    They can be done beautifully, but that is something definitely not for me. If I had them done, it would just be for my husband and I and I wouldn’t share them with anyone haha.

    I would not do this, but if I did, I would only have them be for me and my husband. I don’t get how someone would take a naked photo of themselves and give it to friends and family. You wouldn’t give your aunt your boudoir photos, so why would you give her naked pregnancy photos?

    I think they’re just fine (the process of pregnancy is fascinating) but be prepared for people to make jokes at your expense if you post them on facebook!

    @AlwaysSunny:  haha holy heck that is just hilarious–especially that last one. WOW!

     

    I think they’re beautiful if done in an artistic way and not raunchy like some of these terrible examples, but just for the couple. I think I could see myself doing a shoot in a classy way, but not to be shared with anyone (ok maybe my mom if there are some that would be appropriate to share with her). I think they’re different from boudoir shoots because those are done solely to be sexy. These kind of pictures can be more about the beauty of pregnancy and the human body.

    I would prefer some of the classy siloutte/nude ones then the over done photos I keep seeing in pinterest; baby blocks, hearts made out of hands, “bump ahead,” chalkboard, do not open until ribbon. Like this one….truth is personally I would not post this on FB or put it on a postcard to my family members.  But for someone else- eh.

    No. I dont think anyone need to see that. I’m not a fan of bare belly shots to begin with. Or at least not a fan of having them public.

    @AlwaysSunny:  I LOVE pictures number two and three where dad is wearing that creepy ‘i put a baby in you’ grin.

    I have no problem with nude maternity shots, however I don’t think they’re appropriate for announcements.

    If you had them printed up and hung in your home, I wouldn’t bat an eye. If you wanted to make an album and show them to friends and family, wouldn’t phase me.

    I just don’t think they should be used for announcement(s) (Like gender or due date or whatever people are doing these days.)

    I think the pregnant body is beautiful and I am especially fond of nude photography, so, all’s good with me.

    I saw two pictures posted on the first page of comments that I find attractive and an important keepsake of that special time. One of the closeup of the woman in black underware, and the other with the woman lying down, back arched. A. it was classy B. it was PROFESSIONAL photography and lastly C. it was only of the woman and child…no creepy naked husband in it as well.

    It can be very tasteful, but no matter HOW tasteful these should be pretty private images. No facebook, copies to grandma and grandpa type of thing

    @roweboat:  incoherant sentances:

    • A bolero isn’t a shirt! 

     

    • Please tell me you know these people?

     

    • Any picture in which your man/women is cupping your breasts is not a moment to post on FB.  

     

    • My first thought when I see something really private/sexual on FB is “people make money off of this! Get your hustle on!!!!” #diapermoney

    Jumping in late in the game…but I don’t think that if you wouldn’t do the pose when you’re NOT preggars for the world to see, why would you do it when you ARE preggars?  So if you are Rhianna when every other pic of yourself is semi-nude anyway, then go for it!  But if I’m used to seeing you fully clothed, then please don’t send me pics of yourself with your baby-daddy molesting your boobies.
