What Post-Baby Bodies Actually Look Like

One photographer has made it her mission to show the world the beauty in the female body, just as it is

Jade Beall Photography

While the celebrity gossip magazines at supermarket checkouts might publish photos of celebrity moms who morph back into flawness shape just weeks after giving birth, an Arizona based photographer is on a mission to show what post-baby bodies actually look like. 

Five weeks after giving birth to her son, Jade Beall took a photo of herself with her newborn and posted it online for her friends and family to see. 

This photo ended up being shared thousands of times.

Jade says, “The photo was of me with my son, breastfeeding, just holding him completely bare, both of us. I had rolls in places I never had in my life, I had dark circles under my eyes, I was raw, and I didn’t photoshop any part of the photo to make me look different than I actually did right then.” 
 
Since the goal of her photography is to reflect the physical and emotional gorgeousness of women, the positive reaction led her to launch the Beautiful Body Project to help new mothers celebrate their post-pregnancy bodies.
 
Here are some of hundreds of unedited photos she has taken.
 

You can find out more about the project on Facebook and the Beautiful Project website.
