When is it best to take your maternity portraits?

With the posting of a few maternity sessions in January, I had a few people ask this question.

So I thought I would write and let everyone know.

When is the best time for your maternity session?

Pregnancy is hard for a lot of reasons. But the #1 thing I like to do during your maternity session is to make the mama feel beautiful. No matter how she feels in real life; during this session, she is the queen.

I like to schedule these sessions between 28-32 weeks. Some mamas feel great later in their pregnancy so we can schedule past this time. However, towards the end of pregnancy bloating and water gain is more prevalent. It is always easier for me to make you look bigger in photoshop, than to make you look smaller. So doing your session early on in your pregnancy is preferable.

When ever you choose to do your maternity session, we would be happy to celebrate your upcoming arrival with you.
