Bringing a new life into the world is always exciting for parents. Whether it’s their first child or another addition, a new baby is something to celebrate.
And one artist from Spain is helping women capture that joy in a beautiful and unique way.
Fatima Carrion Alfonso has worked as a body painter for over a decade, transforming human subjects into all kinds of incredible things, but she didn’t start working on pregnant canvases until she gave birth to her own daughter, Ainhoa, in 2015.
Since then, she’s been decorating moms-to-be with all kinds of images that capture their personalities, their wishes for their babies, and the special bond between mother and child.
Pregnancy photo shoots are all the rage, especially as more and more women are seeing pregnancy and motherhood as beautiful, empowering, and on their terms you know, how it should be! We’ve seen all kinds of crazy ideas, including expectant moms floating like magical mermaids underwater.
Check out Alfonso’s work below, and seehow these moms celebrated their pregnancies!
