Other than your self portraits do you plan on having maternity photos done?
What kind do you want to do? Conservative, sexy, a little of both?

I am having them done at 32 weeks. My hubby's cousin is an awesome photographer. I will definitely just be having conservative pics, but I will show my tummy. I would never classify myself as sexy and don't want to try to look unnatural.

She's also photographing the baby when he's about a week old.

I would really like to have them done this time. I have a friend that is a photographer and really reasonably priced. I'd like her to do them plus newborn pics too. I would love to go to journalistic style photographer and do nudes because I find them to be so beautiful, but I can't afford them.

I have a friend who is a photographer, he does mostly pet photos (he did photography for westminster dog show that just happened) but he has little side projects. He has one project now where he is doing artistic nude shots of women who are not "pretty" by fashion or society standards. They aren't really nudes...I mean you are naked but you don't show your goods, they are artistically covered.

He has had several women participate in his project including very tattooed women, bigger gals, very skinny girls, older women, scars or women who've lost their breast or breasts to cancer.

So when he found out I was pregnant, he begged me if I would join his project and I agreed. Now he stalks my belly on facebook cause he is waiting for that perfect time to do it.

He said he will also take conservative pics i can show my family because I am participating in his project.

We're planning on doing them, but we can't afford a photographer, so we're going to go to the beach and DH will take some of me, and then the tripod will take some of us together, unless we can talk a friend into coming along with us. We would rather save the money and have newborn pictures taken professionally.

My friend is a photographer and I am sure she will do them for me. I have always wanted some sexy ones but I don't think I will ever do it.

You should, even if you don't share them you will regret not having them later

I didn't with my first. I only have one pic taken by DH in our kitchen 3 days before his birth. Sounds really illogical but I was afraid of jinxing myself if I took any. I know, lame but its because I did start doing progressive belly shots with my first two pregnancies and I lost both. They were both early losses ( turns out I have low progesterone levels) but it still made me panicky during my preg with DS1. I just wanted to get through it.

But with this one I am scheduled for some mid april and am including DS1 so I don't feel as guilty since I didn't with him. So obviously I'm going conservative lol, I don't do sexy well anyway

I think it is a great idea. I am not sure I would be comfortable though.

I won't be doing them. Just not in the budget but I am actually taking pictures of my belly this time around... I didn't do that in previous pregnancies, and I seriously regret it. I would have liked to compare them.

That would be a big fat NO on maternity pictures. Maybe if I looked as cute as Karen78 or PamelaBurk or Gen88 (I could go on with examples). I haven't even taken a belly pic. I still feel just gross and so not like myself.

I want to do some. But it depends on if I ever have a rounded out belly! Right now I don't know that I'd want pictures, haha. I haven't taken a belly pic in a while, I feel like it doesn't look that different and I don't look pregnant. I need to go back to taking them. My husband even asked me about it the other day. Only took him like 2 months to realize I had stopped asking him to take one every week! I've taken a few myself in the mirror, but I guess I should go back to having him take them!

I have my shoot next Saturday. I'm just doing one natural look with a long dress. I might do a jeans outfit but jeans are very unflattering for me these days. But I'm sure she can make it look good. I'm also incorporating a photo of my husband and a 3d US photo in my pictures as well. Can't wait!

Maternity pics in general are sooooooo not my style at all. I doubt I'll have any done at all. I'm not even doing bump progression shots.
