I recently got to style the beautiful Rachael Weaver of Denver’s Rachel Grace Photography for a fun and surprising (snow!) session with Meghan Valentine. Rachael has so much natural beauty and is a no fuss kind of gal, so I loved doing her hair and makeup with a neutral smoky eye and curled soft waves into her hair before putting it up into a top knot. She looked so gorgeous it took my breath away! Baby Weaver is due any day now and I can’t wait to find out what they’re having! My guess is a girl and I hope she’s born on my birthday – February 13th.
For Rachael’s first look, I restyled her baby shower outfit, adding a more ornate belt from her closet and matching boots. The second look is a wonderful tube dress by Heidi Klum from A Pea in the Pod Maternity. The wrap is from H&M and earrings from Claire’s. You can’t see her boots very well, but they are amazing Frye knock offs from Target. I have the real harness boots from Frye and they look exactly the same for only $59.99! I brought along a sweet elephant from India to place on Rachael’s bump since the Weavers have decorated their baby’s nursery with items inspired by elephants – the belly photo is going to look so cute in the baby’s room! The last look is a bright tee from A Pea in the Pod paired with Rachael’s own jeans and a sweater borrowed from my closet from the Missoni for Target collection last Spring.
Here she is… The woman all other pregnant women are jealous of…
And here comes the surprise SNOW. It was actually so wonderful because Rachael had pictured her maternity shoot surrounded by white and a light snow fall. This has been one of the driest winters I’ve seen in 35 years so we never thought it could happen. But it did.
Rachael, you’re going to such an incredible mom. Good luck and I can’t wait to hear the happy news!
