Pictures Of Russian Parents To Be Will Warm Your Heart

Jana Romanova's photography series 'Waiting' packs serious aesthetic and emotional punch. Taking aerial images of expecting parents (who are also friends), Romanova beautifully captures the dynamic love that exists between young couples about to have a child. Rather than take live action shots, Romanova captures her couples in the early hours of the morn, while they are fast asleep, in order to photograph her subjects at their serene, vulnerable, and honest. The result is a series of images that resonate with warmth and love, as the unique relationship of each couple is wholly demonstrated through physicality and without conscious restraint.

Romanova's inspiration for 'Waiting' came when she realized how nearly all of her friends were getting married and would soon to be having children. Noticing the drastic change in her social life, Romanova turned to photography to aid in the transition. She decided to take her photos on early weekend mornings in order to see her friends at times "when people don't really care about their appearance and one can see their attitude to each other and to this life that is growing inside their family." Check out the rest of 'Waiting' below.
