Will you be taking any maternity pictures? If so, at what week will you be doing it?

No way! I don't like pictures of myself now, up 26 lbs! I take belly pics b/c I like to look back at the growth, but no maternity photos.

I want to, but I have no money to. I would probably do them after 32 weeks, I'm 27 and just starting to round out since i started off plus size and had a nice shelf of fat going on. They are also siting low so I want that fullness up top if I'm going to get it to be in the pics. Probably not going to happen but eh, I can dream.

Absolutely not. I neither have the energy for maternity photos, nor do I like having pictures taken of me...even at my best and I am certainly far from that these days. I haven't even yet taken a belly bump picture.

Same here as with Bri, I really want to but I don't think it will be feasible money-wise. I have one friend who I'm thinking of offering a TFP session but I don't know if he'd feel comfortable with it. He doesn't have much confidence when it comes to shooting people.

In the past I have polled clients and the consensus seems to be that the best time is between 34 and 38 weeks.

I don't plan to do maternity pics, but I do want family pics done around dds bday, which I will be very pregnant for. That would be early June... maybe 34ish weeks?

Nup... I have to admit, it's one of those things that I don't quite understand.

Nope, I really don't think I look great now and didn't do them with DD either. I still have to take a bump picture! We also really don't have the money at this time.

I think I'll splurge on newborn photos and just have a friend take a few decent ones.

I think it is so sad that so many people don't like how they look pregnant - I love it, it gives me a reason for my fat belly - lol when I was pregnant with my first son I went to the beach 2 wks before he was born in a bikini.

If I make it to 36 weeks (I'm sure I will and more) my mom will most likely take some when she gets out here but I will probably say I don't like any of them just as I did with the boys lol. We will be doing family/newborn/boys birthday pictures (June birthday and August birthday) whenever Olivia is born and those will be professionally done.

I'm not going to hire someone no, but we'll take some photos. I'll see how happy I am with the newborn photos, and if I can't get something I'm happy with my girlfriend is an amazing photog and she'll squeeze us in

I will not lie, I hate pictures of myself. I always have! I will probably never look at them if we get any. They wouldn't be for me, though. I really want them for baby, so she can see them when she grows up. There's something special there, I think. Of course I'm a photographer so I'm probably biased

I did some myself for gender reveal. I'll do some more around 34 weeks.
