The artistic services I am offering here can be done individually or as a package. They are all creative ways to acknowledge and support a woman during her magical time of pregnancy.  There are not many times in a woman's life where she is pregnant, so during this time it is a real opportunity to cherish, celebrate and embrace the glorious journey to motherhood.  

It may be 9 months before a mother holds her baby but there are many ways to bond before you get to hug your angel, from singing, breathing exercises, massage, yoga to belly painting! There is evidence to show that starting your bonding process during prenatal period lowers the chance of postpartum depression.

Painting a pregnant woman is actually an ancient tradition, it's like a blessing, for mother and child. In ancient Egypt for example, the mother-to-be would have her belly painted with specific symbols to offer protection for herself and her baby. This tradition permeates through India,  South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa. Even the Native Americans had a pre-birth tradition which involved belly painting called a 'blessingsway, or 'Mother Blessing'. This is a Navajo ceremony, which celebrates a woman's rite of passage into motherhood. 

The ideal time to have your belly painted is between 6-8 months, or when mama is most comfortable. 

We can come and visit you in the comfort of your own home - covering North and South Carolina areas. 

Belly Painting

First I will have a Free Consultation (before our session takes place) with the Mother-to-be to discuss a healing mandala design, pattern and colours.

All of my mandala designs emit a wonderful healing energy. 

Whilst I am painting the belly, I like to keep mother and baby relaxed, so I send reiki healing to them at the same time.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy healing technique that is 100% holistic. 

Belly painting takes approximately 2 hours. Mama can get up and move around any time. I use non-toxic water based paints.  


Professional Photo Shoot

Our beautiful mother-to-be (partners and siblings also welcome) will be photographed in a previously agreed location. 

Some clients like outdoor nature backgrounds, others are happy for me to put a background in and do the photos indoors.

Either way, we can create perfect images to professionally alter for you. 

Don't worry ladies, stretch marks can be erased in a blink of an eye!


5 Professional Images

After our photo shoot has taken place, 5 of the best photographs will be selected to be 
professionally altered with digital software. Creating magical, artistic, high quality images for you to cherish forever

You will have copies of all photographs but a standard services includes 5 professionally touched high resolution images, unless requested otherwise. 

Before your images are altered you will be asked if you want any themes or graphics to be included in the images. 



Get a wonderful DVD of your experience from start to end as a wonderful keepsake to sit down and share with others.
