Rebekah // Gig Harbor Author

Meet Rebekah!!

Our October giveaway winner!!


Rebekah, our giveaway winner, selected a business portrait session! What is her business, you might ask? She is an author!! Yes, there is much more to her then meets the eye! She has published 5 books and is working on more!! Below is a little bio about her inspiration for writing. You can find Rebekah’s books at Goodreads - Rebekah_Eddy.

Rebekah grew up surrounded by family members who appreciated and read good literature. First, she fell in love with the stories her parents read aloud to her from the Bible and books like The Chronicles of Narnia, Great Expectations, The Hobbit, and Anne of Green Gables. After learning to read on her own, she discovered other fantastic books which helped to build her ever growing imagination.
She completed her first written work at the tender age of eight and now uses it to humble herself whenever the need arises. The story did serve to show her that God had given her a desire to write, however, and from that moment on Rebekah has never looked back or regretted picking up her pencil and becoming an author.
This eighteen-year-old homeschool graduate lives in rainy Western Washington and is currently working on receiving her BA in English in order to further her passion for creating worlds on paper.

When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just begins
to live that day.

I’ve known Rebekah for a number of years now, but we never got the chance to just talk. This session made it possible though! While walking around her family’s home and taking tons of photos, we talked about writing, family, likes, dislikes, and how cold it was. :) Yes, it was December and she held hand warmers and was freezing the entire time. Yet, her countenance was delightful and her smile was unwavering. Rebekah, you were a pleasure to work with!!


Road photographs are a few of my favorites and Rebekah had this beautiful road right by her home. We had so much fun, so did all the cars that passed by us, I’m sure. I will always have such fond memories of our laughter floating though the air, my little hand signals to tell her to walk or stay, her funny jokes that caused us to laugh, my little sister who was so engrossed in reading Rebekah’s books that she wouldn’t hear us call to her. #favoritemoments
