This Guy’s Wife Refused to Take Maternity Photos, So He Posed for Them Instead

When his wife Meghan refused to have maternity pictures taken, Justin (who goes by DruishPrincess69 on Reddit) decided to take matters into his own hands. And by matters we mean his belly. Since his wife wouldn’t take the photos, he hired a photographer and posed for all the stereotypical maternity shots himself.

We can’t even imagine what photographer Kerri Lohmeier of Harley K Photography thought when she got that call, but she played along and created a series of photos that are downright hilarious.

Cheesy black and white shots on the bed, Justin making a heart with his hands, a few photos of him staring lovingly at his ample midsection, and even a composite of Justin going in to kiss his own belly all make an appearance:

“We basically did a shoot with him like I would do with women,” Lohmeier told us when we asked about the series. “But clearly this came out way more comical… ice cream cravings included…”

Oh, and by the way, Justin doesn’t usually look quite so… maternal… in his day to day. This is a photo of him when he’s not trying to seem pregnant:
