“Pot bellies make a man look either oafish, or like a gorilla. But on a woman, a pot belly is very sexy. The rest of you is normal. Normal face, normal legs, normal hips, normal ass, but with a big, perfectly round pot belly. If I had one, I’d wear a tee-shirt two sizes too small to accentuate it.”
Do you remember this quote from Pulp Fiction? Although I haven’t experienced it myself, pregnancy (and growing a tiny human being) for me is definitely on the list of most amazing experiences one can have in their life. I also think a pregnant body is just beautiful and I love to photograph it.
You might not think about it or you might be unsure about it right now, but those nine months will be gone really fast and if you don’t get a photography session now, you will miss out on the chance to create some precious memories with your noticeable, round baby belly. Photos can help you re-live not only how you looked, but also trigger memories, feelings, emotions… And the photographs are not only for you. Your kids will love to have images of you while they were still growing inside your tummy.
The good thing – you already have the ‘pregnant glow’, you are simply radiant. You shouldn’t worry about your size or your figure, a pregnant belly is beautifully round and there to show off. And you can show as much or as little skin as you want, a creative photographer will have a lot of ideas on how to make your shoot relaxing and fun and everything else you want it to be. You can do classy lingerie, artistic nude, very informal outdoors lifestyle or more classic and timeless studio…
I also recommend to get the expecting father or older siblings involved. This session is not only great to boost your confidence in your femininity, but also a perfect opportunity to celebrate your relationships. You spend every minute with the baby, experience the first flutters of movements, the kicks, the hiccups, but the future dads can feel a little left out. Getting them into the pictures makes your photo session even more special and definitely part of your family history.
