Pregnancy photos: they’re so cliché. Perhaps that’s why German photographer and graphic designer, Simon Schaffrath, tried doing something a little different when it came to announcing their first baby with some photos.
Simon’s concept was to take his girlfriend Saskia’s baby-bumped body and transform it into a landscape using some body paint and miniature trees. The Frankfurt-based photographer noted that “Modelling was great fun for both of us – of course we only used non-toxic and skin-tolerant products and materials, such as paste”
It required a lot of artistic skills but that wasn’t the only issue, as their baby – named Theodor – “often kicked mom’s belly, so the paste got some cracks and we had to repair the landscape all the time.”
