Beyoncé just changed the maternity photo game with her most recent album drop. Are we surprised? Nope. Not even a little bit.
Beyoncé basically broke the Internet when she announced that she's pregnant with twins, but today the superstar managed to outdo even herself. In a move that's reminiscent of the time she dropped a whole musical album out of nowhere, the twin-mom-to-be released a full album of maternity photos. Trust when we say that these are everything.
Whether you're envisioning a bold, colorful theme or a soft, ethereal feel for your own maternity shoot, you can probably draw some inspiration from Beyoncé's images. There are a few that carry on the floral aesthetic we first saw in the pregnancy announcement, but that's not all you'll find on Bey's web site, which is where she shared the images in an album entitled "I Have Three Hearts".
There are nearly nude shots, actual nude shots, moving images, flower crowns, underwater images and even a few cameos from Bey's firstborn, daughter Blue Ivy. It is, hands down, the most elaborate set of maternity photos we've ever seen.
While you might not want to go all out for your own maternity photo shoot, we suggest you take a look at some of our favorite shots from Beyoncé's for inspiration because they really are something else. And even if you don't need the inspo, these are worth a good look. They're seriously works of art, and Mrs. Carter couldn't possibly be any more radiant.
