I planned this maternity shoot last winter and couldn’t believe how fast 30 weeks came for Rachael. Although, I wasn’t the one who was pregnant and I’m sure if you asked her, it probably felt like all of 30 weeks. We had a beautiful June day but like just about every day this summer, it was a hot one. Talk about feeling like a real jerk asking a very pregnant Rachael tromp around Washington Park in the heat but like always, she was a very patient and kind. Rachael personified that glowing, smiling mom-to-be that we all think about when we think of pregnancy. She was beautiful, and you couldn’t help but be very excited for her as she edged closer to her mid- summer due date. I am happy to report that Rachael gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy, Jacob Frank on July 25th and I couldn’t be happier for her and her husband Jason. Congratulations! I can’t wait to meet him and visit with you again.
