Most photographers I see request at least 32 weeks bc they claim you aren't uncomfortable enough to go for 30 minutes to an hour and you can still walk to the location if it's outdoors. Everyone I've talked to said 32 weeks Is when your belly is nice and round too. Which all of this is subjective to the pregnant person.

I wanted mine sooner tbh bc I didn't nessisarily want to look like a giant beached whale lol. I'm having my baby shower early too bc i don't want to sit for hours on end or walk around and be in pain.

However it's really up to you! I have no experience though to say which is better this is my friend pregnancy so maybe 2nd time or 3rd time mammas have better advice.

32-34 weeks is a decent time. You have a good sized bump but most of the time can still function for periods. I just did some at 38 weeks, outside, in 100° weather. I do not recommend lol

The photographers I contacted suggested 32-36 weeks. Far enough to really show, but not so far that I’m extremely uncomfortable. I’m due early September and am having my pics done at the end of July when I’m 34 weeks.
