Pregnancy photography: When is best?

A question we get asked often is when it is best to photograph a pregnancy?

Every woman is unique, and thus every pregnancy is unique. The best time for you depends on a couple of factors. Firstly it is key that we don’t leave it too late. Unfortunately my own sister in law missed out because she was booked with us for her pregnancy shoot and needed an emergency caesarean the weekend before. Too early and the bump may not be showing as much as you would like it to.

So generally we suggest around the 36th week mark of your pregnancy is the prefect time to have photos taken. The bump is still nice and high and round before the baby starts to turn and the bump drops awaiting the delivery. . That said, if you feel that you are large earlier than that then by all means book you session sooner, you know your body the best. I would strongly recommend not leaving it any later than 3 weeks before your due date, or you may miss out like my sister in law.
