Rachel’s Maternity Portraits

Rachel is one of the best people I know.

So when she found out she was expecting, and asked me to take her
maternity pictures, I was thrilled.

We had discussed locations, and while we talked about some with water,
ultimately we used my backyard, because well, it’s so very, very scenic. We also
knew we had to take some with her puppies, Charley and Annie, because they were
part of the family. With the sunset later in the day, we were able to get the
dogs photographed before they got bored. Of course, we had also had to be sure to get the full family in the photo!

Leading up to the session, Rachel and I had been discussing how much we
loved the new Kacey Musgraves album, so I couldn’t resist the chance to sneak
in some fun rainbows.

The one photograph pose Rachel really wanted was a parallel to one gorgeous
image from her wedding day that featured her and her husband holding hands. I
made sure to have the image on my phone for reference, and we did our own
interpretation of it.

All in all, it was a beautiful, relaxed session.
