Raquel's maternity session was my first session of 2018! She is a fellow photographer and friend. She also took our announcement pictures for our third babe last year. To return the favor, she asked me to shoot her maternity pictures with her second pregnancy and I HAPPILY agreed! We chatted for a few days trying to figure out where we would shoot, what would Raquel wear, and so on. We had some trouble figuring it out and we just weren't sure what to do. Finally, I thought, why not do it where mama is most comfortable at? AT HOME OF COURSE! So we planned on a lifestyle maternity session with her, and her firstborn, Phoenix. We had a wonderful time! I got to catch a little glimpse into their life at home, as well as spend some quality time with Raquel! I love this session so much. It has such a relaxed, comfortable, homey feel to it. Raquel also brings such an elegance to being pregnant. She just makes it look so easy! Phoenix also joining us was perfect for mama's session. His bond with Raquel is so strong, and you can see it in their pictures together. So happy to see this sweet family of three grow to four!
