A few weeks ago my friend Rachel asked me if I wanted to do a maternity photo shoot with her in the city. Some of you may remember Rachel as a blogger. She doesn’t really blog anymore, but if you weren’t aware she’s an AMAZING photographer – so good that she was able to leave her job to pursue her career in photography full time! Anyway, we found a date that worked for both of us, and this past Sunday Dave and I met Rachel and her friend Kiesha in the city to roam around and take pictures. And lucky for us the weather was gorgeous!! Here are some of my favorite shots:
We were ALL over the city – Rachel had the blisters and I had the sore back to prove it! But it was so much fun. While I love Rachel as a friend, it was great to get to know her as a photographer, and see her work. She’s great! I was already at ease since I know her, but nothing ever felt awkward. I don’t think I’m a good picture taker, and I never felt weird or like anything I was doing in front of the camera was forced. That to me is the earmark of a great photographer. And I think the pictures definitely prove it. I can’t wait for her to come back and shoot us with Sadie once she’s here!!!
