The touch of motherhood is a wondrous thing! It adds a healthy plumpness to the body and colour to the cheeks. No doubt, it makes a woman glow inside out! All these changes pass so quickly, you can hardly even remember them after a few months. So document your unique and unforgettable pregnancy, with someone who will be able to match your needs. When you pick from our list, you can be sure of a quality, custom service.

In the preparation for your child – their room, their clothes, the toys, and the baby shower– it’s hard to concentrate on the beauty of the moment. Sadly, the time passes by in a blink of an eye, and all of a sudden the gargantuan stomach has shrunk back down and your baby is already crawling. When you least suspect it, the nostalgia will hit you. Luckily, there are a number of qualified, professional photographers that can help capture that special and beautiful ephemeral body.

Before you start skimming through the list, here is some important information for your maternity photo shoot.

Make sure that you contact your preferred photographer at the start of your pregnancy. Waiting too long might allow them to slip out of your fingers, since specialist photographers are busy and often booked out for 3 to 6 months. You will be advised to come in for your shoot somewhere between 27 to 36 weeks into your pregnancy. If you are having twins, you will most likely be told to come in between 27 to 30 weeks. This is because, during this time, your body is in its best shape; your stomach is protruding beautifully without compromising your condition.

Most maternity photographers will give you a choice between an on-location, an in-studio, and possibly an at-home maternity session. The location can be focal to the product, so it is best to take a look at the examples each photographer puts forth. However, generally, the at-home portraiture will be candid lifestyle, the on-location shots will be divided between glamour and lifestyle, and in-studio sessions will produce structured and intimate pieces.

However, because every photographer is individual and particular in their style, we have composed a list of the top 20 maternity photographers located in and around Adelaide.

Happy pickings!
