Nude Pregnancy Photography

Hello, Although I read a lot of the post here this is actually me first question so please forgive me if I get it in the wrong area or something.

I have an upcoming nude shoot with a pregnant model which I am very excited about shooting because I have looked for a long time trying to find a model who wanted to be photographed nude while she was pregnant. Anyway, I would like for the images to be very artistic and classy in nature and most of them will probably be finished in B&W. A few months ago when I decided I wanted to do a shoot like this I found some very nice images done is a very artistic manner and I thought they were fabulous. Now that I am looking for them to show my client it seems all I can find are just the ones where a pregnant lady is either lying on her back with her tummy sticking straight up or standing and showing the profile of her tummy. I guess these are OK if this is what the photographer and client was looking for but to me most of them just look like snapshots highlighting the woman's tummy. I would like to do something much more artistically than this. My client is very petite and in very good athletic health and is still very active in her fitness routine so I would like to get some images of her in various poses taking advantage of her athletic ability and flexibility rather than just shoot her lying flat on her back or standing up showing her tummy. Although I have exactly in my mind the type of shots I would like to do with her I would really like to have some images to show her to give her a better idea what I am looking for and also showing her how artistic and classy they can turn out when done correctly. I wish I could find the website where I seen the ones before which really caught my attention but I cannot seem to locate them now and I was wondering if anyone has any links or knows of any where I could find some very classy, artistic nude images of pregnant women to show my client what I have in mind for her shoot. She also has another young child I would like to incorporate in some of her images so I would also like to find some of these images as well if anyone has any links to these.

Sorry for making this so long and I really appreciate any links or images you may have which will help me show my client what I have in mind. This is also her first nude work as well so I really want it to turn out just right so she is very happy and will also be proud to use the images we get for her.

Thanks very much, Bryant
