When is the best time for maternity photography?
The best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot is when the belly is large, but they’re not in the The-Baby-Is-Coming period! This is typically in Months 7 and 8. I usually avoid Month 9 altogether because you don’t know if the baby will decide to make an early appearance. If you are a first-time mother, you could more comfortably choose a date in Month 8. If you are a woman who has already had a child, then I’d be safe and go with Month 7.
Generally, I book sessions months in advance, you know, it is never too early to book! Good planning makes the perfect photography. I suggest 3rd month of your pregnancy, so we have plenty of time to prepare for location, clothing, creative ideas, etc.
