We recommend scheduling your belly pictures between the 34th and 38th weeks, as that will give you a pronounced bump without too much swelling elsewhere, but there are always trade-offs.
If you schedule too late, you might have some extra water weight in your face and thighs, but you’re sure to have a great belly. If you’re normally very lean, this may not be a problem for you, and waiting could provide an amazing bump in your pictures.
On the other hand, if you schedule too soon (30 weeks is probably a little early) you might only look full from a big meal 🙂
Here’s a gallery from 31-40 weeks:
These are images of pregnant bellies taken at maternity portrait photo shoots in Portland, Maine between 31 weeks and 40 weeks. These artistic maternity pictures show the size of the belly bump at different times, to help expecting mothers determine when they would like to schedule their pregnancy pictures photo shoot (at Focus Photography in Maine!).
