This certainly is a question that many ask! The goal is to narrow in on when you can see a baby belly but not to the point within 4-6 weeks prior to your due date where most swelling and discomfort play in!

The best time to take maternity photos is in the sweet spot between your second and third trimester. Everyone carries differently. For that reason alone, best to contact your maternity photographer earlier rather than later in order to schedule their services so you have your photos taken at the optimal time for you! The best time for maternity photography sessions is anywhere between 26-34 weeks.
