Simon Schaffrath, a photographer from Germany, and his wife decided they wanted to do some pictures for the announcement of their first baby!

They plan on naming him “Theodor” and I absolutely love and appreciate the creativity that Simon put into each and every photo!  Painting the scenery on his wife’s body using non toxic materials and the style of photography Simon used really creates a scene that seems to lay out a recommended life plan for the little guy!

Enjoy the images after the bump… I mean jump. 

Each image is titled to show the meaning behind the image… a message to Theo you could say!

"You can reach everything"
“You can reach everything”

Simon provided a Behind the Scene look into how this shot was created

In the next shot you can see how he added himself to the image.

Another setup shot to see how the next image was created!

"You will find your way" Setup
“You will find your way” Setup
"You will find your way"
“You will find your way”

Easily my two favorites of the set! Now take a look at the rest!

"Enjoy the Moment" Setup

It will be fun to see where this soon to be mother and father take their creativity with the newborn photos! Good luck to you and your family Simon!
