Her name is Monica Ferreira Edra and she's an innovative mom. She wanted to be photographed before and after giving birth as a mermaid with her family and she did it with the help of a photographer who fell in love with her idea.
Arpoador, Rio de Janeiro was the place chosen by both the mom and photog to take the photos. In addition to the production of hair and makeup, common for these sessions, Monique used a special siren tail made of polyester, top, and bikinis that were ocean inspired. The result of the shoot was really beautiful. Check out the photos
A mermaid mom
Monique thought about making a very original maternity sesh. Months after giving birth, she repeated her maternity shoot but this time accompanied by her daughter María Eduarda Rosa Edra. The photos are so sweet and to make it more believable, they were taken at the same place and time as the maternity shoot.
The young woman was 33 weeks pregnant when she took the photos but that did not stop her from climbing high and wet stones. She arrived at the location at 4:30 a.m. to take pictures at dawn.
Almost a year after the birth of her baby, she and her husband decided to do the same thing but taking some precautions: "We did not go so early in the morning and I did not get to climb all the stones as I had when I was pregnant," said the young mother.
Still, the images are a true dream. Pure love. Look at them with your own eyes:
