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!

Beachem Family | San Diego Family Session

My family and I took a trip down to California last December, hoping to find some warm sunny weather and hit some of the California ‘hot spots’ like Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, Joshua Tree National Park, etc. We had a wonderful three week trip and while it wasn’t as warm and sunny as we hoped, we had an amazing time and created lots of special family memories.

One of the highlights of the trip, was that I finally met one of my online photography friends in person. Alison is an incredible photographer, and one that I look up to.  Not only is she amazing behind the camera, she also happens to be one of the sweetest and kindest person I know who is always willing to lend a hand and share her knowledge and expertise (she was so helpful in planning our trip too!). She creates the most amazing lifestyle family images, and her teen work is phenomenal. Be sure to check out her blog to see her most recent work…if you live in the San Diego area or are visiting, you need to be in front of her camera! She took the most AMAZING pictures of our little family of five, and I can’t even put into words how much I love them. They capture us so perfectly, and tell our story. They are priceless to me…I can’t wait to print and hang them all over my home!

Anyways…enough gushing from me :) After the amazing images she captured for us, I’m almost embarrassed to share these. Not only is my sneak peek long overdue, I struggled with this session. Unfamiliar locations, different light, and being severely intimidated after an amazing session by Alison made me super stressed! That said, I hope I was able to capture a little slice of your sweet family Alison. I loved meeting your boys…Joe was so calm and laid-back and I loved seeing the two of you together :) . The ‘big boys’ are such great big brothers. I sure hope that my boys grow up to be nice young men like them! (ok, I know that saying ‘nice young men’ makes me seem reeeeeaaaallly old. but it really is a good descriptor for them! haha). Tucker was such a good sport, Dallon cracked me up and I sure wish I had some of Slater’s energy..he kept me on my toes!

On to the pics. We first spent some time at a local park and then headed to the beach as the sun was setting. I really loved that the trees all had leaves on them in December! Such a treat for us from the Pacific NorthWest where our trees are bare from October-ish to March or April. :)

Karin - These are fabulous Rachel! I love how natural and easy they look. Just hanging out.

Audrey - Rachel you did a fabulous job! They are really great!

Alison - Rachel! Love them. You are so sweet to say those nice things. And seriously, best pictures of the 'big boys' in a long long time. Love the interactive ones and that and the ones with Slater's hands over his face, so stinking cute. And the leg one is super cute and I look skinny there so that's good too:)
