They wanted to convey a sense of peace, security, and where the hell are we?

“Now THAT was a delicious burrito.”
I keep leaning .. you know,.. to balance out the “She’s about to get pushed” feeling.
I actually know this couple! I went to college withi the guy. I was surprised to be clicking through the site and actually recognize someone! lol I’m waiting for the day I get on here and find my own photo ha ha. And for those who thought it was TN I can assure you it wasn’t although TN is beautiful just like those hills!
Actually, she’s not even pregnant. They’re just enjoying the belly.
Brooke met River in the Spring. They were ready to take the plunge by Fall.
Couldn’t think of summerthing else,so I guess this is a win(ter)
I am a full time photographer for the state of Arkansas. This is clearly NOT a backdrop, but fill-flash added to existing overhead sunlight. I use the technique routinely.
“For the last time! If you don’t agree to help with a.m. feedings and diaper changes, we’re outta here!”
I grew up near Portsmouth, Ohio and live in southeastern Tennessee and definitely think this photo was taken in Ohio, looking across the Ohio River into northern Kentucky. Those wonky little hills and brown water look awfully familiar.
This was taken in Portsmouth, Ohio outside by the Ohio River and that is a burnt kentucky woods in the background and the baby and the woman are just fine!
A womb with a view!
A Camaro somehow, somewhere is involved in this.
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall…
let’s throw this evil fleshy melon into the river
Looks like she’s holding a big tan colored egg.
Of course. A big tan colored egg with a belly button!!!!
A big tan bowling ball?
A big tan compound bow?
I don’t think it’s a studio. I’ll bet they have some lighting equipment with them. The light is definitely too white to be late afternoon sunlight, that’s for sure. maybe it’s not a bridge at all but a balcony or something at the photographer’s studio. The backdrop doesn’t look fake to me.
This picture makes me nervous.
Her stretchmarkless belly makes me jealous.
I doubt she’s full term.
You know how you said “we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it”?!
In the event of an emergency landing over water, this lady brought her own flotation device – seat cushion be damned.
For the win!!!
Personally, I like the photo.
The lightning is a dead giveaway, it’s taken in a photo studio.
Hahah but it’s not a studio. It’s outside
on a REAL bridge at the Ohio River. PS just because I submitted this photo does not mean I am in it. I. Am. Not.
I can back her on this. I live on it, and this pic could definitely been taken there.
“Yes, Honey, I AM glad you wanted to meet here to tell me about the …”
Not a good time to yell PUSH! Not yet, anyway.
It’s so obvious they are just outdoorsy types and they wanted to personify that by being close to nature in her 6 inch stiletto heels???
Is he trying to convince her not to jump or what?
I mean it’s weird in this context. I like some pregnancy shots but this is just goofy.
What happened to my other comment that said “I would like this picture if it weren’t for the bare belly…” It would be really sweet but the bare belly looks weird…in this context. Who sits on a bridge in public and exposes their belly? Bare belly shots should be in private locations….even tucked away in the woods somewhere….but not on a bridge…
Wait.. you whip out your belly in the woods? Sounds like an invitation to get chiggers if you ask me.
LMAO…. “chiggers” are you from the midwest? 🙂 Haven’t heard that term in a LONG time….
Yup, and that’s a lot of calamine lotion, ya know?
I can’t wait to see the picture of the baby balanced on the wall while they kiss…
They’ll probaby follow the new “stairstep” fad…
I think it’s cute. And the hills around us look just like that right about now.
Maternity photos are just getting weirder and weirder…
I remember when the baby was born before the family pictures were taken.
Save the date.
thats the look they gave eachother that got them in this whole perdicament 😛
That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking!!
My thought exactly!
My thoughts exactly!
Tommy there knew EXACTLY how to ensure he’d get a first born son
The belly looks fake. Why aren’t they looking at their baby-to-be.
Photoshopped babies are the curse of the Internet.
