Unique Memento: Baby Bump Casting

Introducing ‘Baby Bump Bowls’

A unique memento, now available at Photojos Photography!


Hello and thanks for following my blog!

Today, I wanted to tell you more about a brand new service and a completely unique product that I am now offering. I’m really excited about it and hope you will be too! If you are a client of mine you will already know that I am an award-winning specialist in newborn photography and have been professionally photographing babies, children and mums to be for many years, here at my studio in Liverpool City Centre. However, you may not know that as well as my photography services, I am also a trained body sculpture artist and can create maternity bump body casts or ‘Baby Bump Bowls’. It’s something I’ve been working on since training with the UK’s top body sculpture artist Ken Clarke, and it is an exciting extension of my business which I’m hoping you all will love.

So, what is a Baby Bump Bowl casting?

A baby bump bowl casting is a unique and special way to capture that fleeting moment in time that is your pregnancy. By literally taking a cast of your ‘bump’ during pregnancy, a shaped ‘bowl’ is created which, once it’s off, is a record of exactly what your pregnancy bump really looks like!

Then when your little one has arrived, bring them along to my studio for their newborn photography session and see how they fit into your baby bump bowl cast!

It’s a fun and unique way to tie in your pregnancy and baby’s birth, and a way of getting stunning newborn photos of your baby which incorporate a very personal photo prop – their mummy’s tummy!

The casting process The first stage of the process is the maternity bump cast. The mum to be visits my studio for a cast to be made of her gorgeous, blossoming bump. Getting this done at around 36-38 weeks pregnant is ideal, so that the bump is a well-developed size and shape! The cast is made using plaster bandages, and takes just 15-20 minutes to complete, is completely safe and not uncomfortable in any way. Plus, it’s great fun taking the plaster off and revealing the bump impression!

These photos show the bump bowl cast and newborn shoot of local mum Ruth Baller-Wilson and her baby Stanley, who I photographed this week when he was just 11 days old. He came along to the studio with his dad Paul, and his big brother Archie. They loved the whole process and the end result, and now I can’t wait to do more!


 “Getting my pregnant belly cast was fun. It takes no time at all and is actually quite a nice feeling. It’s a little bit messy but that adds to the fun. I Had some pregnancy shots done too which made it all a little celebration for me and my soon to be a baby bump! Returning to the studio a few weeks later with our new addition it was strange to see my old bump set in plaster cast! Baby Stanley had his photo taken back in his old bump, he just about still fit in and it was lovely seeing him back where he came from. He looked super cute and the pics are just gorgeous. It’s a lovely idea for baby shots as the bump cast is the ideal shape and size and has much more meaning than any other prop. Stanley fell asleep in his bump, like he remembered it was a safe place. Mum, dad and big brother Archie got in on the photos too with Stanley sleeping in the cast. It was emotional to think just 11 days earlier he was actually still inside the real bump. We now have beautiful photos with a little something extra to keep and show to everyone along with my bump cast which is currently stuffed with teddy bears.”
