If you are on the fence about booking a maternity photo session, just do it. This is such a miraculous time in a woman's life. Not only is your beautiful body changing to a new and equally beautiful shape, it is growing a little person or maybe more than one little persons. Growing a baby is beautiful and is worth capturing in all its beauty.
Hands down, a dress is going to be the best choice for your maternity photos. There are so many options out there, so you can be sure to get just the style you are looking for. Find something flowy and comfortable. You are pregnant after all. You should be comfortable and a dress should allow you to be. Two words for you, no waistband. ;) Also, ask me if I have a dress that works for you from my client closet.
When should I book maternity photos?
If you are having a regular pregnancy, planning a maternity photo session three to six weeks before your due date is best. Once you have decided on a photographer, contact them during your second trimester. When you book your maternity session, you will also want to book your newborn session.
When it comes to posing, remember you have hired a photographer, so trust them. Hopefully, one reason you chose your photographer was because you trust them and love the poses and photos they have produced.
Who should be at the photo session?
This is something you should think about. Is this something you want to have just you? It is a special time to share with your husband and have him in some of the photos as well. Some of my clients made turned their session into a family session and included the whole crew. This is really a decision you have to make. All are beautiful and meaningful.
Cherish this moment
I really hope you plan a maternity photo session. While in the moment of being pregnant it can seem uncomfortable and rough. Capturing your time as an expecting mother and the love you have for this little person you haven't even met, is something I know you will cherish, especially after you have moved on from this stage.
