    Any chance you'd be comming out to the east coast some time before that :)

      So I finally decided to have a maternity shoot! It's scheduled for this coming Sunday and I just realized that I have no idea what to wear. The photographer is coming to my house so I'll be able to do wardrobe changes if I want so I could really use some ideas. Feel free to post examples of your pics as well, I have ZERO creativity on poses and stuff so all suggestions are welcome!

        All I have for input is CONGRATS!!!

        CONGRATS on being pregnant, and expecting your first child

        CONGRATS on deciding to do a maternity shoot!!! I am sure you'll be stunning.

        The photographer that did my BD (Toronto Wedding Photographer - Lisa Mark Photography) shoot does maternity, for inspiration check out her site, or others that have went before you - I did that before my BD shoot and my wedding. I just searched for inspiration in other's....

        CONGRATS AGAIN!

          Hmm first I would just go on say google and do an image search for maternity photos, and see what catches your eye, and show a couple photos to your photographer. That why they have an idea of what your going for.

          As far as outfits, I love white button down shirts for Maternity photos as well as those long white or black skirts. Or you could get really dressed up, as if your going to a nice dinner, as another option, just have fun with it, and let your photographer guide you.
          I'm happy you decided to get your photos done, I think you'll be glad you did. :-)

          Oh i'm so excited to hear that you are doing this!!! The lovely TammyB is actually coming to Wisconsin to do mine at the end of this month and I am THRILLED! I too am struggling with what to wear. I know what will photograph well and what I WANT to wear, but spending the money on maternity clothes seems silly, so it's a matter of finding what i have which will look great.
          The biggest thing that I have found with doing maternity photos for other clients is that tight fitting clothes works great. Blousy shirts, although beautiful, doesn't really show the true Bump and it might just make you look larger, KWIM?
          Really, just have fun with it. Be open to ideas your photographer has. You might not be 100% comfortable in your body right now, but trust me, it's beautiful and you will be SO grateful to have these photos down the road.

            How far along do most women take maternity pics? My friend told me she took hers at 7 months. Isn't that too early?

              Will do! Thank you! I've looked at a few but they're mostly classical and I really want something artsy. I have a couple ideas but for the most part, I think I will leave up to the photographer :) I really do like the idea of button down shirt and leaving the belly to hang out.

              Lucky you! Get Tammy to do your shot :) I'm really trying to think of a classy way of doing a nude or semi nude without my thick thighs hanging out. For the most part, I like my bump but instead of stretch marks, I have a bunch of pimples chillin on my tummy

              I was told that it depends on when you pop. I didn't really start looking pregnant until around 30 weeks or so; just chuncky, especially in pictures. My photog said that right around 35-37 weeks is good but it's still very individual.

              Hopefully your photographer will be able to get rid of pimples in post processing, so that shouldn't be a problem at all. Just don't worry about it during the shoot and it'll get taken care of later. Even if they can't, I'll do it for you... but I'm sure they will do it.

              As for when to get them taken, I always say between 34-37 weeks. You don't want to go TOO close to your due date because you start to swell pretty badly and it's so hard to move around. But, I've seen a bunch of people have them done earlier. Mine will be RIGHT at 34 weeks because that's the only time I could arrange Tammy's travel to get here, but honestly, I could probably get them done today and it's quite obvious that I'm pregnant. If Tammy would have been able to be here this weekend only (not the case, she'll be in CA... lucky!!), I totally would have done them anyways.

                I just wanted to let you know that I had my maternity shoot yesterday and wanted to thank everyone who replied and talked me into getting it done! It was soooo sooo sooo great and was the best Mother's Day present ever! The photographer made me feel very comfortable and it was awesome to have her come to our house for it. It did pose some limitations but overall, was a great way to go. She said that our shoot turned into a bit of maternity boudoir but still very tasteful. I can't wait to get the pics and I promise to post 'em here for your review:)
                Thanks again for all your support girls!
