When Should You Get Maternity Photos?

Don’t know when to schedule your maternity photos? Here’s a few tips on on choosing the right time to show off that baby bump!

Every pregnancy is different and every photographer has their recommendations, but I usually recommend between 30-34 weeks. You should have a beautiful enough bump to show off while still feeling comfortable. If you are expecting twins or more, you may want to schedule earlier than 30 weeks. 

Since you are working with a timeframe, it is always best to book your session ahead of time. Wait until after your 12th week but don’t wait until last minute so you can secure a date. This also gives time for you and your photographer to plan your photo session. Whether you are interested in maternity photos outdoors or a studio session, you’ll want to discuss maternity outfits and colors.

Pregnancy is a wonder. Your body is going through so many changes in creating a life. Photographers love to help embrace these changes and show off how incredible your body is! Whether this is your first baby or not, at some point it’s something worth documenting before it’s over.
