Adorable Baby Bump Paintings By Carrie Preston Will Make a Lasting Beautiful Memory From Your Pregnancy

baby bump paintings feat (1)

I create baby bump paintings! Yup, this is what Carrie Preston does for a living. It might sound weird and even creepy that she gets to paint bumps all day, but to her ( and us too ) it’s just beautiful and must be a very unique experience.

Carrie Preston is a mother of two herself based in Cornwall and she has a Ba Honours degree in Early Childhood studies, she admits that both art and children’s welfare are her passions so being able to create spaces where children can develop and explore is the perfect mix for her.

A baby bump painting can take around two hours to complete from start to finish, the best part about it is that the future mother to be can just sit and relax while her favorite design is being brushed on her cool bump. Little cool secret is that the feeling of the cold brush strokes on the mother’s belly usually follows with the baby kicking a little bit during the session, which makes this whole experience even more personal and meaningful both to the artist and the mother. When the bump piece is ready, Carrie takes a picture so that they both have a cool keepsake to store.

Carrie says she loves the fact that every bump painting has a story behind it, she already created more than 130 baby bump paintings and all the mothers really loved the experience. This cool and unique occupation allows Carrie to both be a mom and work from home while earning a living and she loves every minute of it. No doubt that the pregnancy period in a couple’s life is a magical time and Carrie believes that if there’s something unique and creative you can do to enhance this experience and make a lasting memory, you should do it with out hesitation.
