How babies are made in Canada

A friend sent this. I found it hilarious.

Here's the text accompanying the photos. (Please note, Patrice is a man's name in Europe, which led to some comical misunderstandings with a German employer I had in college. But I digress.)

Canadian photographer Patrice Laroche surely will have no trouble explaining to his kids about the birds and the bees.
During his wife Sandra Denis’ pregnancy, the artist created hilarious explanatory photo series titled "How to Make a Baby."
The creative couple planned and carried out their project throughout the whole period of nine months, taking pictures in the exact same settings as Sandra’s belly expanded. The pregnancy saga of Sandra and Patrice basically denounces all the traditional cabbage and the stork stories.


  1. Patrice,


    I ask my parents when I was a little kid, Where did babies come from. My Dad said, son here in Texas them things (babies) come from "Cactus Patches"

  5. Adorable! You can see the love between them!

  6. That is so cute and creative.

  7. style.

    But i'm a bit baffled to learn Patrice is a mens name in europe. Around here it's considered female. France ok...but Germany?

    The male version of Patrice would be Patrick here.

  8. Showed
    The hubby and said "oh my goodness
    We have been doing it wrong for years"! ;)

  9. Loved it and had to share with family!

  10. And very funny that the "explosion" blew one of Daddy's shoes off. Nice touch.

  11. That's the way we did it, seven times. Except we used a bicycle pump. Much more work. Dad was exhausted. Too bad Dad had to do so much work. LOL

  12. I'm totally going to steal this idea! Wouldn't that make a great comic-strip style birth announcement?!


  13. I used expensive diapers for the first 6 months, and they seemed fine. The last two batches in the larger sizes have had major problems. They split, leaving gooey silica all over my son and his bedclothes. It is a good thing he was wearing a one-piece, or else the silica would have been all over his bed. I thought I had gotten a bad batch, but the new box did the same thing. I think it is dangerous and negligent of them to have defective diapers out there. I'm using a new brand from here on out.
