I Announced My Wife’s Pregnancy With Some Special Pictures

My wife and I will have our first baby boy in November. We are very happy about this, so we decided to make some special and creative pregnancy photos. His name will be “Theodor” and each photo idea has its own message.

I worked on every photo for one week. We took the photos on Sundays, then I retouched them with Photoshop till Wednesdays and after that, I planned the next photoshoot ideas. Modeling was great fun for both of us – of course, we only used non-toxic and skin-tolerant products and materials, such as paste in creating these miniature worlds.

Fun fact: while shooting, Theo often kicked mom’s belly, so the paste got some cracks and we had to repair the body art all the time. In the meantime, the pregnancy photoshoots are framed and embellish Theodor’s bedroom and all we can do now is wait for him.

You can reach everything

You will find your way

Enjoy the moment

This is really clever and well done but I love the part when he says the photos are framed in Theo's room. If they're still hanging when he's school-age and he has a friend over, they're gonna be like "hey that photo of the mountains is cool" and he'll be like "yeah they're my mom's boobs"

Hey Simon. I work for Caters, a press agency in New York, and we would really like to run a piece about this wonderful series. As we are a press agency, the story will be sent out over our newswire service to all the mainstream media outlets - both in the US and across Europe. This means that you will, of course, be paid for any images provided to illustrate the story, and will hopefully gain some great exposure along the way, too. If you could send a quick email to jack[at]catersnews[dot]com , I would be happy to explain things in a little more detail than this comment box allows. Thanks! :-)

No pictures shows joy of his wife. Everywhere - "Yo, I made it! I! I! made it with her stomach! We will have a child". Where is woman in it, - I mean, could she be more than just landscape at least at one of those pics? Definitely it's not easy to make her be present there as well, but for example on the pic, where guy is on the island, on a beach, he could call cell phone, and in a bubble (as in comicses), should be a portrait of his happy wife with smile - like he is calling to tell her a news about treasure island or something. She is totally not there! :(

Wow, way to bring the mood down you depressing feminist. How about the fact his wife "is" the subject matter and is harboring life within her. My god, can you find something else to complain about and leave this lovely couple alone without bring you're feministic views into the light. Perhaps she didn't want her fact to be in the photo, ever think of that? Not everything is black and white.
