I am often asked when it is suggested to shoot maternity photos. I generally recommend 30-34 weeks, depending on how the mom-to-be is showing and feeling. There is a sweet spot where the pregnancy is still comfortable yet the mom clearly has a bump that can be seen. We don’t want to wait too long or baby could come early or mom could become a bit more immobile.

Newborn sessions are done in the baby’s first 14 days of life to ensure they are sleepy enough to capture those precious tucked up sleep shots. It is also the time before baby acne and dry skin start to appear. Here is a sample of a recent maternity and newborn sessions that I did for this loving family!
