1000 Photo Stop-Motion Project on Pregnancy

When photographer Tomer Grencel found out his wife was pregnant, he didn’t just take a couple photos, he took 1,000. Grencel’s photos cover the span of his wife’s nine-month pregnancy from the beginning until his baby is born, and adds a little humor in the process:

Grencel has added some unique touches to his stop motion video, such as the dogs pulling the baby cradle and himself “blasting-off” out of the frame. After a month of video editing, the video was uploaded to YouTube where it has garnered a great deal of attention, having gained over 800,000 views in a little over four months. The pregnancy and the video also lead Grencel and his wife to start a baby blog, called babyrulez.com.

    Its really nice, but you can see how her body is ruined now, once nice looking breasts are now huge saggy, her stomach isnt as nice as before, and she looks much much older and more tired. Good luck getting back to shape!:) congratulations with your baby!:)

    She looks gorgeous to me Anna. Any woman than makes a baby after 9 months of massive physical change and is proud and happy to do so is sexy as hell in my book. Good look getting a “meaningful” life!

    Great video guys! Brilliantly up-lifting.

    Anna, spoken like a true woman who hates childbirth. I hope one day you can be as comfortable in your skin as Tomer’s wife. Your comments appear to be childish, spoken out of jealousy and should have been kept to yourself.

    Great idea. I liked it a lot. Kids are wonderful!

    This is about the photography it wasn’t meant to critique the subject. That being said, I think it was done very creatively, the girl looked beautiful throughout her pregnancy and their baby is precious.

    Anna, I pity you, what a sad, sad, outlook you have.

    That’s was really cute. What a great memory. And I have no idea why Ana would be so critical and mean what a disgrace!

    This is about the new mother and dad, their love, and having these photos to share with their family and friends, and their new child later in life. I thought this was adorable. I think it is a good thing to share with other young parents so they can get ideas for thier photos to take. And the mom is as beautiful after as she was in the beginning. Looking healthy, and happy and content. Thank you for sharing this with us. Some people are meant to be parents and some are not. If you aren’t, than please done!
