Wow thanks so much for the DD :iconnyx-valentine::hug: Thanks also for all the favs and comments everyone - had some downright nasty and some inappropriate comments, but I guess it comes with getting a DD. I have however had an overall wonderful reception to this photo and for this I thank you all. Hatred and trolls won't be tolerated. I'll try to get to everyone but I have a looming print deadline so will be very busy with that for the next bit. :D

Another from this series, too bad she wants to remain anon. - her smile is incredible :D


Only two caveats:

This is my art, it is not to be used for any other purpose than appreciation. Don't steal it, and post it on some other site or heaven-forbid try to use it for financial gain. I have God on my side and you'll feel his justice, not mine, when I find you.

Respect the model, she bared her skin and put her heart into this photo to help put something beautiful into the world.

I agree completely - I have often been known to say that pregnancy turns a woman into a 'woman' ;) Cheers!

I'm guessing that she is with child. I have seen many photos in which women pose nude while pregnant. This is one though....this one is gorgeous. she is radiant.

You would be correct ;) She was a couple of weeks or a week before her due-date when I shot this. Thanks so much for the compliment - indeed she radiates her femininity very well here and in the other shots of her. Cheers!

:thumbsup: :D - my wife and I usually shoot a model together, we take turns with the camera and our own visions as well as assisting one another with reflectors etc. She wanted to do a shower sequence and I wanted to do an 'after-bath' one. I am very pleased how it turned out :D

Wonderful photo! It's great seeing a woman being so comfortable with her own body even while going through the changes of pregnancy. Taking photos at such a time can be very empowering. She's very beautiful, and has an incredible smile. :)

Her smile - as I've previously said was amazing, which is why I'm sad that there are a bunch pf great shots I can't post due to her wanting to remain anon. Luckily I managed to find a few which shows off her wonderful smile and glow that work with a crop ;) So glad you appreciate the shot! I agree about pregnancy being beautiful and empowering. Just something about it that is magical.
