When's the best time to take maternity photos?
The most common question I receive is, 'When's the best time to take maternity photos?' Many photographer’s will say the same and that’s, that the perfect timing for your maternity photoshoot is typically between 29 and 34 weeks of your pregnancy. This is when your baby bump is at its peak, and we absolutely need to capture those stunning maternity moments before you're on baby duty. Imagine going into labor and missing out on the fabulous photoshoot we're gonna have – that would be a bummer!
Now, if you're itching to start a bit earlier, no worries at all! Just remember, it's all about showing off that beautiful bump, so go for those snug, solid-colored dresses that accentuate your curves. Patterns? Nah, they'll hide that baby bump glory we want to capture! So, go ahead, flaunt that bump!
As your pregnancy journey unfolds, you might start gravitating toward the comfy yet stylish vibe of flowy or fitted dresses. And let me tell you, that baby bump of yours? It's a work of art, and we are all about showcasing its beauty! Whether you're feeling breezy in flowy fabrics or rocking the fitted look, we're here to capture every moment of that radiant glow. So, let's embrace your bump!
By the way, I'll be going into more detail about 'What to Wear' in a future post, so stay tuned for that.
For now, my friendly advice is to secure your session well in advance. But seriously, you don't want to be that last-minute mama-to-be who's like, "I'm due in a month, can you fit me in?" Because, girl, by then, I'll probably be booked solid, and we don't want any FOMO moments.
My advice? Plan ahead, like when you're around 4-5 months pregnant, start scouting for the perfect photographer – and hey, I just happen to be one! 😉 Lock in that session early so you can secure your spot and have peace of mind that we'll capture your maternity portraits.
Let's make your maternity photoshoot a truly memorable experience!
