Timing is everything!
The most pragmatic approach to deciding as to when you want to get your shoot done depends upon considering the mother’s comfort and picking a time when the baby bump is visible. The ideal time to schedule a pregnancy photo shoot is generally sometime between weeks 28 and 32. This is when the baby is comparatively stable, and it is easier for the mother to move around more freely.
Consult your Doctor:
This is more of a precautionary measure to ensure that everything is fine with the Mom and the baby. Your doctor will advise the best possible time frame when you can go ahead and get your shoot done.
Voice all your concerns with the doctor, and take a go-ahead from them to be at peace with your doing.
Pick a theme for your pregnancy photo shoot:
This is more of a personal choice regarding how creative you want to get with the shoot. Consult the photographer, there is a whole new genre of pregnancy photo shoots, and the ideas are unlimited. Be it a Disney inspired theme or something from you and your partner’s favorite TV series. You want a Simpson’s pregnancy shoot, or a more rustic Vikings vibe is all left to your whim.
But working with a theme in mind can help create some very aesthetic shots. You can even work on your post-pregnancy shoots with the music, continue it or choose another is all up to you.
All about Mom’s happiness-
The newborn will be a beloved member of the entire family. The little one will instead complete the family, so why should you leave the family from the photo shoot? Go ahead, involve the father of your kids in the shoot. They will only add to the picture you have variety, and the photos show how important the little one is to every member.
As is apparent, include your elder kids as well. They would be so thrilled to welcome their siblings and how else will they tell stories to the kids what all they did before the little ones came into the world.
Choose a fluffy partner for your pregnancy photo shoot:
Can a family be complete without your furry babies? Yes, include your pets in the pregnancy photo shoot, the animals can be a bit hard to manage, but you can only imagine how perfect the picture will be with your fluffy companions.

Of course, we mean with the ideas. Whether you decide to get your belly painted or doing an underwater shoot or experimenting with silhouettes and or going for shadow photography as we mentioned before, there are many creative options to pick from and a lot of new things that you can do.
