Maternity photos
Whose getting them done, and when... and I need some help.

First I will say that I really regret not getting any done with my first pregnancy. So I strongly encourage everyone to get some done!

Here's my question: When should I get them done? The issue I'm trying to take into account is I get a HUGE belly so i think i should get them done earlier then normal so the main focus of the picture isn't "omg her belly is huge" and more the whole picture. :rolleyes:

Re: Maternity photos
I never have gotten them done. :p I do have a photographer friend who does maternity shots, so I'll ask her.

Re: Maternity photos
ive had them done both times. one of my BFF is a photographer, so she does stuff for us for really cheap :) we get pictures taken quite a lot because she likes to use my kids for promotions...so ill definitely get them done this time...maybe in oct when the leaves are really pretty. whenever she tells me to be somewhere :lol:

Re: Maternity photos
This is my photographer friend's answer

My opinion is to do them whenever you're comfortable doing them. From the end of your second trimester to the middle of your third is a great window. A lot of times, women find themselves more comfortable in their skin during that window. there is no wrong time though, I've done maternity pictures mere weeks or days before a due date.

I booked my maternity shoot for October 19th :) I figure by 33 weeks my belly will be huge and Im excited for the colors of fall.

Re: Maternity photos
I did them with my first and will definitely be getting them again. I think we had ours at 34 weeks. Our photographer suggested we not wait much longer than that since you start getting uncomfy and stuff after that. For us that was the perfect time.

Re: Maternity photos
I'm doing them in the fall when the leaves change. My sister is trying to build her portfolio so she's doing them for me for free.

Re: Maternity photos
Never have, but I so wanted a mold with my first baby! Didn't happen. Now I'm so heavy I can't imagine doing pics or a mold.

Well, I have a few impromptu pics taken at my in-laws by my BIL during my first pregnancy, if they count. I do like them!

Re: Maternity photos
I've never had them done and don't plan to. I think I have at least one pregnant pic of myself from each pregnancy. I don't particularly love how I look pregnant. The belly is ok but the other bloating I don't love.

Re: Maternity photos
I like Brittanie's friends answer.

If I can find a photographer for on the cheaper side who can do them tastefully outside *i've seen some really bad ones done on some of those bad photography sites* I think I might want too..
