santa cruz bay area belly casting
I’d be so thrilled to cast your belly!

Bellycasting is a way to remember your amazing shape! Often families hang them in the baby’s nursery, and/or enjoy taking pictures of their new baby laying inside the cast. I come to your house with all the supplies needed and can offer suggestions on how to further preserve and hang your cast.
This can be fun for the whole family, and it is also a great baby shower and/or Mother Blessing activity. bellycast
The casting session lasts about an hour. The only thing you provide is your gorgeous belly, and perhaps a few helping hands if you wish. This can be done in a modest way as well if mom wishes. Belly casts are best done close to the due date, between 8 and 9 months.
Once it’s dry the mother, any resident artist, or myself, can decorate the cast. Please see the options below to decide which best suits your needs!
