Believe it or not our biggest question when booking Maternity photoshoots is "What is the best time/ week to take maternity photos of my baby belly?" The answer is whenever you feel ready and feel the moment you want to capture your baby belly is.
Typically we love to shoot between 28 - 36 weeks. We believe that's the time where the belly shines and you're absolutely glowing. The belly between those weeks has a nice round shape. During this time frame the expectant mom still feels comfortable enough for a portrait session.
Before 28 weeks, your baby bump will not be as visible to most people. After 36 weeks, the belly starts to feel heavy and the idea of a session can seem tiring and the baby will probably have started to move downward and being tiring on the mom to be.
If you are expecting twins or multiples, doing maternity photos during your second trimester is best. The belly when carrying more than one baby will be rounder sooner and will give that perfect baby belly look.
Our goal for your maternity session is to capture essence of your pregnancy and the glow that your baby brings you, the magic of the body that it is able to grow and nourish a baby is a miracle and we want to capture that for you to cherish for a lifetime.
