racheal also blogs about her time at LIV. Her writing is real and authentic, it’s worth reading. Rachael @ LIV

A few years ago I took a few photos of Rae, and she is stunning!

This time I wanted to do something a bit more special. I wanted to to show more of her nature and character ~ a raw portrait.

I don’t usually put words in the image but felt that in this case it added value.
