When should I have my maternity photo shoot?

Updated: 6 days ago

Pregnancy is such an amazing and magical time and we think that everyone should document their journey. Having maternity photo session is a great way to capture the memories of your blossoming bump. Having a baby can be a busy and stressful time but having a bump photoshoot is a great way to take a break and document how beautiful your belly is! You could even use your images in baby shower invites!

All pregnancies are different but at around the 7-8 month mark or if you are counting in weeks, 28-35 weeks, is a good time to book in for. At this stage, you will have a nice full shape and can still move with ease but not so far along that you might have started to feel uncomfortable. If you are having twins, or more, then we recommend for you to come for your shoot at about 24 weeks.

On the day of your shoot you should come in comfortable loose clothing to avoid getting indentation marks on your tummy. For your outfits we recommend you bring a light and a dark set of underwear and you can use any of our maternity gowns. If you wish to bring your own clothes too, try to avoid bold patterns as plainer clothes make for more timeless, classic portraits. You can even go nude for a truly sensational shot!

Maternity photos are all about you and the little life you are growing inside of you. We can’t wait to meet you and your bump!
