Nikki Sixx has made a living playing bass and writing songs for Mötley Crüe, as well as other bands like Sixx A.M., but he’s also passionate about other art forms like photography. The 60-year-old has now combined two loves into a new spread for People.
Sixx was the photographer as his wife, Courtney, stripped down for a maternity shoot. The couple is expecting their first child together in a few weeks.
“As Courtney and I were planning our pregnancy, I was also planning on building a new photography studio," Sixx told People. “As soon as the studio was finished, I came up with concepts for the pregnancy shoot so our daughter would have them for her memories.”
Courtney – the How2Girl blogger - said part of her motivation for the shoot was to create a unique memory for her daughter as she grows up, despite being a little self-conscious about showing some skin at 9 months pregnant.
“Court was a champ,” Sixx gushed. “It was a long day and she beamed the whole time. What a great memory for us, as well.”
