The post below inspired me to finally call for an appointment. I thought that DH would be in some of the photos but he doesn't think that is necessary since I am the only one with a baby bump. He will do whatever I want. What do most people do?
rm2013:Definitely he should be in the pics! It's not just about you, it's about you two as parents. There are so many cute shots, like him holding you from behind with his arms around the bump, him kissing or snuggling the bump, and then of course the close up bump shot with both your hands cradling it. I'm sure your photographer will have even more ideas.
This! I love the shots of the two of us (well, 3 of us!) the most from my first maternity shoot. To be honest, I am not going to frame a picture of just me & my bump. But, I still have framed pictures up of me and DH from my maternity shoot. We got some great shots! The ones of just you and your bump will be great for scrapbooking, and to look back on and show LO one day, but other than that, I don't know what I will do with mine. Definitely get shots of all of you!

We just had ours done. Fiance was in most of them and then I had a few of just me. I didn't like any of the ones with just me, I'm giving those to my mom :) There is a really cute one of him kissing my belly, and there were a few that were close ups that didn't show my belly at all, so that was nice as we have never had any pictures done before.
I don't think the photos are just "about you," I think it's about documenting your family. I also think they are great for when you the baby gets bigger you can show him/her and say "Look how young mom and dad look!" "Look when you were in mommy's tummy" etc. Plus I know his family would want some too, and not just of me.
