Watching Tessa Grow – The Belly Series

January 30, 2010

I stumbled across Pacing the Panic Room recently, and I was simply blown away by the beauty of this photo series. Ryan took a picture of his wife Cole’s growing baby bump every week of the pregnancy and then added a sweet little note to Tessa Tangerine. Be sure to look all the way through to see the Tangerine herself at the end!

They’re going to put them all together to make a book for the little miss (gonna quote the proud papa on this one) “the first time she tells me she hates me because I won’t let her date a boy that is a few years older, has bad tribal tattoos, smokes the pot, and drives a car with bench seats. Ugh.”


  1. wow what dedicated parents!! she looked so beautiful in every picture. makes me wish i am dating a photographer 🙂

  2. I wanted to say hi and thanks so much for the nice words about this series I did for Cole. Tessa turned 7 months yesterday!! I can’t believe how fast this all goes. Thanks for the post 🙂

  3. wow, that is so great, what a wonderful idea!! i love it!! and what a cool thing to give to your kid hey? and wow, she’s a smokin’ prago woman!

  4. this was SO cool! i wish i had done something like with both kids. and ya know what? both times i said i would do something like this…and nothing was ever finished. this little “project” was so COOL! 🙂

  5. This is so beautiful! I only ended up with a single belly picture of both my pregnancies and neither were as beautiful as these! Tessa will love this book one day. Thank you for sharing!

  6. This makes me wish my husband was the photographer and not I. I’ll have to contrive some crazy self-portraits when I’m pregnant.

  7. Wow, that is beautiful. I have seen many people take pictures of growing baby bellies before, but none were as well done as this. Thanks so much for sharing…although you aren’t helping with my baby craziness!
