My recommended ideal timing for maternity photography is between the 33th and 36th weeks of your pregnancy. This usually means you have a very well defined bump – any earlier in the pregnancy and your images won’t be as striking – but we are not risking the last few days of your term when anything could happen – although I have photographed pregnant ladies on and after their due dates so please don’t be put off if you are having last-minute thoughts about having pregnancy photographs!
For your comfort you come to my studio for the session, usually the majority of it will take place there for your privacy, but you should you wish to do so we can also visit a second location, perhaps a park or woods for some contrasting images. I will discuss clothing and outfits with you beforehand and will also bring a number of fabrics and props with me. I usually recommend that your partner is also present so we can include him in a some of the images, if you and he would like to do so.
