Woman Stages Very Intimate Postpartum Photo Shoot To Build Back Her Body Confidence After Having 3 Babies In One Year


Melanie Varney, from Vancouver, British Columbia, gave birth to a son on March 11, 2013, and twin girls on March 10, 2014. After the pregnancies, the young mother’s body confidence was shot as ‘the reflection of myself in the mirror was that of a stranger’. In an effort to become more accepting of her changed body, she answered a call for a couple to pose for an intimate photo session in a lake.

‘I was on top of the world with what my body had just produced, but the reflection of myself in the mirror was that of a stranger,’ Melanie told Huffington Post.


Then, recently, a photographer she worked with on her art and clothing company West Coast Karma, Trina Cary, put out an open call online asking for a couple to model for an intimate shoot together in a lake. Gabby and Melanie decided to volunteer, and serendipitously they were just the perfect fit for what the photographer was looking for.
