Rachel’s casual interview with Janna Lopez, the editor of Portland Family Magazine. (Not-so-flattering still… but the interview is casual and cute.)
I’m getting good at these
Book a double session for maternity boudoir- and get the followup mama baby portraits too…

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.
Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.
It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

A new offering – mama baby boudoir! Sounds weird, but it’s awesome. New mamas come in with their babies and get intimate, lovely portraits in the gorgeous natural light. I AM NOT A BABY PHOTOGRAPHER though… this is more about the mom than the kid. This is paired with a maternity boudoir session with the baby bump in month 8 or 9 of the pregnancy.
I’ll be out on personal leave from March 15 – May 1. Although I am not accepting portrait commissions during that time, feel free to contact me to set up a shoot in May. I won’t be on email regularly but I will be checking in every week or so.♥

I love the transition from “this is one of the scariest things I have ever done” to “THAT WAS FUN!”
“I am about to embark on one of the most terrifying experiences of my life – a boudoir photoshoot… I’m so scared I have no idea why I really agreed to this in the first place. Who knew half-naked photos could induce such terror?” -2/10/12 at 8am
“The photo shoot turned out to be FUN. Rachel is amazing at making you feel safe – even when barely clothed. I danced, tossed my hair, and channeled my inner Victoria’s Secret model. Wowza. I didn’t know I had it in me. It was the experience of a lifetime. I totally recommend getting a boudoir photoshoot with Rachel.” -2/10/12 at 1pm
Also… her friend’s advice is super funny. “Bust of luck!” heehee
