She looks like a mix between Allison Sweeney and Reese Witherspoon.

I don't understand the point of maternity pictures. A friend of mine just posted hers on Facebook. I got to be honest, they are not all that pleasant to look at. Do new moms frame these? Look back fondly at them as their kiddos grow up?

Please explain, CU moms! :)

I'm not a Mom but I think it's just an extension of the "I'm-so-hot, I-look-good-constantly" fake self-esteem thing some women have. It explains eye-blinding muffin-top, extra-large belly shirts, and women who pour themselves into a size 20 and talk about their "curves".

It's really just a kind of narcissism. It's also a very defiant way of saying that women should be highly sexually attractive/sexually available under any circumstances. These women are sort of objectifying themselves in a lot of those shots.

Pregnancy is nothing to hide but it's nothing to visually share with random strangers anymore than a loss of virginity or menopause would be.

My girlfriend is a photographer and does several maternity sessions a week. She has a very artistic eye and poses her clients as flatteringly as possible, but admits that it is not easy sometimes.

The pregnant "playboy bunny" is disturbing on many levels.
