1 Mum Had a Maternity Shoot During the Eclipse, and the Results Are Out of This World
Nichole Carver, a soon-to-be mama from Georgia, had an epic idea we wish we'd thought of: having her maternity shoot during the solar eclipse. And the results are pretty incredible.
The expectant mum is due with her fourth child this Fall and wanted to celebrate her pregnancy in an unforgettable way. But first, she needed to enlist some help from her mother-in-law, Lisa Cruikshank, a photographer and the owner of Still Pearl Photography.
Her most recent pregnancy was even more sentimental after the couple lost a child three years ago.
"This is our last planned pregnancy as we have experienced the joys of birthing two healthy children and the sadness of loss after delivering my second child, a little girl named Emma, stillborn back in 2014," Carver told Fox 5. "Our little boy is nothing short of a miracle to us and what better way to celebrate him than capturing this once in a life moment in time."
And thanks to a 99.1-percent totality rate (which means the sun was almost completely covered), the pictures were breathtaking.
