Oh yes! For sure!! I can't wait! Do you plan to? Did you get maternity shots with your children? I did with my son, but I never received the pictures. My photographer was great friends with my sister and gave her the disc of all my pictures. I never knew... and later asked my sister when I'd be getting my photos (from maternity shots, baby shower, AND birth) and my sister said, "oops! I forgot to tell you.. she gave me the disc.. now where is it?" And to this day I haven't received them. So definitely getting more maternity shots next time.
Absolutely. Maternity and newborn. I think is an important thing to document, so I get them done every time. We have actually had them done with three different photographers and I have been pleased each time. We always include the family in the maternity shots, not just my belly. But I get some of those too. And then we do a newborn shoot within the first two weeks. Again, not something I regret at all. It's well worth the money to me. And I am not talking these $600 photo sessions either. We keep it reasonable (under $100). And get the discs.
I have DH take photos every 4 weeks at the beginning, then every other week once I hit about the halfway point. Towards the end I was doing every week My stepdad did some shots when I was pg with DD1, but he didn't like the way they turned out so he never gave them to me, he said they were that bad...lol!
I will definitely do mat pictures. I have them for both daughters and will do them if and when I have a third. When I was pregnant with dd2 I did weekly pictures too. I will definitely do that again as well. I loved seeing the progression!
I never got Maternity pics taken. Just the bathroom mirror tummy growth pics. I have a FEW pic of me pregnant with my older children, but just a few and I'd be ****** if I knew where they were...
I think that now that we are better off financially I would like to have them. I know I will regret not getting them some day if I don't. Plus if I DO have a fall baby, I'd have a summer/fall photo session, so that would be pretty awesome!
For those who have had them, do you mind sharing if you have the pics?
Interested in having a home birth? Planning a home birth? Want to join a secret FB group to chat with other HBers without everyone finding out? PM me.
Well, we are planning on getting married while I'm pregnant, so there will be those pictures! I also want to get maternity and newborn pictures done. This will be DF's first and maybe my last so definitely a big deal.
I think I am personally going to love the pregnancy belly--finally an excuse not to be embarrassed by a protruding belly! But I don't think I'll do deliberate portraits until I have a little one to be the star of the pictures. Still, you can't keep my mom and her camera away...
