This Instagram Account Features the Most Stunning Maternity Shots . . . of Pregnant Barbies
After becoming inspired to re-create stunning photos she saw from photographers she admired, the creator of the Mahogany Barbie Life Instagram account, Terrie Johnson, decided she'd re-create them for fun at a 1:6 scale with, you guessed it: Barbies. Although some of the photos are typical lifestyle photos or depict the behind the scenes of a photographer's life, the most stunning of the group are the handful of maternity photos featuring pregnant Barbie dolls.
"I came up with this idea to try to re-create photos that I've seen done by famous photographers using Barbie dolls," Terrie told POPSUGAR. "I've never seen it done before, so I thought, 'Why not give it a try?' I came across a gorgeous maternity photo (created by Glow Portraits) of a lady wearing a blue tulle dress laying in blue tulle, and I knew I just had to replicate it."
As for the gorgeous baby bumps featured on the Barbies in the maternity photos, because Mattel doesn't offer a pregnant doll, Terrie created them herself. "I sculpt the baby bump myself, and hand-make all the maternity clothes. A well-known maternity photographer, Ana Brandt, even sent me material from her line of maternity dresses for me to use. It's really humbling to know that the best of the best loves my work, and I've been admiring her work for years!"
Check out Terrie's maternity photo re-creations ahead, and give Mahogany Barbie Life a follow to see what she does next!
