To create the casts we use plaster of paris. We ensure that mum-to-be's tummy is well lubricated and we apply the plaster all over in layers. Once the plaster is set we are left with an incredible mould of a beautiful pregnant tummy and this we use to pose the baby in after they are born and during our newborn photography sessions. After the newborn photography shoots we will give the casts to our mums as a keepsake of such a special time.
At the end of the blog I have included some photos of the belly cast being crafted by our very own Joanne! We create a warm and cosy ambience for our mums-to-be during the casting sessions. It is so important to us that our mums feel at ease during their session and in our company at such a special time for them. We love sharing the build up to birth with our mums as it is a time we too treasured when we had our own children, and a time that we believe should always be remembered.
