When to take maternity photos

Columbus MS photographer

There are so many things to prepare for the arrival of a new baby! The nursery, the hospital bag, the baby shower. But don’t forget about your maternity pictures! This sweet time deserves to be captured-you’ll love looking back on this time with your babe in the womb. One of the most frequently asked questions is “when should I take my maternity photos?”. Not to fret mama, I’ve got you covered!

My recommendation is to take your photos between 28 and 34 weeks. This timeframe allows your bump enough time to pop! It also allows you to still remain comfortable and mobile. Typically, the closer you get to your due date, the more uncomfortable you may feel. It also gives you peace that you’ve taken the photos in advance. You never know if baby will come early! Photos during these weeks will also make it easier for your to find something to wear that you feel beautiful in.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful as you begin to plan for your maternity photos. If you’d like to inquire about services with me and learn more about my maternity and newborn bundle, I’d love to hear from you!
