Cassie has been featured on Woman as Art before, and I was happy to have her here in the studio again this week.
She’s about 33 weeks along, and is expecting to see her new son in about 6 weeks. He will join a big brother and two big sisters. They all got in the action during the session!
Someone might question the pose in the 3rd photo – with basically Cassie sitting like a man. She did say it was quite comfortable, but the artistic vision behind this is: this is historically a pose of power – and what’s more powerful than bringing life into the world.
And that’s just another way that a woman becomes a masterpiece.
I’m sure over the course of time there will be many images on this site of women who are expecting. I have found this type of work to be extraordinarily beautiful, and I’m grateful to capture women in this way.
I run across many mothers-to-be who feel as though they’re ‘ugly’ and bloated and sometimes – just call themselves fat. I have found pregnant bodies by and large to be graceful, beautiful, and breath-taking.
