anyone else have photos taken of themselves in their 3rd trimester? If you did where did you get it done? Was it a national firm or a local firm? If anyone had it done near north wales would be great to hear from you xxx

God no.

<<Insert joke about Greenpeace and beached whales and/or wide-angled lenses>>

Take a few pics at home by all means but seems to me as naff as non-pregnant photo shoots that some women have around their living rooms. Don't get it.

I had some done at 33/34 weeks. I love them. I'm not planning on putting them up in the house anywhere as they are naked bump/hands covering chest sorts of photos but I love being pregnant and this is my 4th and final time and I wanted them for my memory box.

I'm in Ceredigion. Couldn't find anyone that did the sort of thing I wanted round here so I used babymephotography , near Bristol as I had heard good things about Melanie through another forum I use.

If you're anywhere near the west midlands, you can get a bump cast done by Skinprints. I just had my baby's feet cast and they are brilliant!

i can hardly stand looking in the mirror let alone commissioning photographs of my beached and bloated form. i cant make any recommendations but i do think its lovely that you feel nice enough about your body that you can do this [sobs into frankly not-hitting-the-spot non-alcoholic beer].

I got a nude shoot done when I was 8 months, this was about 10 years ago, the photographer massaged my nipples to make them pert and I orgasmed from it ! I still think about it to this day.

Gosh thetruth, did.ur hubby know that? Bet it was a bit of a suprise 2 the photographer 2!! Im not brave enough 2 get nude shots done and would like pics 2 put on show, would feel self conscious putting nude 1s up. They do look fab tho! Wish i was brave and confident enough! On monday after work i'll ring a couple of ppl c if they can fit us in 4 a family shoot in a couple of weeks. So excited!

Something tells me that 'TheTruthNothingButTheTruth' has got a very ironic screen name. Mainly because their post is obviously a pile of ball bags! Haha! As if a photographer would massage someone's nipples on a pregnancy shoot! I think that even glamour models are told to massage their own nipples if they need to be pert! Christ you get some right ones on these fora smile

its just that its a nice memory to keep for the future and to show baby obviously the more covered up ones Im sure when Im 80 will look back and say "oh dont I look lovely lol" I love my body cause its carrying my child I dont feel sexy or in the best shape but not having it done for that xx

I took a spontaneous pic of myself with bump today for the final time before birth (37+4), it turned out to be so lovely and flattering I put it on facebook (Im not one of these that uploads my entire life onto there)!
Im very pleased - its gonna be a one of those pics I look back on and admire. smile

Im currently 21 weeks pregnant and was in Mothercare today and enquired at Pixi Foto about pregnancy photos cause Im really interested in having one and to my surprise they do them there.
She showed me some brilliant photos of previous customers and Im defo gunna book in!!
She suggested that you shud be about 32 weeks upwards to get the best photo and if your brave enough bring some tan coloured briefs to wear if you want the nude shoot done.
Ive used pixi photo before for photos of my daughter and they turned out fantastic and the photographers are really friendly, so would really recomend them.
Good luck huni xxx
