Understanding When to Book Maternity Photography

Are you ready to freeze those precious moments of your pregnancy in time? Maternity photography is not just about capturing images; it’s about preserving the essence of this beautiful journey. At Willow & Roots Studio, we understand the magic of this period and strive to make it a memorable experience for you. That’s why each of our maternity photographers has been trained how to pose pregnant moms in a way that is flattering and showcases the miracle growing inside of you. Part of capturing that fleeting time is doing it at the perfect window during your pregnancy.

3rd Trimester Maternity Photography

When is the best time to book your maternity photography session with us? A common question with a delightful answer! The sweet spot is typically between 28-35 weeks. That’s right after mom enters the third trimester. Why this window, you ask? Well, it’s when your belly is beautifully round and full, showcasing the miracle growing inside you. At this stage, you are likely to have that radiant glow, and your energy levels are still high, making it the perfect time to capture your maternal beauty. Picture this: you, surrounded by nature or in a cozy studio setup, showcasing your bump with pride and grace. Our expert photographers at Willow & Roots will ensure that every shot reflects the love, anticipation, and joy you are feeling during this special time.

Note that each woman is unique and your belly will show at different times. Typically, first pregnancies take longer to show and your ideal date for maternity photography would be later in your pregnancy. 

Bundle Of Joy Package

At Willow & Roots, we offer a unique opportunity for expecting parents with our ‘Bundle of Joy’ package. This exclusive offer combines both maternity and newborn photography sessions, allowing you to preserve the entire journey from bump to baby. Not only do you get to save by booking these sessions together, but you also get to create a seamless narrative of this incredible chapter in your life.Imagine flipping through a photo album years from now, reminiscing about the days when your little one was just a tiny bump, and then a precious newborn in your arms. That’s the magic of the Bundle of Joy package – capturing the complete story of your growing family in the most enchanting way possible. 

Please see the included side by side from a beautiful couple who chose Willow & Roots to capture both their maternity photography and then their newborn pictures a few weeks later. Isn’t she a doll?
