Are Maternity Photos Worth It?

When you have a baby on the way, your to-do list is all about preparing for your baby - prepping the house, going to doctor appointments, stocking up on diapers and baby clothes, and so on. But what are you doing for yourself during this incredibly unique and magical time in your life?

Maternity photography is a gift you can give to yourself as well as your baby and your growing family. Is it worth it? Check out these top reasons to invest in maternity portraits.

Forever Preserve This Fleeting Time of Life

Pregnancy might feel like it lasts for ages when your feet are swollen and your back is aching. Before you know it, though, you’ll be holding your baby and wondering where those nine months went. This unique stage is a blink in the scope of your life, and maternity photography is a way to save a piece of it forever.

Telling Your Family’s Story

Your pregnancy is not only a special season of your life but it’s a chapter in your family’s story too. You’re probably planning to have plenty of portraits of your baby when they arrive and all your children’s milestones. This is a piece of that story, and maternity photos are an important part of your photo collection that will tell your family’s story.

Honoring and Embracing the Beauty of Pregnancy

It’s easy to not feel pretty during your pregnancy because your body is changing so much. But this is precisely what’s so beautiful about pregnancy! Your body is adapting in amazing ways to perform the miracle that is creating a new life. A core part of maternity photography is helping you to appreciate the beauty in these changes.

A maternity photoshoot is a glamorous experience. You get dressed to the nines, even splurge on professional hair and makeup if you choose, and I guide you through stunning and flattering poses. Trust me, you’ll feel like a superstar! This is a chance to remind yourself of the genuine beauty of pregnancy and how gorgeous you are as a mom-to-be.

Creating Professional Portraits for Announcements and More

As many sentimental reasons as there are for maternity photography, there are practical purposes for it too. Maternity portraits make beautiful wall art in your home, but they’re also useful for announcements and posts you’ll want to make during your pregnancy too, like announcing the name you’ve chosen for your baby.

There are so many reasons maternity portraits can be special for both you and your family, and no mom wants to regret missing out on these portraits when she had the chance. To be blunt, growing a baby is hard work, and you deserve the experience and lifelong memories of maternity photography.
