It may not feel like it, but your pregnancy will fly by. If you’re wondering about booking a maternity photo shoot, here are the answers to some common questions.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY PREGNANCY SHOOT?

To ensure your shoot can take place at the best time for you, it’s best to book soon after your 20-week scan to guarantee availability
