Rapp was Alfred Stieglitz's secretary at his 291 Gallery, and a lifelong friend. She not only helped run the gallery but assisted with the publication of Camera Work. He photographed her many times. A close friend and confidante, she was an excellent subject, her natural grace and beauty resulting in a touching image. Rapp later married George K. Boursault, who was a member of the Photo-Secession.
