— 40 Weeks & A Mirror

Buenos Aires-based photographer Sophie Starzenski shows just how much women’s bodies change during pregnancy with this series called 40 Weeks and a Mirror.

She’s combined two growing trends, “the selfie” (a a self-portrait taken with a camera or phone) and pregnancy progression portraits, to create a fantastic set of photos that are both artistic and vulnerable. Wearing just underwear, she drapes one arm over her bare breasts while the other is wrapped over her head, holding the camera. In all of the shots, we don’t get to see the photographer’s face, though at the end of the series, she’s holding her adorable 2-month-old son Simon who had been steadily growing in her belly.
