Brazilian brands Arquiteta do Amor and Gringa have teamed up to create a photoshoot focusing on the beauty in mothers’ everyday lives, as well as the universal and unconditional love for their children. The “Mother. True Beauty.” project features 8 pregnant and nursing women wearing stylish maternity lingerie in the comfort of their own homes, resulting in a collection of beautiful unretouched images that capture real moments and feelings.
Created for women that cherish the beauty of being a mother, the Arquiteta do Amor by Gringa lingerie collection aims to make women feel feel sexy, comfortable and stunning and includes clever gadgets such as the ‘nursing pin’, which reminds mothers which breast has already fed their child. All pictures were taken by Brazilian photographer (and mum) Amália Gonçalves.
