Arthur Meehan is a fine art photographer dedicated to delivering beautiful and memorable portraits of women at one of the most poignant times in life. Meehans pregnancy nudes are natural and elegant and document this exciting period with all the taste and artistry expected of a leading photographer. It is his love of the female form that has led to an interest in shooting nudes, and he now has 20 years of experience in the art form. A few years ago, when one of Meehan’s pregnant friends asked him to photograph her nude to capture her pregnancy on film, he decided to take on the challenge. He asked his wife to sit in on a session for the comfort of a friend, who had never posed nude before and the results were wonderful. The images are subtle and understated; the curve of a woman’s body and stomach are shown to great affect in silhouette. The dark background and lighting makes the women look like bronze statues glowing with vitality. Meehan says, what I offer is not a day in a photo studio being photographed like a supermodel, it is a private quiet day of shooting very beautiful and personal photos. Arthur Meehan’s images work to combat the pressures felt by women to look a certain way in today’s society. Meehan’s nude models are strong sirens, unabashedly sharing their bodies with the camera. He shoots on film rather than digital and lovingly develops all prints by hand in the dark room.
