Photo Shoot: Sarah at 8 months

I was excited when my pregnant sister asked me to do a photo shoot with her. 🙂 I wanted to capture the emotions a woman may feel when being pregnant. Though I have no idea what it’s like, I picture having quiet moments wondering what this child will be like, what they will look like, what kind of personality they will have, and if they will be the next great artist.

Baby Jacob.

My family has always been very modest so when my sister revealed her belly for the shoot I was taken by it. I couldn’t help but think of the miracle of life.

This shot made me think of Jesus’ mother, Mary. The son of God was once inside the belly of a woman. Crazy!

Here is a slide show of some of my favorite shots.

  1. What beautiful photos Monica. Your photos and the beautiful way they are shot really do make you think about what is really important in life, how important women are in our world and how motherhood is underrepresented and undervalued. Even though I speak as a man and can therefore never truley understand the nature of child birth, I have always held the belief that men and women should learn to love and respect each other and realise the sanctity held in both male and female. The male holding the seed to life, being together as one being, female nuturing and bringing life into our world. It is sad how men have opressed the sacred feminine through out history. In this new milleneum, let us pray that the importance of womanhood is held in the ore that it deserves and that natures balance is restored so that men and women may truley love one another again. Congratulations on a beautiful site.
