Is anyone going to get it done or have you had it done? I really want to do it this time. When's the best time in pregnancy to do it?

I say if you are going to get them done outside, do it when it's not 9000 degrees outside.

Seriously, I am going to get pictures done, probably around 7 months or so. I definitely want my belly in all it's glory, but don't want to be too close to the end and therefore uncomfortable. Really, it's all on what you want and what you're comfortable with.

I have been thinking about it. I dont' really like to have my picture taken all that much though.

If I do it will probably be some where between 26 weeks and 30 or so.

I would like to do it but I hate how I look pregnant in the face. Also I want newborn pictures so I will put my money towards that.

I'm doing some photography on the side for friends but I can't exactly do my own maternity shoot. I can't wait to do a newborn shoot tho with my new bean. I'm on the hunt for a good photographer.

I love those pictures. I plan on having some this time too.
Oh, and I looked and I was 34 weeks.

My friend from school does photography as a hobby..she offered to do this for me at 28 weeks but Im not gonna go through with it..she wants to do the artsy style with me naked wrapped in material ...If I was orig. a smaller girl I would've done it but Im not so not comfortable being naked in my photos. plus she post all her photos she take on facebook.. I don't think so!

Definitely not me, but I like looking at other people's maternity pictures.

Anna - I love the shot of you with the balloons!

If I did get them done, I'd probably wait til the fall and get them around 30 weeks. I felt the best then during my pregnancy with Eli. Not TOO huge and I felt good about my preggo body!

I want to do it, too! This is my 3rd, and possibly last pregnancy. I'm going to wait until November, as I'll be nice and huge then and it's also both of my DDs birthdays, so I'll probably get a few portraits done.

I really want to, but we're going to be in China until pretty late and by time we're in UK I think I'll have probably have reached the uncomfortable stage.

Might look into some photographers here, but the general style is a little odd (cartoon backgrounds, etc) so am really torn!

Yeah, I would NOT want the photos shared on FB! And being a bigger girl already I understand where you are coming from, but will honestly look into having my DH do a few *very conservative* photos of me when I'm further along, and wearing less because I think that the pregnant body (no matter what it's size or shape) is beautiful. And I want to be able to remember how I looked while carrying my first son or daughter.

I didn't with DD. I may set up my good camera and have DH snap a few. I'm hoping I'll get lucky and be able to have my awesome photographer SIL take a few. She did Marina's newborn shots and they were great!

Anna-I love the pumpkin shots!!!

im thinking about getting them done this time. I was thinking about waiting until the end of Nov or early Dec and use one as a Xmas card. For me, im tall and fluffy so it will be a while before i even look pg. Last time i didnt really look pg until about a month before he was born.

I'm still debating this. I think I'd like to do it because this will likely be the one and only time I'm pregnant, but it'll depend on hoe happy I am with my overall appearance come fall. If I do it I think I'll ask a friend of mine who is sort of an amateur photographer.
