Did you know that more babies are born per day in September in the US than in any other month?

July has more births in total because it has one more day than September, but the highest rate per day belongs to the Harvest Month. How apt.

Our friends at, the very excellent website of the San Francisco Chronicle, recently ran a photo contest with this same theme. You can see the results here. So we're stealing the idea.

This won't be one of our monthly contests, however; it's a Photo Challenge, meaning we'll post all the photos we receive (well, the clean ones, anyway) in full-screen galleries with no judging involved.

We're looking for photos that meet our usual criteria for good composition, lighting, and creativity, but for this challenge we're also looking for those extra qualities of joy, delight, well-being, contentment -- and maybe even the discomfort -- that attends a pregnancy.

The bellies do NOT have to be bare, by the way. Oh, and we'll feature some of your photos on our Moms site.

One photo per photographer, please. E-mail your submissions to

Looking forward to a lot of great photos! Here are the photos we've received so far.

Here are some of our previous Photo Challenges:

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
