Pregnant Ashley Graham Just Did a Nude Photoshoot—And Her Husband Photographed It All

Ashley Graham’s countdown to motherhood has officially begun.

The 32-year-old pregnant model and body positivity advocate revealed that she closed out 2019 with a special maternity shoot. Not only did her husband, Justin Ervin, get behind the camera, but Graham also striped down to her birthday suit for the occasion.

She shared a slideshow of her tastefully nude maternity shoot on her personal Instagram account captioned, “Last shoot of the year with the love of my lie, growing the love of our life.”  

The first photo in the series shows Graham in a nude robe (with her bump peaking out) looking at shots on Ervin’s camera (he’s a cinematographer, BTW). Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun and her makeup is minimal and glowy.

The second pic in the slideshow features Ervin photographing his wife in a brick-walled loft. Graham is sitting in a stream of light, covering her chest and baring her bump. She wears nothing but a cozy pair of socks. (We kind of love that detail).

The married couple of nine-years are expecting their first child—a boy—next month.

Recently, Graham opened up about embracing her changing body, sharing a photo of herself in a yoga position, which she captioned, “Throughout my pregnancy so far I’ve gained 50 lbs. And the best part is, I don’t care! I have never felt better, and I am so thankful that my body and son have allowed me to be as mobile and flexible as I have been. Between working out, yoga, acupuncture and lymphatic massages, I finally feel like I figured out this whole pregnancy thing and how to feel my best.”

She also shared a candid snap of her pregnancy stretch marks, writing, “Same but different.”

Props to Graham for embracing her growth and sharing her journey with her fans.