I think you were brave to submit your own photo-esp.one as bizarre as this lol Love the title!
Did your baby grow up to become a bungee jumper? xx
The way the back of his shirt is lit in white light not golden and the front of her is lit sowing two different light sources, it appears this was shot inside. so I assume this is a studio that might produce bridge shots on a regular basis. So that means someone built a fake bridge in their studio and uses that to take pictures.
I could be a studio shot, but it looks to me like the sun setting over the hills behind them is lighting them from that direction, and the photog is either using a reflector or softened off-camera flash for fill light. Believe me, there’s no trickery necessary to get a shot like this.
Ooh! I see the Loch Ness monster in the background! You see it!? On the right there! Awesome!!!
LMAO… and I scrolled back up to see like an idiot 🙂
Is he helping her up in the railing to do her belly dance!!
I just love seeing senior pictures.
You got a chuckle out of me with that one.
Like a bridge over awkward waters
I can hear Simon & Garfunkel now…
Let’s see how well you float.
We all float down here….
LOL for the It reference… and thanks sooo much to Stephen King for making clowns even creepier than they already were!
I just need to air this thing out a little.
After some of the other horrible pregnancy photos on here, this one doesn’t seem so bad
I HOPE she’s pregnant.
Never say “congrats on your pregnancy…” unless you know for sure.
I made that mistake once and will never do it again.
Same here, Pookie. BIG mistake.
I heard a comedian once say – never congratulate a woman on being pregnant unless she’s in labor at the time.
Is that Nessy lurking, making the ripples in the water?
I’m mortified. I have to wonder who dreamed that up
This photo makes me nervous. Don’t fall off the bridge! And what IS it with women having to show off their pregnant bellies in pictures? I mean, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to get pregnant so this really isn’t that unusual of an event.
I personally love belly shots. Why not show it off?
Oh Please ! ! you have obviously not tried to get pregnant !!!!!!!! Fo some it could be extreamly difficult with years of tests and diffrent treatments. I’d say it takes MORE than a rocke scientist and it is a very unusual event for some folk.
Look! No stretch marks!
Could be an ad for that cocoa butter stretch mark stuff . . also useful for chapped bellies due to exposure during bleak months facing the cold winds off the river.
I’m with Ginny! I’ve been trying to get pregnant for the past two years. If I ever manage it, you can bet your life I’ll be showing off the belly!
Is that hillside in the background burnt?
My question too. Not only is it a stupid backdrop in a studio implying a pair of people on a bridge, and the appearance of impending unpleasantness, but the hillside in the photographic backdrop looks like it was burnt over!!! Why?
Maybe because it’s not a backdrop?
Maybe they burned it down with there love.
Is she with Billy Joe McCallister up on Tallahachy Bridge?
Yep. Better than the photo (which I don’t think is too awkward, actually).
Well, Billie Joe never had a lick o’ sense. Got some news this mornin’ from Choctaw Ridge.
Good one, Brian!!!
FTW!! Hilarious! Billy Joe jumped cuz he knocked up Becky Sue!
good one brian!
Ok, that has to be in East Tennessee somewhere. LOL. I should know since I am from there.
It’s a backdrop..look @ the lighting
I’m with Ken…and Ali….. IF it is a backdrop – then it is a backdrop of the Tennessee River. It absolutely looks like East Tennessee.
Definitely a backdrop, but why such a bleak one?
This is in Ohio…at the Ohio River, OUTSIDE.
this has a great makings of a CSI episode… where’s Horacio Cane?!
Seems a bit dangerous for a pregnant woman to be perched on the bridge like that….
Obviously a danger-loving couple. Just imagine where the baby was conceived.
Right there on the railing!
Perhaps they’ll name the child River.
She’s not just any pregnant woman-she’s the hot chick from JAG.
Actually, she is Madame Ovary.
who said she was pregnant?
hahahah your comment made my day dr. quinn.
