Will anyone be getting them?

Last time, I purchased a package that included maternity photos, and then newborn photos when baby arrived. I LOVE them, but I don't know if mat-photos are necessary this time.

I may just go with newborn photos perhaps... not sure yet!

I just know that they cost me SO much money before...convincing DH is tough! lol

I think I will, only because it has been me, my daughter and my boyfriend (not her dad) as a family for so long - that having our first baby together and giving Averie her first sibling is a big change. I'd like to have some pictures of the three of us during the pregnancy. Newborn photos I'll definitely get.

No thanks, no maternity pics for me. I don't even do the baby bump photos thing...I feel shy about it for some reason? I will however get newborn pics this time around. It wasn't really a "thing" when my son was born, and I really regret not having some taken. Now it seems like all my friends with a cannon or Nikon are "professional newborn photographers" so I have a lot of options!

That's funny because I always wondered what people do with them. My thinking has always been -- why would I want to pay money for photos of myself looking fat and at my worst? I would never display them in my home, so what's the point? lol. But maybe I'd feel different if I were tiny and had a cute, non-stretch mark filled pretty bump like yours.

Instead I spend WAY too much $$$ on newborn photos, but I love them so much.

My thoughts too, lol. I also spend a ton on newborn photos---only to find them in a large Sterilite container years later, lol.

Well last time I got some done because my husbands cousin is a photographer. She has since moved though and I dont like the idea of spending a ton of money on them so we will try some of our own I think and maybe do family/kids/newborn pics afterwards.

Urchin - if I were going to look like you at 8 months pregnant, I'd frame them and have them on display too!!Nope, none for me. Not because I wouldn't like them, just can't really afford them. Definitely going to spend a pretty penny on newborn photos though!!!

I'm still debating. My cousin is a photographer and is doing the newborn pics for sure, but I can't decide if I want to spend the money on maternity ones. Part of me says GO FOR IT, it to two and a half years to get here, the other part is scared to spend money incase I hate how I look

I will probably do my own with the mixture of using my tripod and directing a friend as to what to do. Or I may just ask my neighbor to do them if he doesn't charge too much. I will definetly be photographing the baby myself, but I will also buy ones they do at the hospital.

I plan to get them done and I am excited about it DH is a photographer so we usually trade off with one of his best friends who is also a photographer for photo shoots. I am not positive what I will do with them yet but I know I want them.
