Choosing a Photographer for Your Pregnancy Pictures
The process of choosing a photographer becomes more difficult than usual when you’re not after the usual family or wedding portrait. If you’re looking for someone who could capture you at your pregnant best, not just any photographer would do.
Tips for Choosing a Photographer for Your Pregnancy Pictures
Tip #1 Look for a pregnancy photographer who understands the essence of pregnancy. Don’t consider gender or marital status as an indication that your photographer understands what pregnancy means. Having kids doesn’t quite make the cut either. Understanding the essence of pregnancy, seeing the beauty of it and recognizing the glow of pregnant women is primarily dependent on the individual’s perspective of pregnancy regardless of who he is.
If you don’t see the same happiness you feel with your pregnancy in your photographer’s eyes then you better move on to the next one.
Tip #2 Experience is very important. Although it’s okay to good new and first-timers a try, getting your photo taken while you’re pregnant is not an entirely convenient process so it’s best that you work with a photographer with lots of experience photographing pregnant subjects. A photographer with the desired expertise won’t waste your time committing various mistakes that a first-timer could do.
Ask for the photographer’s portfolio and exact samples of pregnancy photos to know whether he has the requisite experience or not. Ask for the number of years he’s in the business and referrals.
Tip #3 Look for a pregnancy photographer with a style that matches your preferences. If you’re in love with sepia tone photographers, you won’t fall in love with the works of a photographer specializing in colored photos even if he had accepted numerous awards for his works. It’s all about style and since you’re the client, it’s your preferences that matter.
Again, ask for the photographer’s portfolio to get an idea if he can meet your expectations or not. Of course, make sure you inform him what you want as well because he could be willing to try something new in your case.
Tip #4 Although pregnant women are often described as glowing, this doesn’t mean they’re walking on sunshine all the time. Pregnancy can be an agonizing process: the added weight is unfamiliar and burdensome. There are also various pains and aches that pregnant women are exposed to during this time. As such, make sure that your photographer is willing to adapt to certain stipulations your condition could require.
If nausea often hits you during the day, you might prefer to have your photos taken at night. Will the photographer be able to do so? What if you’re confined to your home for the rest of your pregnancy? Is the photographer willing to conduct home sessions?
Tip #5 In the event that you’re willing to have your pregnancy photo taken in the studio, make sure that you look for the studio best equipped for pregnant clients like you. Look for the studio with the right service and supplies.
If you wish to have your photo taken with your children, will the staff be capable of entertaining them while you’re having your makeup on? What kind of makeup do they have? Will it be able to conceal scars or stretch marks in your body? Will they apply makeup to your belly as well? What kind of actual and digital retouching will they give you?
After having your pictures taken, does the studio have a private bathroom where you can clean up? Do they offer you free tea, slippers, or crackers to keep you comfortable and free from nausea?
What about privacy? You might want to get your photo taken in the nude, but will you have to bare your body to all to see?
Tip #6 Also, look for a pregnancy photographer that you’re comfortable talking to. It’s hard to get perfect photos taken if you’re not comfortable with the person taking your picture. Look for a photographer that you don’t have problems expressing your concerns to.
Tip #7 Last but not the least, consider the pricing. Compare and contrast rates offered. Does the pregnancy photographer offer packaged deals? What kind of payment methods is offered? Are there any discounts or promos you can take advantage of?
Take your time finding the right photographer because when you do, he or she will make everyone see just how beautiful a pregnant woman can be!

I would book a photo shoot now, and get them done within the month. You will just be huge and uncomfortable in your last month, and possibly be dealing with stretch marks?
