Get Featured: James Moreton
James shares with us a very personal project, documenting the the highs and lows of his wife’s pregnancy. Come and check it out.

The Work:

This is a series of pictures documenting my wife’s pregnancy from start to finish that I completed earlier this year; hopefully portraying the highs, the lows, the apprehension, the joy and everything in between. I wanted to capture the emotions of this interesting and special time in an intimate way, hopefully the viewer can get an idea of the roller coaster ride that we went through.



About Me:

I work as a Software Sales Consultant, but film photography is my passion. For me, photography is a form of escapism and a way to jog the memory. I first picked up my mates Pentax MX 15 years ago – the camera was intriguing and I loved the feel of it, loading the film and the snap of the shutter. I then got my own and loved taking pictures of friends and trying out different techniques.


Over the years I ‘went digital’ before seeing the light and coming back full circle to film. I now shoot mostly Ilford HP5 and develop all negatives at home. Setting up a darkroom in order to make prints is the next step for me (I just need to find the right space to make my own!). I am deeply interested in street and documentary photography and fuel this with an ever growing collection of photography books.

    These are wonderful. Great personal project. 5th image down is my favourite.

    Thank you for sharing the images and I enjoyed many of them, but perhaps I’m having a difficult time understanding the ‘highs and lows of pregnancy’ from the images. What does the blurry light in a yard picture have to do with pregnancy? Same with the foggy road? Aside from the last image with the baby in the hospital (and possibly #3 touching her stomach), there isn’t a single image of a baby bump, ultrasound, crib/baby preparation, tears, angst, joy, or anything really baby related.

    So I’m not getting any of the “highs, the lows, the apprehension, the joy and everything in between” that you’ve stated this series is supposed to be about. The set would all work just as well as standalone images if pregnancy was never mentioned.

    Either way, thanks for sharing and I still enjoyed many of your images!

    I think this is good stuff. Some folks seem to want ‘literal’ images, as if everything needs to be spood-fed to them. If these images show us how you both felt, then that justifies them.

    I also really like #5 (your wife in the shower). It’s very moody and almost gives the impression that she’s in an asylum! But that is the point, isn’t it? :-)

    I also liked the first photo. The second is kind of cool, like something out of a David Lynch movie or something. ‘Through the darkness of future past, the magician longs to see; One chants out between two worlds, “Fire, Walk With Me”.’
