Can I first say that I can’t believe I’ve been holding these photos hostage for this length of time… since August to be exact! 2016 was a blur but this photoshoot was such a fabulous highlight for us. My dear friend and doctor of Chinese medicine, Dr. Carolina Zakes, called on myself and my Wasabi Dolls to treat some of her clients to a brunch and pampering at B’Livinn in Coral Gables. Dr. Zakes has traveled on the unique journey of using acupuncture therapy to assist woman and couples fulfill their desire to have children of their own. As many of you may (or may not) know, millions of American woman are faced with an inability to become pregnant and/or carry to term. So when the physical and emotion rollercoaster of IVF (invetrofertilization) results in a healthy pregnancy and a beautiful baby… there’s so much to celebrate! Take a moment and admire and celebrate these gorgeous Mommies, Mommies-to-be and we included Dr. Zakes lovely Mom in the fun as well (last photoed):

Having your first child is truly something special and a moment in time that doesn’t get a repeat. For that reason it’s very special when a first time Mommy-to-be gets to relish in the glow of her pregnancy, and take photos without feeling the need to suck in (that little joke was courtesy of our Mommy Model herself). Belinda asked us to give her a natural “no-makeup” makeup look with tousled waves and that’s just what she got! Simply Beautiful.
