Rachel’s Final Maternity Session

The journey to becoming a parent is filled with so many real and raw emotions. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to travel with these dear friends from the day they shared the big news that they were expecting. Rachel and Stefan, you are beautiful and so is your new baby girl.  Here are some of our faves from Rach’s final maternity session; full of excitement, laughter, and over-the-top gorgeousness!


This mama-to-be was beaming and radiating love from beginning to end. These are the moments as photographers that you are freaking out because you are so in love with your subject and imagine what these images will represent for the client. Love captured.

The love between these three is palpable. The best moments are often the most simple. We adore these maternity shots in black in white; absolutely timeless. Rach kept it classic with her color palette of neutrals and a lovely pop of red here and there.

#pregnancygoals.  The ground covered in this shoot was amazing!  While there were a few hours spent in the Third Ward studio, this brave mama got up at sunrise to shoot out in the snow… on a cliff!

Silhouette shots are a must!  Having the Milwaukee skyline just out the third story window is an added bonus to this gorgeous bump.  We laughed a reminisced as we looked out the window to see the Grain Exchange; where Rach and Stefan said their “I do’s.” Perfection and serendipitous indeed.

Having fresh snow the morning of the shoot just took it over the top. The entire day of shooting was calm and sweet…just like the falling snow.
