As a Maternity/Newborn Photographer, the one question I hear over and over again is, ” When is the best time to have pregnancy photos taken?” The answer to this questions varies so much, but potential maternity photo clients always need guidance related to timing.

To help my clients feel more comfortable with scheduling their sessions, I wrote a quick, 28-page guide, which includes examples of my photos of clients at various stages in their pregnancy, between 22 to 39 weeks.
