Are you expecting a baby and wondering when the best time to schedule your maternity photos in Charlotte, NC would be?  The truth is there are many routes you can choose when selecting the best time for you. As a maternity photographer, I have learned that no two pregnancies are alike, especially when this is your 2nd or 3rd baby, and everybody handles pregnancy differently. There are two very important factors when booking your session. That said, most maternity photos are between weeks 28 and 34 of your pregnancy.
The reason for this time frame is that our baby bump is typically prominent at this stage, but you’re not too close to your due date, where you may be exhausted and uncomfortable. You will have plenty of energy to pose for the photos and feel beautiful. If you are having twins, it might make sense to schedule your maternity session prior to he the 28-week mark, and that is okay. Your maternity sessions should be custom to YOU and YOUR pregnancy!
When you are ready to start planning for your maternity photos in Charlotte NC, I suggest researching local photographers once you get to your second trimester. There are many amazing photographers in Charlotte, NC, but you should always take the time to find the right one for you. You can read my blog post here, discussing how to find the right photographer for you if you are starting the process. 
If you’re a first-time mom, you may wonder why you should take maternity pictures. Specializing in maternity photos in Charlotte, NC, I hear from mamas that passed on getting photos done that they always wish they had. Maternity pictures are a great way to capture the joy and beauty of pregnancy. It’s a time that passes quickly, and having photos of this time will help you remember the beauty and excitement you felt during your pregnancy. It’s also a great way to document your changing body and growing baby bump

With hair and makeup, wardrobe, and custom artwork, you will have a relaxed, stress-free experience while creating beautiful custom artwork for your home.
