1) Do your research

All photographers have their strengths but try to find one who specifically specialises in shooting maternity photos. Not only will they have previous experience with other mums-to-be but they will be able to direct you to get the most out of your photos and your lovely bump.
Most photographers have a certain style so have a flick through their previous shoots to check you’ll all be on the same wavelength for the type of photos you want to achieve. It’s always worth checking reviews to ensure the photographer is reliable too.
