Photographer Captures What Real Women Look Like After Pregnancy

February 21, 2014 2 min read

We all know that women's bodies change after pregnancy. The Beautiful Body Project has set out to capture what real women look like after pregnancy, capturing every beautiful detail. A professional photographer set out to show that all women's post-pregnancy bodies are worthy of admiration in their natural form after a picture of her own body after baby went viral. "I hadn't seen any celebrated post-birth bodies that were the ones that didn't bounce back," Arizona-based Jade Beall says. "I gained 80 lbs. and lost 30, so I was 50 lbs. overweight – heavier than I'd ever been. I realized that I had this different body that I could photograph to celebrate a different shape. I didn't realize that people would like it so much and that it would be an emotional catalyst for a lot of women once I posted them."

"I had hundreds of emails flying in from women asking if I could photograph them, so I started with women here in my town and then started photographing women from other cities," she tells PEOPLE. "There's so many mothers who feel like failures if they are changed, if they have trouble getting the weight off, if they have stretch marks." Beall wants mothers to look at these body changes in a new light, so she started compiling images of women in all shapes and sizes, including many in her A Beautiful Body Project. [bctt tweet="Photographer Captures What Real Women Look Like After Pregnancy"] "Photography is really seeing yourself as you are," the 35-year-old says. "You actually don't need to erase anything off your precious body to think it's worthy of being called art or beauty. Beall has now photographed more than 500 women over the last three years, each with relatable personal stories. She posts many of them on her Facebook page. "Every time I post something online, inevitably there's a flood of, 'Oh my gosh I feel the same exact way'," she says. "When we see images of women celebrated with their supposed flaws, or what I call beauty markings, we're like, 'Oh wait, I kind of look like her and people are saying she's beautiful.' " Have you recently had a baby? Do these photographs make you feel better about your post-baby body?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
