Getting this inquiry made me so excited, because this mama has a unique name that I recognized right away. My next door neighbor had been gushing to me about her part-time nanny that her girls absolutely adored, but would be leaving them soon to have a baby. Of course, once I started talking to this mama, it turns out that she was the same nanny that was beloved by several other clients as well. After meeting her and her husband in person, there was no doubt in my mind that her little boy couldn't be luckier to have an incredible set of parents. Our first session was at Lighthouse Beach, where we took advantage of nearly every beautiful setting this location has to offer, from the beach grass to the lighthouse buildings to the stairway to the beach and more.
Maternity sessions at the beach are some of my favorite sessions - just like the tides on Lake Michigan, there is a certain ebb and flow to your emotions this late stage of pregnancy with such anticipation and joy, nervousness and excitement. I love capturing maternity photos for Chicago moms who can’t wait to meet their little ones. Booking a maternity session with Rachel Friedman Photography ensures that you are working with one of Chicago’s best maternity photographers. I invite you to contact me to learn more about maternity photography and how I can capture this fleeting stage.
