I wanted her to capture this season of our life on our land and in our historic home. We’ve worked to create a space that fills our bedroom with light so I can photograph our family there but it worked out great to have Rachel there as well. This season was full of great expectation and longing and I wanted photographs to capture that! I knew I wanted to be a mother in theory but when it came down to it, I was nervous to become a mother. We did not get pregnant easily or quickly so we had to work for this, and at times I was unsure if I would really rise to the occasion. I’m a bit of an older mother from my peer group and have spent years following my bliss, traveling, and adventuring. I knew motherhood might change that. But, as soon as Frances Pendleton came, I knew the bliss and adventure would continue, just in a new, fuller way. I love being a mother, caring for this person, hoping she will become all she is intended to be – and talking to her! We are building a friendship and she is certainly the apple of my eye.” Mary, Expectant MotherMaternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0002 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0003

 

“I couldn’t have been more excited for Mary and Wade to be expecting their baby girl. Mary is an amazing photographer, free spirit and just one of those people who fills the room with light when she walks in. She carried this pregnancy with grace and joy, as I knew she would. I just couldn’t wait to see her as a mother. Her daughter’s childhood will be inspiring and so full of life. Mary was actually my wedding photographer six years ago and we’ve been such good friends since. These were taken in their beautiful home in the Shenandoah Valley. Their farm is picturesque, surrounded by the beautiful mountains.” Rachel, PhotographerMaternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0004 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0005 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0006 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0007 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0008 Maternity Photography by Rachel Wells and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0009

    Stunning. And a beautiful story of hope, too.
