Body Painting for Pregnant Women.

I was reading an interesting article on on 5 ways to document your pregnancy. The article mentioned the usual trends from keeping a belly growth chart to doing a belly cast, but the most interesting to me was having a picture taken of your painted pregnant body. Featured was the works of European make up artist and photographer Julia Francis for Embody.

I could not locate a specific company here in Columbus, Ohio that catered to this trend, but I would love to hear any mama's out there that may know an artist/photographer who can help Columbus Mama's document their pregnancy in this way.

Take a look at the photo gallery at (be warned, they show it all!)

I am not sure that I would have been brave enough to do this during my pregnancy, but who knows you may want to give it a try.

I have been baby planning and consulting friends and family for some time now and have decided to make things official, so I began The Mama Mosaic a baby planning and consulting company in Columbus, Ohio. While experience is always important, I wanted to supplement my experience with an actual certification and am in the final stages of doing so. I am currently working with the International Academy of Baby Planner Professionals to achieve this goal and will need a few volunteers to complete the process. If you are an expectant mother and are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact me (see the contact me link) and I will share with you how you can help; however I can sum it up by saying FREE SERVICES TO YOU!

I am also pleased to announce that fantastic things are happening at The Mama Mosaic. The launch of the company website is scheduled to take place this spring... so keep posted. (
