Let me be clear that this comment does not pertain to the whole naked pregnant couple photoshoot thing (even though it’s stupid and gross). It pertains to you in general. Every time I read you’re posts, and sadly, I think I’ve almost made my way through your entire website (so now I’ll need to find something else to do with my precious time at work), you really just make my day so much better. You’d probably like it a lot more if I told you you turned it into shit and really pissed me off, you fucking asshole. But no. It find it thrilling and relieving that I am not alone in the fact that most shit on this earth is genuinely fucking stupid, and someone else shares this sentiment, and says it. On the internet no less!! When I found your blog, I felt like a lost puppy who had found its home…and then right as it was running up to the front door to be greeted by its new perfect happy family, got hit by a car. But really, you are my cynical idol. And for that I thank you. Now fuck off.
My former assistant sent me this picture of her (with her shirt up), her husband kissing her pregnant stomach — AND their three children frolicking around them.
I’m going to blame this on the fact that they are Mormon and don’t know any better (she just had baby #5). Oh, she also posted on FB pictures of her giving birth (because, she said “the miracle of childbirth is so AWESOME [sic]”) so double ew to that one.
Frankly you can have as many kids as you want but I still prefer to think that the stork delivers them and don’t want to see your glowing, bloated naked belly on full display.
The best pregnant woman series of photos I’ve ever seen were taken by a good friend… Every morning for the duration of the pregnancy, his wife, dressed in black spandex shorts and a sports bra, stood on a mark on the floor. Each morning, he snapped a photo, taking care she rotated about 20º clockwise for each photo. When it was all over, he made an animated gif out of them all. It was honestly pretty damn cool. That was back when animated gifs were pretty new technology.
Happy New Year, you f’ers!!!
I’ll be back more often once this damn house renovation project is done.
Julie knows my pain.
I live in Mormonville (aka Utah), and one of my neighbors is on baby seven now. They’ve got about 20 photos just like all of these for each of their kids. On their walls.
Then there are even more pictures of the mother holding their newborn against her naked chest, and pictures of the father holding the newborn against his naked chest…
I like the idea of taking pictures to show the progress of your pregnancy, but stuff like this is just annoying to me. But I hate the women who post DAILY updates of the size of their stomachs on Facebook more than this.
I was contemplating kids but this just put me COMPLETELY off the idea!! Just kidding but seriously after Demi graced or grossed the world out with her bare belly and barely covered chest now every rotund belly chick with a baby in it must now hop in front a Annie Lebowitz inspired picture?! Gawd I hope not I have nothing against pregnant women but this shit is not only disgusting and stupid but very arrogant and self serving. We get it you love your growing family and aren’t ashamed of your growing belly but I’ll bet your kids when they see this crap will think otherwise jeeeez!
Is it me, or do most of these couples look exactly alike. I’ve noticed that a lot. There are a so many couples that look like brother and sister. Like they are trying to make-out with themselves. That’s always been on my list. It’s just so creepy.
Can I ask how many of the people who left comments are actually parents? Although many of the photographs shown above are truly hideous because the photographer doesn’t know what they are doing, you have a few images that are truly wonderful and I’m sure when the baby grows up, he or she will treasure the photograph. Yup, you guessed it, I’m a photographer. I also understand that different people have different tastes. So if you don’t like the image then don’t have one taken like it. But geez, grow up and quit judging others on how they live their life. Unless, of course, you don’t have one…
Heidi – If my parents ever showed me a photo like this, I would immediately put myself up for adoption. How about you grow down a little and stop being so uptight and humorless. It doesn;t take a parent to appreciate how ridiculous and white trash this nonsense is.
