Maternity Photo Shoot

What do you guys think?  Should I do one?  The girl who did our wedding (Kati) has volunteered that she's totally willing to do a maternity session, but I'm not entirely sold that I'll want it.

Has anyone out there done them?  Are they something you want to have around for a long time or something that will be quickly replaced by photos of the actual baby?

What if I tried to recreate this?
(Lindy sent me this photo--it's from awkwardfamilyphotos.com  Hilarious!  
The guy looks so proud of himself!


  1. I'm having the maternity shoot and the newborn shoot when Little Man arrives. I always imagined getting maternity pictures done with my husband because I think they are special. Now that I'm 6-1/2 months pregnant and divorcing it'll just be me and my dogs in the pictures. It kinda breaks my heart but what can you do? Players only like you when they're playing.

  2. Oooh! It could be fun to add the dog in! How many do you have?

  3. We did maternity shots with our 1st one...actually in Forest Park :) I was kind of odd, I refused to do any bare belly shots, all of ours were outdoors and in public, but I was good with that. We had one in a frame on our wall until we had our 1st set of family pics done, and now it is a pic of the 3 of us. I still have one on my desk, I believe Chuck does as well. However, now that we are expecting number 2 I am feeling mommy guilt cause we aren't doing another session....
