Maternity session

When should you do a maternity shoot?

If you are counting by weeks, schedule your session when you are around 30 weeks pregnant. If you take maternity photos after your eighth month of pregnancy, your maternity might be uncomfortable. You want to avoid taking photographs when your belly feels too heavy, usually after 35 weeks.

Tips for a great photoshoot

  • As a photographer, I often capture maternity photos. It is no rare experience to work with a couple wearing their best.
  • Try a maxi dress and solids are the best.
  • Choose two outfits for more ideas.
  • Bring something for details showing the sex of the baby, such as shoes, socks, 3D photos, or a teddy bear.
