Lots of moms-to-be decide they wish to have some professional photos to record this special stage of life. Just as in boudoir photography, most women and most commercial photographers prefer to de-emphasize the woman's sexuality and concentrate on the "nurturing mom" look. That's fine for most people, but what if you prefer a more sexual look? Something more provocative, that doesn't deny your sexuality.
Obviously, the answer is to get in touch with Beyond Boudoir Photo and schedule a photoshoot. But there's more to it than that. The biggest question is when to do the shoot. For some reason, almost all of the women I've worked with felt that they should wait until the final month of their pregnancy, but I disagree and here are four reasons.
In my opinion, the best idea is to schedule three or four photoshoots to document the various stages of the pregnancy. Each stage is different and beautiful in its own way. If the last shoot gets cancelled by an early arrival, it's not a disaster.
Here is an example of an early pregnancy photo. I think the subtle changes are quite lovely, don't you?
And of course, here is a later stage photo of a different woman:
Sadly, I don't have any examples I can show you that depict one women in the various stages of pregnancy. If you know someone who would like to volunteer to pose in exchange for free images, please send her my way!
Update: I do now have a number of nude maternity images that I can share with you, but out of respect for the lovely moms who posed for trade shoots, I am keeping the gallery protected with a password. If you are pregnant and interested in discussing a sensual photoshoot, please use the contact form to request the password to the maternity gallery.
