How Babies are Made.

 Canadian photographer Patrice Laroche surely will have

no trouble explaining to his kids about the birds and the bees.

During his wife Sandras pregnancy, the artist

created this hilarious explanatory photo series titled

“How to Make a Baby”. The creative couple planned and

carried out their project throughout the whole period

of 9 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.






About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
