I have not looked at these videos with Daphne for years. It’s amazing that we ever got anything done lol. This was her normal when she was over or we were together. She was so full of life and energy. I loved her like no other, you can easily see why. I hope you enjoy this glimpse of what I saw every time I was around this beautiful angel. Rest in peace Daphne Marcum. November 23, 1993 – March 21, 2023
Daphne Marcum. What can I say. She was a beautiful girl and a beautiful friend. We met after I reached out to her on Facebook. I saw a photo of her just standing at a balcony looking over the the city. She came over for a shoot two days later and we were instant friends.
Daphne would show up to my home studio sometimes several times a week. We had several adventures together and she loved our trips to the beach. We did a 5 am photoshoot in Michigan City which was cold and foggy. We decided to leave and head back to the studio when we came across some parked railroad cars and we quickly did a very random nude series on the train.
That’s how things were with Daphne, everything moved like lightning and if you didn’t keep up, you were in her dust. I loved our random adventures as well as our time watching How I met Your Mother on Netflix. of as Daphne called it “HIMYM”.
Daphne and me lost touch a few years ago and she eventually moved away from Chicago to pursue her life and passions. I still think of Daphne and our time together as friends.
The universe took away from us the most beautiful soul I have ever met and it’s highly unlikely that anyone will make me smile like Daphne did.
I’m heartbroken and always held out hope that we would meet again. Sadly those dreams are gone with Daphne’s passing.
I’m not sure how I will do it, but I will memorialize Daphne in a way I know she would love. Daphne was very much involved in choosing the photos I shared. We sometimes had different opinions on images as I loved all of them and she would say “Meh” on some of my choices.
Daphne Marie Marcum. You will always have a place in my heart and I will never forget you. Im sorry our lives drifter apart. I loved you and I know you loved me too.
On our very last adventure together, I asked you why you asked me to the beach. You said. “Because I love you and you are my friend”
That was the last time I saw you.
Rest In Peace Daphne.
