The Melanin Bump
Capturing the Beauty of Expectants of Color
The Melanin Bump is a photo collection of Bumps of Color. All shades and all sizes. The series offers maternity shoots for Moms who are unable to afford such a capture to remember their time being pregnant.
Now that you have seen the collection’s amazingly beautiful Bumps, check out the Project’s group shots.
We’re hosting a Black Chest/Breastfeeding Photoshoot in the Greater Toronto Area. We’re looking for 5 Models with their Baby/Child(ren). Models selected will be compensated. If you are interested, click below to register.
As we are readying for our first shoot post-suspension for Covid-19, we are in need of supplies to ensure the safety of Bumps that participate in the photoshoot, including face masks, gloves, and hand sanitiser.
In addition to caring for the Bumps with Manicures, Pedicures, Hair, and Makeup, the cost to support the project has increased.
The project needs supporters to help our Bumps who are unable to afford a maternity shoot and a little pamper care, especially in these times.

what the Bumps have said...
I discovered the Melanin Bump thanks to my doula and working with Alleah was truly an amazing experience. From her warm personality, to her beautiful eye for capturing moments, the overall experience was wonderful. I think it is amazing to have another woman of color using her platform to shine light on other women of color and to highlight us and our stories, our struggles and our triumphs. I would absolutely recommend others to work with Alleah and the Melanin Bump.
