(Scroll down for video) A woman was devastated to learn that her employer decided to terminate her employment because she posted topless images of herself on Facebook.

Stephanie and Arynn of Overton, Texas, are engaged to be married.

Stephanie, who is pregnant, decided to do a photo shoot of herself in order to boost her confidence.

Arynn, who supports his fiancee, stayed in his jeans, while Stephanie stripped all her clothes and was wearing only a bikini bottom during the photo shoot, which was taken by Wolf & Rose’s Photography.

Stephanie decided to post what she claimed was body-positive shots on the photographer's Facebook page, where they went viral.

When Stephanie's employer, Austin Bank Texas, learned about the topless photo shoot, they fired her, saying that the company was a family friendly business and her photos were not appropriate.

Stephanie worked at the bank for a year.

Wolf & Rose Photography wrote on Facebook: "I completely understand that it is perfectly within the company's rights to terminate someone.

"Texas is an at will state, and legally, her employer did nothing wrong, but I cannot help but wonder how a company who claims to uphold family values can morally terminate an otherwise model employee who is 20+ weeks pregnant with her first child.

"Their decision not only stripped her of her insurance, which is without a doubt a major necessity while pregnant, but also her paid maternity leave."

Stephanie said that she does not regret doing the photo shoot as it boosted her self confidence and she appears to be very much in love with her fiance on the images.
