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!

Jen & Andrew and boys

I met Jen several years back through scrapbooking at the very first ‘crop’ I attended, which was probably five years ago (has it really been that long??) and I remember being in awe of her scrapbook pages, and the amazing details she included (especially the sewing on her pages!). We kind of lost touch over the years, and then Jen and I recently met again through Facebook, and I was thrilled to hear that she had met a wonderful man and had gotten engaged.

I was thrilled when Jen asked me to do an engagement/family session. It was a pleasure to spend an afternoon together, and seeing this new family of four being together just made me so very happy. Nothing quite like witnessing the happy end to a story, right? A big congrats to all four of you on this exciting new phase in your life!

One of my favorite parts about this session is that they are all avid photographers and all four of them have their own cameras. And the fact that they are die-hard Canon owners like me was icing on the cake. I tell you, their camera bag almost rivaled my own! :)

Jen and her handsome dudes (Mikah was still warming up to me after a nap in the car…I love how he’s peeking at my somewhat suspiciously here!)

Feisal is a pro with his camera! He was using all sorts of different angles, and loved posing everyone. A boy after my own heart :)

Andrew brought his camera along too, and we had fun incorporating the paparazzi into the session :) ha. Just kidding!


Jen has the BEST smile/laugh. I was able to capture a few shots with it, and they are some of my faves from the session. I can’t help but smile just looking at this!

Feisal knew exactly what he wanted from this shot (told ya he was a pro!)

Andrew knows all the tricks to get Jen grinning from ear to ear…he’s definitely a keeper! :)


One of my faves….love the texture from the concrete.


Mikah showing off a little bling.

And who can resist adorable alligator (or is it dinosaur?) boots on the wrong feet? So darn cute!

These two are one good looking couple!


And a storyboard with a little hide-n-seek going on:

Nancy L - Absolutely beautiful! I agree with Jill, your talent and skill shine through. I am so glad that Jen is able to smile, laugh again and has found herself a wonderful man for herself and the children. Great work in capturing a special moment in their lives!!!

Jill Beamer - also wanted to add - that it seems *strange* that a few years ago I was taking pics of E for *you* - you have long surpassed my skills!

Jill Beamer - RACHEL!!!! You have come sooo far! these are amazing shots - and you DO have a GREAT EYE for angles and composition!!! really enjoyed looking at these shots of Jen and her 'family'!!!

Trina - Hi Rachel-- I LOVE your photos! Great contrast in the B & W's and amazing color in the others. You have a great eye! As a budding photographer, I have a couple questions if you don't mind me asking? Which lenses do you use most frequently when doing photo shoots? I am a Canon girl myself! What do you use for the black background in your baby photos (I am shooting a friends newborn next month and could use a couple hints about backgrounds!) Do you use Photoshop to convert your images and do your post-processing? Which version do you use? Thanks so much! I will continue to check in to see more of your amazing work! Thanks so much for sharing! Trina
