Tricia, in the Pearl

Portland street style

I tried to do this photo in the style of brilliant Portland photographer Lisa Warninger’s work on Urban Weeds. (isn’t that a great name for a street style photo blog?)

maternity portraits portland

This weekend I had my first official Portland artisan portrait commission! I did some fashionable maternity portraits with Tricia around her place in the Pearl District. We shot for more than two hours, and she was still going strong. Doing yoga to full term will do that for you, I guess!

Portrait Swap | Megan | Jamaica Plain, MA

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I’ve been into portrait swaps lately, because photographers often don’t have enough quality photos of themselves and their families. Megan of Perspectives Photography asked me to help document her pregnancy, and so we agreed to do a sort of hip urban maternity session. We met up at Hi-Lo Foods in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts and utilized their colorful murals and aisles for some shots. Then we walked around the surrounding few blocks for some more street shots.

I love doing maternity portraits. I think pregnant women are so beautiful!

BUMP

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

So, I have had this idea for a long time, and only recently been able to execute it.

Heather, who is due on July 31, was an excellent model and didn’t flinch when I brought her to the area of crazy construction just outside Boston where I had scouted my signs — she even suggested that she’d be happy to sit on the curb near the traffic for this shot. Noted: it is surprisingly awkward to pose a very pregnant woman with a large orange sign next to a busy highway.

And the photo below is dedicated to Rima. It is one of the bizarre disembodied baby heads, a bronze installation (Antonio López García’s El dia y la noche) outside Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts near where we live. This makes me laugh a lot – both at the fact that Heather was all for traveling to get this shot after I told her it was just for a joke, and at the fact that these disembodied baby heads exist.

On a serious note, my wedding clients all have the benefit of complimentary maternity and newborn sessions with me. I’ll be launching a more formal BUMP site eventually, but right now I’m just trying to get our Boston boudoir photography site off the ground.

I am looking for someone in Boston who is very pregnant and showing (7-8.5 months) for a quick shoot near the MFA area. Please email me at rachel@mergeweddings.com if that’s you!
