As a mother this is a sympathetic story to me.

Recently it has increased women who don’t want to have no child or just one child. and They are considered to cherish their own lives at the same time. so They tend to always want to leave a record about their lives ilke photos, videos,blogs,twitters……..

I think Maternity nude photos fit well with such a tendency. and I agree all proceeds of making photos will help them to become a parent.
Surely this, as well as in Japan will be made in other countries.

But, I realizse it’s most beautiful picture in the world. Over time, it’s not special any more to hollywood star. Because, everybody’s worth it. It must be very pure and beautiful story for a ordinary baby and mother to remember their special time. And, it’s nice event in low fertility era. By the way, where is a father and husband?

No regrets for that,
The above photos and writings by this photo journalist is really interesting, lively and lovely to note for fresh memories.
This is a very good sign from modern Japanese pregnant women.
Intellectually speaking, modern,educated,professionals,and with honest, radical,practical and with modern thinking ,added by arts and knowledge seeker women will prefer to take photos by natural on their pregnancy stages
Surely, they will keep these lively,natural pictures for day today seeing, happy discussion with their hubbies and for permanent album and keep it for ever long memories.
Whereas, these pregnant nude photos are not permissible in India, Pakistan and from religious countries and too from deep rooted traditional societies.
All real,genuine ,professional photography students and artists will like it very much.
Thanks to this journalist and to Reuters website.

These photos will serve as a memento for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and allow these women to recall how they looked and how happy they were when they were pregnant.

Women in the United States who become pregnant might also want to have similar photos taken as a memento.
