What’s most important when planning your boudoir maternity photoshoot? My clients will often check in before their photoshoot to ask if there’s anything they need to do, bring, or plan for in advance before rockin’ their maternity photoshoot. While the list isn’t extensive, there are a few things you should consider during the planning process—perhaps even before you book! I’ve laid it all out for you here.
Your body is always incredible and deserves to be celebrated, but if possible, even more so now as an expecting mom. A boudoir shoot allows you to relax into the changes your body is going through and recognize that this is a unique and powerful moment in your life.

When it comes to any kind of maternity photoshoot, including maternity boudoir, timing is crucial. On one hand, you may want to wait until later in your pregnancy when your bump is beautifully accentuated. At the same time, you also want to ensure it’s early enough that you have plenty of energy during your photo session. Usually, between week 32 to week 36 is the sweet spot for a maternity boudoir session.
