Why You Should Get the Maternity Photos - Rochester, Michigan - Maternity & Family Photographer

Sure, maybe I’m biased. I’m a photographer selling my photography service, after all. But, I have so many other reasons why I think you should book that Maternity Photo Session!

Nine short months.

Yes, at times, it feels like it’s dragging on forever. The constant peeing and frequent discomfort can be annoying, but nine months really does go by in the blink of an eye.

Your body is a freaking miracle…you’re growing a human! You WILL look back on that very brief time and think how amazing it was that you grew a person inside of you. And, I think you will really like to have a few great pictures of that time in your life. I’m not talking bathroom-mirror selfies, Mama. I’m talking about photos that truly capture your beautiful glow, the way your husband looks at you, the way your toddler looks at that belly. :)

It’s More Affordable Than You Think

I can’t speak for all photographers, but many do offer discounted maternity photography in conjunction with a newborn session….including myself! You can head to my Pricing Page for further details, and you’ll find that I offer a maternity photo session for only $125 when you also book your upcoming newborn photography session with me. That is the lowest session fee that I offer! I don’t want cost to get in the way of anyone getting amazing maternity photos. It’s THAT important! :) When you book maternity & newborn photos together, it works out to be a really great deal.

Your Future Baby Will Thank You

If you already have kids, you know that they LOVE looking at old pictures of themselves. They will definitely get a kick out of seeing pictures when they were in your belly. If you are putting a baby book together, you will definitely want to include a few of your maternity photos.

When To Schedule?

This is the most common question I get asked about Maternity Photography. In my opinion, you should capture the later part of pregnancy when that baby bump is bumping :) but before that last month when things start getting a tad uncomfortable.

You also don’t want to wait until the final month jusssst in case baby decides to make their debut early. That was the case for the Mama in these photos! We captured her maternity photos just in the nick of time before baby was born a month early!

Right around the 30 week mark is a great time to capture your maternity photos. Make sure to reach out a couple months prior to ensure photographer availability, and don’t forget to also schedule your newborn session at that time (I like to shoot newborn photos within the first 3 weeks of life).
