Best time to do a Maternity Session (around 30 weeks)


Best time for Maternity Session

The best time to do maternity session is around 30 to 33 weeks. At this stage the belly bump is showing nicely and it is not too close to the due date. Earlier than 30 weeks the stomach might not be as round and it might not show properly in the photos. Sometimes the session happens later like in this fun maternity session with a toddler AKA “Big Brother.” However, usually maternity session is scheduled around 30-33 weeks.

Home and Outdoor Location

The maternity session can take place at the comfort of your home and/or chosen location. Natural light studio is also available. Usually couples like to combine an indoor location, such as their  home and then continue outdoors weather permitting. Doing a session at home provides additional benefit as this is where the baby will be coming home to and will include photos of the nursery.

Making your session personal to you

This beautiful maternity session below started at home with hair and makeup prior to the session.

I loved capturing Lindsey and Matt’s love and connection as they were about to welcome the new member of their family. So happy we included the family dog in their maternity photos. Another personal thing that we included are wine glasses as Matt and Lindsay  love wine tasting and were married at a wedding venue in Napa Valley, CA.  After getting indoor photos, we continued outdoors to the Van Vleck House & Gardens in Montclair NJ. Below are some of my favorite portraits which are beautifully displayed in their Fine Art Heirloom Album as well as Acrylic Fine Art Prints on the walls of  their home.
