GLOWING : Naturi Naughton Maternity Photoshoot

Naturi Naughton, 33, actress on the hit Starz television show Power is expecting her first child with longtime partner, Ben. The couple got with Essence to produce these glowing maternity photos

This will be Naturi’s first child and she is expecting a girl this summer.

When asked about the orange color scheme of the shoot, Naturi had this to say:

“We both just really appreciate Black culture. Ben wore a shirt from Ghana and my theme was “It takes a village to raise a child” for my baby shower. We just always try to incorporate African proverbs or Kente cloth or using different images to celebrate this beautiful Black girl that’s coming into the world.”
