New Photo Series Nails The Specific Struggles Only Pregnant Women Know

Accurate.

Photographer Danielle Guenther has a knack for capturing real-life moments in parenting. Now with her new series, "What the BUMP!?" the mom-slash-photographer takes on pregnancy and all of its realness.

"Pregnancy is such an incredible phase, but it’s a real struggle," Guenther told The Huffington Post. "Everything that seems so simple is now a task."

Guenther often reflects on what it was like to be pregnant with her now 6-year-old son, Lochlan. Inspired by her past pregnancy and the struggle of accomplishing everyday tasks like folding laundry or buying groceries, she created "What the BUMP!?" to capture these moments.

For one of her shots, Guenther featured a friend who, past her due date, was doing yoga.

"She was past due about five or six days," the photographer said. "I told her 'before you do anything I’m grabbing my camera.' We got out our yoga mats."

The expectant mom went into labor hours after doing the shoot.
