Rachel Maternity | Wilmington, Delaware | Rehoboth Beach, Delaware | Maternity Photography

Posted on: August 30th, 2012

We met Rachel in the studio on a rainy day for a maternity session. Rachel is due in early October, and she was just under 34 weeks when we had our session. Rachel has been feeling great her whole pregnancy, and it really shows in her photos. That mommy yoga really pays off for body and mind!



From the studio we ventured to the beach, and like clockwork, the rain let up for a beautiful late summer sunset.







I am eagerly awaiting word that Rachel has had her baby! Rachel and her family will be participating in our baby book package. She’ll get 4 sittings from maternity all the way to 18 month to 2 years, and at the end I’ll make a baby book for the family of the photos we’ve taken. This is one of my favorite long-term projects, and I can’t wait to do more!

    These are incredible! It was a perfect day, and that water was so warm. I’m so glad you persisted with the beach effort despite all the naysayers who said we were going to get nothing but rain and traffic – we missed both and got beautiful photos instead. Thank you so much for all the hard work, Susan. Everyone should know it takes a dedicated photographer like you to get pictures like this. I only wish I could have made the trip a week or two later to give you a bigger belly to work with!

      Thanks, Rachel! You really can’t beat a trip to the beach at sunset for any reason, and it was especially nice to get to take some photos of you. I think your belly looks great in the photos, and if you wait too late you always run the risk of feeling bloated and not able to move around so well.
