Rachel Ludwig Photography | Abbotsford Family and Child Portrait Photographer bio picture

Welcome to Rachel Ludwig Photography!

Come on in, grab a cup of coffee (or in my case, that would be a non-fat, sugar-free vanilla, earl grey tea misto) and take a browse through my site. This is where I share images from recent sessions, post updates about Rachel Ludwig Photography, and sometimes I even sneak in a few pictures of my own family.

Want to know a little bit more about me? I've been married to my husband Tim for 11 years, and we have three loud, crazy and fun kids: Ethan (7), Arden (3) and Hudson (1). I also love to take pictures. I'm a lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer based in Abbotsford, BC and I photograph a little bit of everything, including babies, bellies, families, engagements, boudoir and weddings.

Oh....and don't be shy! You can leave a comment, pop me an email or use the contact form at any time. I promise I don't bite. :) I'd love to hear from you!

Bart & Colleen and family

We went to Calgary to visit my husband’s brother, sister-in-law and their family for Canadian Thanksgiving this year, like we’ve done the previous two years. My sister-in-law happens to be an amazing chef, which is a great motivation for us to make the trek each year (and that is in addition to really enjoying their company!). Once again, we enjoyed several incredible meals and a wonderful time together. Thanks guys…you’re the best!

Each time we’ve been in Calgary I’ve been really wanting to do a photoshoot in the beautiful golden grass they have there at this time of year. So glad I finally got my chance and we got lucky with some unseasonably nice warm weather and (as the Calgarians claim, always) beautiful blue skies. I was so excited when I saw this location…the aforementioned golden grass, some haybales, and some perfectly graffited old silos. I knew it would be perfect for our PhotoSession!

For those of you who know Bart & Colleen, you might notice the addition to their family. Archie is their rambunctious, energetic, trouble-making, but oh-so-adorable Brittany Spaniel puppy. I tell ya, I thought my toddler kept me running…but I think this dog beats her hands down! :) But who can resist those sweet puppy eyes?

PS If you’re in the Calgary area and interested in a PhotoSession if/when we’re out their next, please send me an email and I’ll add you to my list!

My very last shot of the session…and as I like to call it, the Money Shot. :)


They kindly obliged me with an American Gothic pose for my collection!


This one totally melts me.


I love how this one pretty much sums up the girls’ personalities just about perfectly!



Look how handsome he is!




The graffiti R was perfect for Riley.


As was the D for Devon.


Unfortunately, the words GRAD 08 don’t happen to have L’s for Logan and Leah, but we made do.



And two more of the BFF’s :)
