Timing- The best time to take your maternity pictures would be when your belly is nice and big, but not so big that you look like you are about to pop. You should schedule your shoot for when you are around 6-8 months pregnant.
What to wear- Wear something that shows off your belly like a tight shirt or dress. It is also important to wear something that makes you feel radiant, you want to look like the life giving goddess that you are.
Family- Bring the father and if you have other children bring them too! These pictures are all about love and the life you give. It would be beautiful to have your other children interacting with your belly as well as the father of the child.
