It seems you have a long to-do list. Begin nesting. Buy baby essentials. Finalize birthing plans. Remember to eat well. Go for walks. Try to rest, aaannnd schedule a choose the best time for a maternity photo shoot? It can all feel so overwhelming, especially when it’s mom-to-be spearheading the preparations. Only if a personal assistant was issued at the start of every pregnancy. Alas, a PA isn’t included in any insurance plan I know of. However, your resident black female maternity photographer, will advise your best course of action. That’s one box to check off your list!
It probably seems like your time is fleeting. I can’t lie to you. It is. So, you want to be sure to commemorate the changes in your body before suddenly hearing, “I can see the head.” (No worries if you find yourself in such a scenario. Deziree Photography will capture sensational newborn portraits as well.)
The sweet spot for the best maternity photo shoot is typically between 30-35 weeks. However, that timeline is flexible to what makes the most sense for your journey. I recommend this phase because your belly is protruded in its full, maternal glory. Moreover, you glow just as bright. In this time, you still have energy before that feeling of being emphatically OVER IT. You are able to enjoy the fullness and beauty of your new body and bump. It’s when you have enough surface area for little hands who want to help welcome their new sibling, a loving embrace from your partner or simply capturing a breath-taking silhouette as the sun sets. Yet, its just enough time prior to all your attention going into tunnel vision prep mode. In this phase, we celebrate the marvel of your contours and bask in the radiance of glow.
To best ensure you’re on the books with the best black female and luxury maternity photographer in Houston, schedule your session as your second trimester begins. Keep in mind, late summer / early fall tends to be a busy season for many maternity photographers because it’s when we see the most births (due to cuddle weather conception).
