My beautiful best friend is due with her first baby at the end of October. When she asked me to do maternity portraits I was so honored! You might recognize Rachel & Spencer from their pregnancy announcement post back in May. Back then they didn’t know the gender yet, but we just so happened to get some photos with pink petals falling…well it turns out it’s a girl! How is that for foreshadowing? I am so excited for Rachel and Spencer to become parents. I know they will both do an amazing job at it!
Rachel said she wanted to do photos on the beach, which is definitely fitting since they live in Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and spend more time on the beach than anyone else I know! I suggested Fort Stroy because it is one of my favorite beaches in Virginia Beach. Between the two lighthouses, the beautiful dunes and the rocks, the backdrops are so gorgeous. You can also see the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from the beach which is the link between Virginia Beach and the Eastern Shore.
The evening of Rachel’s maternity portraits we had absolutely perfect weather! It was cool enough that we weren’t dripping sweat (especially helpful when you’re pregnant!) and it was the first clear day all week, so we lucked out. I had such a hard time narrowing down some favorites. Rachel is so beautiful and is truly glowing! Here is a look at Rachel and Spencer’s Fort Story maternity portraits.
