The other day a client came into the studio to have her belly cast done. She was 37 weeks pregnant with her first child. She was excited and nervous on the pending arrival of her first born. As we were chatting with her about our own pregnancy experiences, I reminisced on the days when I was pregnant and carrying a big, round belly. I remembered when my babies would move around and I would freak out at first but then wait with anticipation for their arm or leg to bulge out. I have photos that captured the different stages of my growing belly but I thought how nice it would have been to have something to show the true size and shape of my body right before my beautiful babies popped out. Each pregnancy my belly looked different.
What a special and amazing keepsake to look back on over the years. To see the wonder of pregnancy and the beauty of a pregnant belly. As I sit here and write this knowing that I will never go through that stage of my life again, it’s nice to know that these special moments in time can be captured and cherished.
