Pregnancy is seen as one of the most magical gifts to a woman. Carrying a baby in the womb for 9 excruciating months, bearing all the pain and nausea, going through all the physical and hormonal changes, and dealing with mood swings is sure one hell of a task. But the sheer pleasure of bringing that little bundle of joy into this world is beyond ecstatic.

Starting with the moment when the baby is just a tiny little seed growing in the warmth of the mother's stomach to the moment when he comes crying out into this world, families usually capture these irreplaceable moments through getting a brilliant photo series done. One that will bring a whole world of memories and ensure a heartfelt remembrance of these admirable days in the future.

These women got their before and after maternity pictures captured, in the most artistic way possible and they are adorable:
