Maternity Pics at how many weeks? — The Bump

Maternity Pics at how many weeks?

I did maternity pics at 32 weeks when I was pregnant with DS.  I thought I was a good size for the pics then.  I'm thinking of doing them again this time, and wanted your input on when I should schedule them for?  If you did maternity pics, when did you do them, and are you happy with when you did?

  • I did mine at 26 weeks, and it was perfect timing.  I wasn't too sore and wasn't swollen yet at all, but my belly was big enough.

  • I did them at 32 weeks. I wish I'd done them a little earlier, maybe 29 or 30 weeks, because my legs and feet were so swollen by 32 weeks that I couldn't wear my cute shoes and had to instruct the photographer to photograph above the waist only.

    We live in texas and did ours at 26 weeks and it was perfect because the weather was still nice out. I think I could've waited a few more weeks, but they came out great so can't complain!

  • I think it depends on how you are carrying. I just did them at 27 weeks and my belly really isn't that big. I am however ber swollen already so that isn't any fun and leg fatigue was bad. Belly size I wish I had waited, swollen wise I would have done it three weeks ago! Sorry, prob not too much help

  • I did mine at 35 weeks.  They came out awesome and I was comfortable for most of them.

  • Thanks for the advice ladies!  This helps a ton!
  • I just did mine at 34 weeks and don't have the results yet, but I hope they look decent despite all of my hideous swelling.  I wanted the belly to be as prominent as possible without risking sending myself into labor during the shoot.

  • 26 weeks.  i hit a wall at 32 weeks and looked tired and uncomfortable.  at 26 weeks i still had some glow left in me :)  Also I was measuring around 4-6 weeks ahead so My belly was 32 week size at the time of the pictures.

  • We did ours at 26 weeks...I'm happy we did them at this time.  Like pp said, I'm measuring about 7 weeks ahead so I look around 33 weeks.  Plus, I still had the energy and felt pretty good.  Plus, it's not too hot yet! ;)

  • 29 weeks and my belly looked good... I was measuring 40 weeks at that point.  Good thing we did them then cause I delivered the week after.  


  • I was 28w3d.  I felt like I had a good amount of energy and yet was still pretty beat afterward.  Some uncomfortable positions, but made it through.  I think I had a pretty good belly for them.
