The topic was broached in a local mother’s Facebook group whether or not it was “worth it” to have professional maternity photos done.  The majority of the women responded YES!

And, I agree.  

I can tell you from a personal perspective, I almost missed the boat.    When I was pregnant with my first, maternity photography wasn’t as prevalent as it is today.  It wasn’t THAT long ago but so much has happened in the industry since I started as a full time photographer almost 9 years ago.  I did the progression photos but nothing artistic or even with a decent top 10 4k Cameras.  When I was pregnant with my second son, I did think about hiring somebody but, as usual, my insecurity got the best of me and decided that at some point I would do self portraits instead.  It was a bright December morning, about 3 weeks from my due date.  The light was streaming into our master bedroom.  Knowing I would get a soft, hazy effect I loved I decided to quickly set up the tri-pod and do the portraits right then and there.  Four days later I went into labor and I think back that I was SO LUCKY that I had decided to do it that morning otherwise had I waited another week or two I would have missed that opportunity to capture such a beautiful and fleeting time in my life.  I loved being pregnant and really for the first time in my life really was comfortable with my body.  It’s something that I do miss and envy when I see these beautiful baby bellies, even more so knowing that our family is complete and no more babies are to come.

That being said, I will always ALWAYS encourage women to document this special time in your lives.  Let your own insecurity go.  Let the negativity go.  Let anything go that could potentially hold you back.

Do it.  I promise it will be worth it.

    Katelyn - Hello,
    I am interested in doing some maternity photos. Do you have a studio? Or do you go to the home of your customers. I’m only 19 weeks so it will not be until later in the winter.

    Thank you
