I have a friend who decided that instead of shelling out lots of money for photos they would buy a really nice camera to take the pictures with and to take pictures of their baby when she came. They turned out absolutely beautiful.  They took them outside at a park and even set a timer and took some of both. If your SO is comfortable doing it I say go for it. Best of luck

@katieebee:  I honesly think it’s way to expensive to take maternity pics! save that $$ for baby:) I think the DIY pics are great not only because you save money but because daddy gets to do it! How sentimental :)))) 

My idea (we might do this too): invest in a pricey and great wuality camera so that you can not only take the maternity pics but also you can take post-birth family pics and newborn pictures…..and baby shower pics…and 1st birthday pics…it’ll really come in handy. I think you can get an awesome Nikon one for like $450.00 which is the price if maternity pics anyways but you can actually use the camera forever:) and for future pregnancies.

I want to do this, but unless we go to some famous tourist site, no one will take photos of the both of us.


I’m thinking of going to DC and have other tourists take our picture–one in front of every site. 🙂

Luckily, my sister went to photography school….and although she didn’t end up finishing, she’s great.  She’ll be taking our photos, free of charge. 🙂

Me and the hubby will also be doing our pictures ourselves to save money, (although i do think maternity pro pics are worth the money if you have it!) i do photography as a hobby so hopefuly they will come out decent. i wuld suggest def getting a tripod, even if hubby doesnt want t obe in most of them, it will come in hnady.  also a remote for when you guys are taking pictures together, it is SO much eaiser to use that then to run and set the timer every time you want to take a picture.  also look up some ideas/poses that you want to emulate and print them out and bring with you when your doing your photos so that yuo get the pics you want!
