    My cousin has the one and only photograph in existence of me when I was pregnant. What I would give to rip that photo up

    My mother didn't speak to her dad for years because he took a photo of her when she was pregnant.

    get your lighting and position right, and just keep moving and shooting..

    but I understand you might want more professional shots, sometimes you can find people on instagram, but you also want someone you can put faith and trust in..

    you need to search companies on Yell, then read reviews on trustpilot maybe

    It seems to be an idea imported from the States. I'd just Google photographer and your post code then have a look at their work to see if their style suits what you are looking for.
    I found this in about 30 seconds mommymomentsphotography.com/mat…ity
    What I can say is don't expect to get a shoot and print for £50 !!

    Have a look on Facebook and online. I had one done 4 years back. Lovely experience and great photos. Think it cost around £200 and we got some photos aswel included. We also paid a little extra to get new born photos done at the same place as I really enjoyed it. (edited)

    Maternity shoot, is that really a thing
    Can't you photograph her yourself or are you talking about filming the birth?

    I will search on YouTube and look at the tips on how to take good photos. Thanks for the tip.

    Can you do it yourself? It isn't difficult to get some great photos. But if that isn't a thing then you don't say where you are so none can recommend.
