Pregnancy evokes a range of emotions, many of which are unprecedented – to the mother and father. Even if it’s not the first pregnancy in the family, there’ll be a sense of excitement, the unknown, elation, trepidation…it’s not easy to keep track of all the moods running wild in a loving couple expecting a baby on the way.
The most important point to consider is the baby and mother’s health. During the nine months or so they’ll be jubilant highs and nerve-wracking lows, but this shouldn’t deter a mother-to-be engaging in activities that’ll be beneficial to the family. One of these activities is modelling. Is there a more exclusive genre in the modelling industry than maternity models?
Essentially, pregnancy should be celebrated – and what better way to show off your beautiful bulge than modelling? Models Direct has supplied many stunning pregnant ladies in all sorts of promotion shoots, advertising campaigns and TV work. In fact, a recent February 2021 booking required the services of a 24-35 year old pregnant lady for a UK promo shoot. Could you be our next maternity model?
Let’s focus on two maternity models who’ve shined recently in front of the cameras, just to give a taste of what some prospective pregnant models can expect.
Katie – a beautiful maternity model – was assigned to a promotional shoot for Aptamil®, a well-known baby brand made by Nutricia, part of the Danone group. With a revenue of over €25 billion and over 100,000 employees, Danone is a world-leader in food products, and one of many prominent clients we work with. Katie was quick to tell us how she (and her bump) was looked after. All our clients respect our models, although pregnant models are understandably afforded extra care and attention. Katie said, “I really enjoyed my recent shoot with Aptamil booked by Models Direct. It was a really fun shoot. The crew were lovely and really looked after me and “bump” well, and hopefully it may be the start of many more to come!” See the gorgeous Katie in the link below:
FittaMamma was founded in 2012 by Alexandra McCabe. Branded as “the world’s first and best activewear for mammas”, FittaMamma produces fitness clothing for pregnant ladies, especially leggings, bras and sports tops – designed by women for women. Their slogan matches many pregnant ladies’ beliefs: “Pregnant – not powerless”. It was the perfect company for our model, Natalie, who had modelled for us before. Natalie said, “The shoot was really good, the team was really professional, and I look forward to my next job. Thank you!” Have a look at Natalie’s assignment below and consider if you could be like her modelling for pregnancy products:
Maternity models have always fared well in the modelling industry, and we’ve seen a significant surge in demand over the past few years. This means that new pregnancy products are being developed all the time, as well as more campaigns to emphasize the realities of pregnancy.
If you’re expecting a little ‘un and have the confidence and glowing aura to flaunt your natural appearance, modelling for us is a natural progression! Your baby won’t know at the time, but they’ll be able to see the photos or video shoot when they’re a little older. Just think – a modelling mum!
