When is the best time for maternity photos?

When is the best time for maternity photos?

I love photographing all types of maternity sessions! I offer studio, location and lifestyle maternity sessions in the comfort of your own home. Not every expecting mum will want a maternity photoshoot or may even feel a bit shy about it. I actually don’t like having my photos taken so I totally understand and my aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. There is a lot of changes happening to your body and all those emotions, it’s such a big time in your life and a new chapter. Documenting this new chapter with a Maternity photoshoot is beautiful, I love maternity sessions and all the emotions that show through the photos.

Hiring a professional maternity photographer is a lot better than relying on your phone. They have the years of experience with posing and lighting and editing and not to mention a very expensive camera. I also have Maternity dresses that can be borrowed for use in my studio as well as some beautiful flower crowns. The flower crowns are great for location maternity photoshoots taking place in a woodlands or park.

How many weeks pregnant should you be for a maternity photoshoot?

The best time for maternity photos is when you are around 30 – 34 weeks pregnant. At time your belly should be nice and round and a bit bigger showing your bump beautifully! Every expecting mum is different though, so we can schedule your session when it’s best for you. You don’t want to leave it too late to book in your maternity session, you want to be as comfortable as possible.

About my pregnancy sessions

  • For studio maternity photoshoots they are held in my North London studio in Barnet. Otherwise they can be at your home or a beautiful location
  • My sessions last about 1 hour, I find this is plenty of time for maternity sessions
  • Partners and other siblings are more than welcome 🙂
  • It’s a £95 deposit and this will then be taken off from your chosen maternity package. All of my prices can be found here
  • Your photos would be ready to view about 2 weeks after your session. This is when you can decide the package you would like to purchase.
