Editorial photographer Natalie McCain wants to keep it all the way real when it comes to portraying a real woman’s body after she has welcomed a child.
As part of The Honest Body project that she started to end body-shaming and promote self-love, the Rockledge, Florida photographer captured new mothers in vulnerable black and white photos baring their post-baby bodies.
The purpose of the series is to help women love their figures and not feel pressured to have to bounce back after childbirth. – without feeling any pressure to ‘bounce back’ after childbirth.
“Society puts so much pressure on women to ‘bounce back’ after giving birth and I want to help break that cycle,” she explained on her website. “These women are baring their hearts and souls to help show the variations of bodies after giving birth.”
