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!

Shayla | Abbotsford Maternity Photos

I met this wonderful couple last week. After the weather postponed the first date for the session, I was almost worried that we would get rained out again. Fortunately it turned out to be perfect picture taking weather and after a few shots in their home we were able to head out to one of my very favorite locations.

And would you believe that Shayla is 38 weeks pregnant in this pictures? I can’t get over how amazing she looks, and she had the most perfect belly. I am looking forward to meeting and photographing their little on in the next few weeks!

Yes, there are a LOT of pictures below. I had so many favorites it was almost impossible to narrow it down to just a few. :)

I love the perspective of this first shot…she may not, but I could still see her feet! LOL :)

Love how lush and green the grass is right now!

(at least there’s one good thing about all the rain we’ve had this spring!)


She is stunning. That shot of them through the grass? My new all-time favorite I think. Puffy heart LOVE it.

Shayla (Mama to be) - Thanks everyone for the comments! :) What an amazing photographer Rachel is! Being a person who isn't all that comfortable getting my picture taken I was surprised at how at ease I felt with Rachel. I also wanted to comment on all of my clothing fans... I found that maternity clothing is SO expensive so I didn't buy ANY - All of tops are what I used to wear as dresses and lululemons have been my best friend! Stay tuned for newborn pictures any day now!!! ( I hope! )

amber higgins - Shay has been one of my best friends for a long time. We share so many wonderful memories and have been there for each other through many ups and downs. Before she met chris, shayla thought she would never find a good guy. I knew she was wrong about that, because she is such an intelligent, beautiful person with so much to offer. I told shayla that the right one would come around when she was least expecting it. And a trip to costa rica,where she met chris, proved me right. They fell in love, and now she is about to have a beautiful baby. I am so thankful to have you as my friend, and am excited to meet your baby and watch you grow and learn from each other. You look so beautiful in the pictures, it brings tears to my eyes. All the best to you and your handsome man! I love you !

Jackie - Beautiful, beautiful work!!
