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