Congrats! A bundle of joy is on the way. You’re going to want to do all you can to remember this special time in your life.
Pregnancy is a life-changing time that goes by so fast. If you’d like to really capture these memories, you should look into getting maternity photos done.
With this in mind, you need to know the best time to do maternity photos, in addition to other important info. To learn more, read on and get in touch if you have further questions.
To really get the most out of your maternity shoot, you have to figure out the best time to do maternity photos. This is a matter of getting the best photograph while your belly is nice and full. You also want to make sure you are still comfortable to stand on your feet for a while and move around in different poses.
In terms of the best time for the belly, the ideal time is between 28 and 35 weeks. During this time, your pregnant belly is as big and round, which makes for a beautiful photo.
As the pregnancy progresses you might start to feel uncomfortable. Scheduling your shoot for around 30 weeks is usually a safe bet. I am happy to reschedule the date for my clients if they decide they want to do it sooner or later. Towards the end of pregnancy, some swelling and water retention normally occurs, so it’s best to plan the photo shoot ahead of time when possible.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to work side by side with your photographer to get the best results.
You should come in with some ideas of your own, and also allow the photographer to bounce some ideas off of you. Make sure that you get a good feel for their personality since this is an intimate and somewhat time-consuming experience.
After scheduling your maternity photo shoot, speak to your photographer regularly to start kicking around some ideas. Think about the different styles that you really want to capture.
Look through your photographer’s portfolio to get a clear feel for what they do best, and make sure you plan toward their strengths.
If you’ve seen some maternity photos that stood out to you, don’t be afraid to show them to your photographer to see if they can replicate it.
When you’re ready to choose a photographer, the price is the most important concern for many. Just remember that this is a very important decision, and as the old saying goes you get what you pay for. There are many amateurs that pose as professionals and charge a nominal fee. Make sure to think about what is most important to you about your portraits before comparing by price.
I am happy to provide you with an idea of what your investment might look like after having a chat with you about what you are looking for. There are many different options for final products, such as wall art, heirloom albums, small print collections, and more.
When figuring out the best time to do maternity photos the best thing to do is speak to a skilled professional photographer.
