Typically between 30 to 36 weeks of pregnancy, your baby bump is beautifully round, and you're still comfortable with posing and movement. This timeframe also allows flexibility in case of an early arrival. By scheduling within this optimal period, we can capture the beauty of your pregnancy and the anticipation of welcoming your little one into the world.
