Pregnancy goes by quickly and its an incredible moment to capture if you can. Some women plan a traditional maternity photoshoot and some women choose to capture it in a more intimate way with a maternity boudoir photoshoot. If you are diligently documenting your pregnancy and want to plan a professional maternity session, when is the best time? The exact timing can vary from each woman but my overall recommendations is between 28-32 weeks with 30 weeks typically being the most ideal time.
If you experienced more physical side effects or discomfort in previous pregnancies, typically even earlier is better. Any photoshoot typically takes some physical stamina for posing, changing and so on, so you want to choose a time you think you will still be comfortable and energized to be able to enjoy the experience.
You should start planning your session at least a few weeks to a few months prior to when you want it to take place so make sure you start your research early!
