  • Introduction

    Maternity photographers work with pregnant women to capture images during the peak of their pregnancies. Photographs are typically taken in the third trimester when the subject's belly is round. In some cases, photographers may offer mothers and families the option to purchase maternity photos in a package with newborn photos, once their baby is born.

    Because every photographer's style is different, mothers-to-be have options when it comes to how they want their maternity photos to look. While some photos have an artful quality, others may be taken in a studio for a more traditional feel. Learn more about maternity photography by reading the frequently asked questions listed below.
