Amazing maternity and family photography from Tricia Davidge

Posted by

Like most random and brilliant photography discoveries, I found Tricia’s work while rummaging around the wide Flickr world for kickass maternity and baby photography. I subsequently spent several hours of my life, spread out over a few days, wishing I lived closer to Redding, California, where Tricia is based.

  1. OMFG!!!!!!!!!!! you forgot to add “have badass killer fantastic makeup” as well. this is absolutely stunning!!!!!! and yes, i do want to get pregnant again (workin on it!!!) and then i shall have my belleh painted like a beautiful juicy piece of fruit. LOVE THIS.

  2. Gorgeous! What I am dying to know is–how did she get that ahhhhhmazing bright pink hair while pregnant? I thought you weren’t supposed to dye your hair? Is that still a thing, or is it just an urban myth like the whole back tattoo=no epidural nonsense? If I have been misled and it’s totally safe, that will pretty much make my day, ’cause I’m kind of dreading 10 months with wonky roots!

    • From the research I’ve done, is that basically there’s no research on it. Nobody cares about pregnant hair. *sigh* It seems that there is some kind of risk of the chemicals going into your blood stream which then will get in contact with the baby. *shrug* Mostly, I found recommendations for more natural ways to dye. So, I haven’t bleached my hair in about 9 months now, but I do regularly add Manic Panic (It’s natural and safe, as far as i can tell) blue to it. So I have about 2 inches of dark brown hair, and like 6 inches of blue. I like to pretend nobody notices… ^-^

    • It’s the fumes of the dye that are supposed to be the problem, not the chemicals getting into your blood. Unless you have a huge gash on your head, it’s not getting into your blood (and you probably shouldn’t be dying your hair then either). When I was pregnant I made an offhand comment to my doctor about being sad I was going to have terrible hair for the whole pregnancy.
      He said it was fine to dye it as long as I was in a well ventilated room so that I wasn’t inhaling all those fumes from the dye. So I dyed my hair the whole time, and delivered a perfectly healthy little girl.

    • its ok to dye your hair in a salon wile pregnant just don’t use box ( over the counter color) while pregnant. the stuff you buy in the store has more ammonia and is less regulated than salon quality color . even if it says ammonia free its made from chemicals that are made from ammonia . also ammonia occurs naturally in the world so organic dyes can still call them selves organic because ammonia is natural. try paul mitchell ink works in a salon ,it kicks manic panics ass
