San Diego Wedding and Film Lifestyle Photography by Acres of Hope Photography » San Diego Wedding, Lifestyle & Boudoir Photography

I had the great privilege of photographing baby boy Hudson a few weeks ago. I feel so lucky when clients hire me again and again to document the biggest moments in their lives. Hannah and Mike – big congratulations on your recent life-changing addition. He is such a handsome little guy!

Introducing little Troy… he was such an angel for our shoot together a few weeks ago! He’s got handfuls of hair, the most intriguing blue eyes and two parents that love him very much. Congratulations Taylor and Ryan!

Where do I begin with this wonderful wedding of two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet?! Lindsay and Todd were married at Bates Nut Farm several weekends ago on a gorgeous summer day! Lindsay was bursting at the seams with joy and excitement to marry her sweetheart, and Todd was so giddy himself. Not only was their wedding celebration full of beautiful details like the prettiest blooms and lovely signage that Lindsay designed and created herself, but their day was also centered around God who brought these two together. Congratulations, Lindsay and Todd! We are so excited for you and the adventure that God has in store for you as a husband-and-wife team!

Images photographed with a Contax 645 on Kodak Portra 400 and a Nikon D3.

My darling baby boy is 9 months old… 3/4 of a year! I know I say this every single time I write a blog post about him, but seriously he is more and more fun every month. Let’s see… he is now crawling at lightning speed and can go up and down all of the stairs in our house! We have not done any babyproofing yet and he is determined to find out what is hiding behind every cupboard door in the house. He is getting so strong and is pretty close to standing up by himself. The kid is doing some serious eating and growing right now – he eats at least four meals a day and is still nursing about five times per day! I can’t believe how much he can pack away in that little stomach. On a daily basis he’ll eat raw greek yogurt, banana, kefir, raw cheese, seasonal fruit like peaches and pears, avocado, raw cottage cheese, liverwurst, chicken sausage, peas and carrots – holy moly! The guy loves his food. :)

He’s been discovering music and dance lately too – when I put music on at home he’ll start swaying and smiling, and even clapped for the first time the other day. He’s got four teeth poking through now, and is weighing in at about 22 lbs and wearing mostly 12 and 18-mo clothes. This Sunday we are heading north to spend a week in Yosemite, then I’ll come home to photograph my dear friend Minet’s wedding, and then Colt and I will fly back up to Nor Cal to meet Deven. From that point we’ll spend four weeks road-tripping through Oregon and Washington and then back down through California. We are so excited! We’ve been tirelessly preparing our truck and little truck camper for the long haul. I’m doing a few shoots along the way, but I’m mostly excited to slow down, get away from my desk and the everyday routine and do some serious exploring with my two favorite guys.

  • Rachel - Your photos are such an inspiration. And your little boy is the cutest. I have followed your blog for awhile now, I love looking through your pictures and seeing all the detail in them. They are all so natural looking and really show the people in them being themselves. I live in TN and really wish photographers here had your attitude and approach to taking pictures. (that’s why I take my own). Also, I have a very independent, smart 2 year old and we never baby proofed a thing, she gets in the cabinets and explores as she pleases. That’s how they learn. So you are doing a wonderful job as a mother & photographer. Thank you.ReplyCancel
