Maternity Photography Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a good time to schedule maternity photos?
Most maternity photographers suggest scheduling your maternity session soon after you’ve announced the exciting news to friends and family! This will give them ample time to find a great day that works for both of you. It’s typical to take maternity photos around 7 to 9 months into pregnancy, when you are showing.
Should I bring several outfits to my maternity session?
Most photographers recommend wearing two to four outfits during your maternity session. You should bring a backup outfit in case you don’t feel good in your planned outfit.
When planning my maternity outfit, what should I take into account?
It is recommended that you wear clothing that you feel comfortable in as well as something that makes you feel beautiful. Form-fitting tops that aren’t black or white will provide an ideal backdrop for your baby bump. As a final tip, wear a well-fitting bra that provides support. Make sure your bra is fitting perfectly before your session to avoid discomfort or lumps.
Where is the best place for us to take pictures?
Locations for taking photographs vary depending on the type of session. During maternity and gender reveal sessions, your photographer can make use of natural light via on-location outdoor photography. You can do this in a beautiful pasture, a quaint park, in the woods or even in an urban area.
Can my child or partner be included in the photographs?
Sure! It’s not unusual for photographers to take photos of mom, dad, and your other children during a session. The two of you will usually be the stars of the day, but it is equally important to take some photos with the whole family as well.
