When Is the Best Time to Get Your Maternity Shoot Done?

Congratulations—you have a little one you’ll soon be welcoming into the world! Now’s the time to think about maternity photos: what you want to wear, who you want to take the photographs, and exactly when you should get them done. That last one can be tricky, but we have answers for you.

Not Too Early

Any sooner than 29 or 30 weeks into your pregnancy is probably going to be too early for great maternity photoshoot results (unless you’re pregnant with more than one bundle of joy, or your belly is a bit larger than average). The point of quality maternity photographs is to celebrate the belly—so you want to make sure we can see it in all its glory! Book your maternity photoshoot for too soon, and your little bump may be a bit too little.

Not Too Late

Let’s be honest: we don’t want you popping at the seams and ready to get that baby out of your body when you come in for your maternity shoot. For that reason (and many others), it’s suggested that you don’t wait until after 35 weeks to book your maternity photoshoot with a local photographer. You likely won’t be comfortable during the shoot, which is absolutely no fun—and photo sessions should be all about fun. And if we want to get dramatic, the truth is you could go into labor during the shoot. Wouldn’t that make for some interesting maternity photographs?

The Sweet Spot

That ideal time is between 29 and 35 weeks into your pregnancy. This way, your belly will be prominent enough to really claim the spotlight, but it won’t be so big that you’ll be uncomfortable and not able to enjoy the maternity photoshoot experience.
