This Photographer Sends Newborn Babies Back Into the Womb

When you were pregnant, did anyone ask if you were doing a belly cast? Maybe you got one done, but had no idea what to do with it after. Well, this U.K. photographer, has given this end-of-pregnancy tradition a whole new spin with her series of images of babies in "bump bowls".

Jocelyn Conway takes the plaster cast of the mother's pregnant belly and places the newborn inside for a beautiful photo op.

"I love the idea of the baby being back in its bump for a photo!" Conway told The Huffington Post. "The babies usually love being back in their casts! They seem to settle straight back in to their "˜home' for the last nine months! It's lovely to see!"

5 years ago she came up with the idea when she took a body casting course. Her now trademarked "Bump Bowl" project, starts by creating the cast when mom is 34-36 pregnant and helps to create these stunning photos after baby is born.

They are so beautiful and add a little extra sentiment to the traditional newborn photos.

Would you do this for your newborn photos?
