6. When is the best time for your photoshoot

The best time to book your maternity photoshoot is between 32-36 weeks of your pregnancy.

This is when your bump is prominently showing and is nice and round without dropping but you are also still comfortable enough to move.  Another factor to consider is the location, time of day and temperature. Outside in the hot midday summer heat may not be very comfortable 8 months along.

7. Most importantly have fun and create memories that you will cherish forever

Some advice for me would be

Wearing a dress, robe or two piece set from us at Everything Lace Hire that is going to have you looking amazing, radiant comfortable and confident. 

Select a location that holds sentimental value to both you and your significant other or that exudes breathtaking beauty.

Most of all do not be afraid to show off your growing baby bump and embrace your changing body.  Laugh, have fun, and enjoy the moment with your partner or loved ones.

All dresses and robes are available to hire with Everything Lace Hire.
