Whether you’re expecting your first, last, or somewhere in between, maternity photos are a memory that you won’t want to miss out on capturing. You’ve spent almost a year getting to know that baby growing inside of you before you get to hold them in your arms. You’ll want to book your maternity photography in Alpharetta GA as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on capturing these precious moments. You’ll want to look back at some sweet memories of that unforgettable time and have photos you can hold onto forever.

Let’s dive in to some questions about scheduling your maternity photography in Alpharetta, GA

1. When should I inquire about my Maternity Photography in Alpharetta GA?

I recommend inquiring about your maternity photography in Alpharetta GA in or near the end of your first trimester. As photographers, our schedules often book up far in advance so you’ll want to get on our schedule so you don’t miss that perfect photo window to capture your growing family before baby arrives.

2. The Best time during pregnancy to take Maternity Photos

Every pregnancy can be different and every woman has a different window that she’s most comfortable taking maternity photographs. In general, the best time for maternity photography in Alpharetta GA is generally between 28 and 32 weeks. If this is your first pregnancy you may want to be closer to the later half of that window as first time mamas can show later in pregnancy.

You’ll want to have your photos done during this window to ensure that you get your photos taken before baby arrives and while you’re still feeling well and not uncomfortable. The last few weeks of pregnancy can often leave mamas feeling uncomfortable and not in the mood to take photos. Although every woman and every pregnancy is different. Taking your photos early in the 8th month also means that you’ll have your photos back before baby arrives so you’ll get to enjoy them while you wait during those last couple of weeks! You’re going to love looking back on your Maternity Photography in Alpharetta GA for years to come.

3. What if I’m at Risk for an Early Delivery?

Every pregnancy is different and if your doctor has discussed with you that you are at risk for an early delivery you should work with your photographer to find a suitable date that is outside of that window. Every situation is different and we work with clients to find the optimal time to photograph you and your growing belly.
