An Artist's Pregnancy In 10 Striking Photos

Some artists address the "forever" feeling of pregnancy with time-lapse videos that condense the baby-making process into neat, digital bundles of joy. Photographer Sophie Starzenski, by contrast, shows pregnancy's steady, beautiful progression from beginning to end in "Proyecto Pyokko," a series of maternity pictures that she describes in simple terms as "40 weeks and a mirror."

The Buenos Aires-based artist told HuffPost Parents over email that "Pyokko" is a nickname for her now-3-month-old son, Simon -- whose disarmingly cute baby face we get to see in due course.
