Text and photos by Hugo Michaux

My girlfriend was 6 months pregnant with our first child and everyone kept asking me when I was going to take the obligatory shots of her ballooning belly. So we packed a bag of gear and went to the studio where, after much trial and error,I decided to ditch the classical plain grey backdrop and opted instead for a soft and simple daylight setup. The series (unintentionally) took on a more of a fashion feel, and reminds me a little of a maternity wear catalogue.
