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.
