As expectant mom Chelsea Karr posed in front of an explosion of color, she created an image that was undeniably powerful. But it was the story behind her pregnancy shoot that really made it poignant. Karr had experienced a heartbreaking trauma – but she was standing strong through it all.
Karr is from Ashby, Massachusetts and works as a professional photographer. The 29-year-old is wife to Hollis Brodmerkle, 28, and they have a son – three-year-old Oliver, or Ollie. The family recently posed together for her stunning pregnancy shoot.
One image showed the mom wearing a long white dress and turned to the side while cradling her baby bump. As she looked off into the distance, colorful smoke filled the air behind her. In the images, the bright clouds create a rainbow effect that contrasts with Karr’s neutral dress.
