Another marathon maternity session! My friend Rachel and her beautiful family of soon-to-be four met me at our favorite spot, the Columbia Children’s Arboretum. Tahmures did great this time around, especially considering we started the shoot at his bedtime! They are such a stylish family, no?
A week later, I photographed Rachel on her own, at Sauvie Island Lavender Farm, and at a rugged wildlife area. I’m still recovering from all the mosquito bites, but it was totally worth it! Rachel is such a radiant mama, and really seems to savor her pregnancies and celebrate the changes to her form. This makes sense, I suppose, since she’s a crazy talented boudoir photographer. I really can’t believe she’s only 3 weeks away from giving birth in these photos!
Rachel, Ali, and Tahmures, I am so incredibly excited to meet this little girl! May her entry into the world be blessed.
