Maternity photoshoots offer expectant mothers a chance to embrace their pregnant body and to immortalize the days before they give birth. The shoots are fresh and fun, but they’re even better when the mother in question is a pregnant pig like Sophie!
Sohpie is a pig living at Happy Trails Animal Sanctuary, an Ohio-based facility that takes in and re-homes animals of all sorts. She shares the sanctuary with everything from other pigs and hogs to horses, roosters, lambs, cows and other barnyard buddies.
Recently the beauty was expecting piglets, and Happy Trails decided to commemorate the happy occasion with a photoshoot. They recruited Jessica Cvelbar of Enjoy The Ride Photography, who was thrilled to take on the “once in a lifetime request.”
And so commenced a thrilling pig maternity shoot the likes of which we’ve never seen before!
Sophie posed with a bow in her hair, languidly reclining across the barn floor.
She served face and posed with a tasty treat…
However, her best shots came once she donned a graceful tutu.
I mean… literal heart eyes over here!
Talk about #ModelGoals.
A few days after delivering her defining photoshoot, Sophie went into labor and delivered an adorable litter of six piglets. Happy Trails named three of them Jazzy, Simon and Eva, and they’re currently raising funds to neuter and spay the piglets before sending them off to live happily ever after at a “forever home.”
Sophie meanwhile is a doting pig mother who is hopefully enjoying some well earned rest.
Here’s hoping that she and her babies find a home and live long lives of luxury! Hopefully they were able to trot into 2017 remaining as regal as can be…
