Just before her son was born, Spanx founder Sara Blakely woke up in the middle of the night with the idea to turn her pregnancy belly into a canvas. In the morning, she decided to follow through. “I want[ed] to give my husband a creative baby gift; I want[ed] to capture the moment in time with my belly in an out-of-the-box, lighthearted way; and I want[ed] my son to have these pictures as a keepsake in his baby book,” Blakely explains in the book.
