the beauty of motherhood

As a Modesto Maternity Photographer, I love capturing motherhood in all its perfect beauty so that when their child gets older, their mother can show them how she carried them inside her when the photo was taken.  As a mother, I often do not want to be the one who is in the photograph.  But think about how you LOVE to look at photographs of you as a child WITH your mother.  It’s a moment in time that you will remember those little kicks that only you know the true feeling of.  So set your fears aside and capture this moment in time for you to be able to share those memories with your children.  I truly believe that motherhood is one of the truest forms of beauty.

Below you will find a gallery showcasing images from Modesto maternity photographer sessions with Rachael Venema Photography.

Modesto Maternity Photographer

As a Certified Professional Photographer and mother of three myself, I know how much planning you’re likely doing right now as an expecting mom. I love creating and sharing resources to help you during your pregnancy to make it easier for you. In fact, I have a guide with 9 must-haves for your baby registry right here for you. I also love supporting moms long after the session with resources on my blog and social media, such as this article with tips on self-care for hard-working moms in Northern California. 

Many of my maternity photography clients ask me when they should book their newborn photography sessions as well. The answer is – as soon as possible! Being able to capture your maternity and newborn photos is such an honor and a privilege to me. Booking your maternity and newborn sessions at the same time means you know that it’s all taken care of and handled for you.
