The miracle of pregnancy is so wonderful that women willingly go through morning sickness, back aches, and a pain that men can not even fathom to bring a new life into the world. Argentinian photographer Sophie Starzenski documented her beautiful progression in a simple set of ten photographs. With her Canon blocking her face, she captured a monthly shot of her body’s transformation in a mirror. The selfie snapshots show her growing bump, with a special surprise reveal at the end. The series, which she calls “Proyecto Pyokko” (Pyokko is a nickname for her new bundle of joy), is as perfectly composed as the precious infant she created.

For Buenos Aires-based Starzenski, photography has been more than just a hobby from the time she was 18 and studied under Italian photographer Aldo Bressi. She combines her talent with her love of travel, bringing her camera everywhere she goes and has been fortunate turn her favorite pastime into a freelance career. Check out more of her work on her website and Behance, then show her some love on Facebook.
