    Nothing says “love” quite like plastic bags, gym shorts & an algae-ridden swamp!

  2. Angi says:

    I’m far less bothered by the outfit and the background as I am with the freaky fake kiss thing they have going on. It looks like the intro to a porno, which really doesn’t fit with the rest.

    As for the plastic bag…Most maternity photogs have some sort of fabric/wrap that they use for their pics, so that it can fit all different sizes/shapes. Usually something light, flowy, guazy and/or shimmery. It is draped or wrapped to cover the personal parts and expose the belly.

    • CarrieM says:

      Obviously “trash bag” is what comes to mind for most people, so even if it is shimmery fabric, it fails, unless the intent is to make people laugh at the photo.

      • Miffy says:

        I agree. The fabric is probably nicer than it first appears in the photo, but you shouldn’t have to squint to see its finer points.

  3. Wren says:

    nope. not plastic bags. it’s definitely that stuff that keeps space shuttles from burning up during re-entry…

  4. backchat says:

    The fabric is beautiful and it is draped so nice. Even the pose with the baby daddy is sweet. But, why oh why, are they in a freakin’ swamp? What is the back story on this? Hope this wasn’t where the baby was conceived! Is that a gator back there behind them?

    Look out for gators! Hope they check for leeches when they’re done.

    “Waste management”

  7. HeLena Handbasket says:

    Paper or plastic maternity wear? She obviously chose plastic!

  8. eko says:

    Gee – you know what comes to mind? – Awkward!!

  9. D'OH says:

    She’s wearing the dry cleaning bags because…..I really got nuthin…All of these pregnancy photos are bizarre and why??? Where do you hang them? Who wants to walk into someone’s home and see them hanging in the foyer? Or better yet-the set as your background on your laptop or computer? Screen saver anyone? How about the Digital picture frames? You can set it up so your entire pregnancy is archived on the memory card and play it over and over and over…The epitome of AWKWARD for those visiting after the baby is born!!

  10. CB says:

    Mommy was a MERMAID!

  11. ChaseIt says:

    Good lord. LOL

  12. Sashavice says:

    Pretty sure the bags are supposed to be a mermaid outfit. I love you, Awkward Family Photos, and this picture is undoubtedly awkward, but I am getting sick of all the pregnancy photos. Time for something else.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Nothing about this picture makes any sense to me! It’s so weird….the blue garbage bag outfit, standing in a swamp–BIZARRE!

  14. Scott's GaGa says:

    Is that a shower curtain she’s wearing or a dry cleaner’s bag?

  15. Lisa says:

    Winner!!! Hands down! I’ve never seen such and odd photo. This is all kinds of weird.

  16. Gina says:

    They are actually are really hot couple. It’s the garbage bags, swimming trunks, gooey swamp water, and the miss-kiss that ruin the photo. I guess that makes a pretty bad photo though…

  17. LilJ says:

    What the?

  18. Penny says:

    “Dude! Lets wrap your privates in blue plastic bags and do a photo shoot.”

  19. OhMyGosh says:

    And then she sqatted an a new life was brought into the world, ‘primordial soup’ style.

  20. Amy says:

    I think she’s pretending she’s a mermaid wearing trash bags? Shells? Maybe sending us an ecological warning? If you litter, pregnant mermaids will be in deep (or shallow?) trouble?

  21. Boppie says:

    I LOVE it when people pick a theme and stick to it…swamp, check. Trash bag bathing suit and sarong, check. Mutant but handsome swamp man’s love child, check. :D

  22. J says:

    Tsk. That is a perfectly nice wetland.

  23. Harry says:

    Good grief!! What were they thinking?? Looks like plastic garbage bags.

  24. jeff says:

    I think the guy deserves some credit. He got a pregnant woman to wrap herself in blue plastic, wade into murky water and pose. My hat is off to him!

  25. LT says:

    Nothing sexy about wearing a plastic bag in a swamp. Not really awkward, just ridiculous.

  26. Steph says:

    Is that blue Saran Wrap?

  27. meri says:

    barefoot and pregnant! but certainly in love…

  28. Alexandria Lagos-Tyler says:

    Wow!!!! You should some of the ones my bro and sis in-law went to do. I think it’s up there in the awkward category. Only this lady is at least pretty!

  29. kaitlyn says:

    nice foil wrap haha

  30. Chris P says:

    Hefty,Hefty, Hefty

  31. Amber says:

    The picture theme is ridiculous, as well as her plastic bag thing….like the whole idea here is ridiculous. But I will say, she is one beautiful mom to be and they are a really good looking couple :)

  32. BECKY says:

    What the…? Why?!

  33. Casey says:

    Is she supposed to be a mermaid? Can they even get pregnant?

  34. Roo says:

    Wait–is she wearing garbage bags? Maybe some sort of tarps?

  35. splashsos says:

    I think its actually a sweet pic. and its not really awkward except them standing in the water but maybe thats where the baby was conceived =)

    • Miffy says:

      In a muddy, slimy swamp? Gosh, I hope not. You never know what kind of tiny little invading things are swimming around. *shudder*

  36. Lilac says:

    Did she sacrifice the family’s solar pool cover for her outfit?

  37. zuma says:

    why the hell is she wearing a trash bag

  38. Sandi says:

    It’s not a bad pic really. The swamp is odd……what I find more disturbing is the blue saran wrap she is wearing.

  39. Lisa says:

    Nothing says sexy like black socks on a man wearing shorts and a blue plastic garbage bag covering the woman’s naughty bits.

  40. Debbie says:

    He’s thinking about basketball, shes thinking about KFC lol!

  41. hereintx says:

    is that tropical outfit made of garbage bags? I swear that’s a garbage bag tied around her breasts!

  42. Kathy says:

    Love the dry cleaning bag ensem.

  43. Rob says:

    Swamp-thing got himself a BABE!

  44. Eric says:

    Pregnant mermaid?

  45. Chris F says:

    Is that a blue plastic bag?

  46. Leslie says:

    LOL!!! Good idea – wrap yourself in an iridescent garbage bag, stand knee-deep in swamp water, and do your best impersonation of a movie poster from 1940. PERFECT – the kid’s gonna love it.

  47. Wow… I’m just flabbergasted…

  48. Tracy says:

    I think it’s classy the way the sun reflecting off her mylar top tastefully obscures her nipple.

  49. Karin says:

    It looks like that dress is made out of blue Saran Wrap. Nice.

  50. Leigh says:

    Why is she wearing plastic bags?
