These artistic maternity portraits are an honorable tribute to the beauty of motherhood. A Dublin-based art director and mother of three decided to create a series of self portraits during the final week of her fourth pregnancy. The images are all taken from overhead as she lays in a bathtub filled with feminine floral arrangements.

Other portraits make use of paint to create images and scenes on the bellies of expectant mothers. There are also photoshoots that take place underwater to evoke a surreal and mermaid-inspired theme.

There are various ways to capture the elegant process of pregnancy and these artistic maternity portraits are just a few ways that women are choosing to cherish their journey. Each portrait is unique and personal for the expectant mother featured in it.
