Belly casting San Jose, Califormia


Here's a beautiful belly cast I preserved for my cousin's daughter in San Jose, California.  She mailed me the belly cast and she had me paint it silver with purple, green and pink highlights and wanted a purple satin sash with a sequin trim to match.  She absolutely loves it!

Belly casting Phoenix - hospital visits



I recently received a phone call from a husband who wanted to set up a belly cast appointment for his wife during her stay at St. Josephs hospital in Phoenix.  When I arrived, she was so excited and couldn't wait to have her belly cast, plus, she knew she wanted it finished like the picture below.  When we were done, I took this picture of her holding her precious keepsake that her son will cherish for many years to come!

If you are on bed rest in a local Phoenix hospital and want your belly cast, they will most likely grant me permission to come in and cast you.  Don't wait until it's too late!

Blessings!

Over the past few months I have been so blessed to help families in need of my services.  First it was the repair of baby CJ's foot casting the hospital had made but then it cracked after two weeks (at 24 week old), then a mom who lost her baby full term asking if I had a spare belly cast to decorate it in memory of baby Rose with roses and a picture of her and her baby on the belly.  This week I was contacted to do a foot casting for a 17 year old girl whose foot will be amputated in the next two weeks due to a rare cancer.

I'm so grateful for my talent and that I'm able to create these special keepsakes for clients to treasure!

Thank You God!

Belly casting ideas and belly casting art


I have a lot of clients who like to visit my blog to see different belly casting ideas and designs.  I encourage all my clients to come up with a color scheme and a unique idea so their belly cast will become an original piece of art just like Giavannah's keepsake.

When my client brought me a picture of her baby's nursery rug, I asked if I could paint her belly cast to reflect the same design as the rug, she agreed and it turned out perfect!

Let us know if we can help create your one-of-a-kind belly cast!

Belly casting in Phoenix - pink and pearl style


This new mommy wanted something soft and girly so she had me paint her belly cast cream with a rose faux finish.  It will be displayed in the baby's nursery to match her crib bedding.

Plaster gauze belly cast - Don't let this happen to you!

Here's a belly cast I just received from a client in Redondo Beach, CA who wants me to preserve and paint it in silver and embellish it with rhinestones.  She had her cast done by a person who supposedly has been belly casting for a few years.  When I received the package, I felt bad for my client who paid this person.  The belly cast came distorted in the breast area, very weak under the belly and uneven and thick in so many places.  Thank goodness I can repair it but if you are going to pay someone to create your precious keepsake, please review their work first and don't let this happen to you!  We take pride in our work because we do it right!

Belly casting Arizona - memory of mommy and me


If you're thinking of NOT getting a belly cast, please reconsider!  When your children become adults, they would love more than anything than to have this precious keepsake, especially to see how they shaped you before they came into this world.  I know I would give anything to have a belly cast of my mom when she was pregnant with me, especially now that she's passed away.  And to have a cute keepsake of my baby bum...there is no doubt that I would have it on display wherever I lived!

Even if you don't use our services, please do this for your children, they will cherish them forever!

Precious hand and foot castings


I am so grateful I was able to cast Emmalyn when she was just two weeks old because little did we know, God would take her at just 4 weeks of age.  Her mother was a pregnant model I used for a special event and I gave her this shadowbox as a thank you gift, now she'll have these precious keepsakes to cherish for a lifetime!

Belly casting Phoenix


This new mommy loves vintage!  She had me add a small bouquet of baby roses, baby's breath, vintage lace and tulle to match her beautiful pink and green belly cast.  When she picked it up, she absolutely loved it!
