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.

Not sure. We didn't do engagement photos because I thought they were silly. I may get a portrait at one point.

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!

Oh I definitely want to do some maternity and newborn shots . Good to know we can get them for under 100. I'm lucky to know a few photographers which may help with getting a good deal!

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?

I reallllllly want to get them done this time around again, but I don't know if DH will go for it. I had them done with DD and I love them. I want them again.. hehe.

I will probably get my way. DH knows how I feel about photography.

Here is my second son (36 weeks, 8 days before I had him):



And here is my third (36 weeks, 6 days before I had her):




And three of my favorite newborn pics from our sessions (1st, 2nd, 3rd...all about 10 days old):

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...

Ashlee! Love those photos! Now I REALLY want more done (with DD involved) when we have our next baby.

Here's a couple of my pregnancy/newborn pics from our session. I miss my bellyyyy I was around 36-37 weeks when I had these done I think. And DD was 3 weeks old for her newborn pics.









The quality isn't that great ...don't have digital copies, but ahh how I love the photos we have done. I look at them all the time.
