    Default Maternity Photo Shoot excessive?

    Just wanted some advice on m.a.t.e.r.n.i.t.y. p.hoto s.hoots. I plan to have a new.born p.hoto s.hoot but I feel guilty about considering a maternity photo shoot (which would include my partner, both of us fully clothed) and our fur baby...The photographer we're using is only charging me $270 (for each of the shoots) which I think is a bargin.

    My question is, is this excessive/selfish? Should I just ask a family member to take some nice pictures instead. I don't want to throw away money especially since our idea for the photo.shoot isn't the norm (which seems to be standing in your undies; just not my thing at all).

    Thanks!

    Up to you! Some people spend $$ on newborn photos, engagement photos etc. whatever the time is that's important to you and that you'd like to remember- go ahead, you don't want to regret not doing it! And I have seen some beautiful pregnancy shoots of mum & dad fully clothed as well

    I had it done with DD and I display one of the photos.
    I didn't do it with DS as I have photos that were taken causally and it's nice to look back on those :-)
    I personally wouldn't spend money on the pregnancy shoot, but it's each to their own :-)
    If you think you will have a feeling of regret then go for it :-)

    Not excessive at all!

    I got maternity shots done then had family shots done when DS was a few months old. I really wish I had of got professional newborn shots too...but I was just so overwhelmed in the first few weeks that I never got round to organising.

    Personally I think professional shots are well worth the money to capture priceless memories.

    Yeah that one was. The others though... The man-in-womb belly painting might be my favourite.

    Default Maternity Photo Shoot excessive?

    It's up to the individual, I don't think it's excessive or selfish, more and more people seem to be getting photo shoots done. I'm getting a maternity and new born shoot done with my photographer who also did our engagement and wedding shoots and has became a bit of a friend too. It's about $200 per shoot which I think is good value too.
