Amazingly Bizarre Pregnancy Portraits, Couples Edition

Last summer’s Amazingly Bizarre Pregnancy Portraits Parts One and Two were such hits, this summer I’ve followed up with the couples edition.

But before you enter the weird world of semi-naked couples holding whips or dead birds or guns, let’s give a collective shout out to self-expression!

Do we really need more tasteful shots of perfect, expecting couples  wearing things like shirts and doing things like not holding dead birds?

On that note, here’s some serious diversity, audacity and joie de vivre.

    This is a very common pregnancy couple motif-- dad is on knees or lower than mom and looking up.Reverence for the power of the female body? His last moments getting to act like a toddler before he has one of his own? Take your pick. The dog is a nice touch.

    I try to always show a face when I show a bump, just coz, you know, there's a brain attached to that uterus, and an opinion and a voice. But my feminist bone-picking aside, this guy looks very proud of his contributions.
