Bedrest and Maternity Photos


How do you do family photos or maternity photos if you are on bedrest?

Bedrest and Maternity Photos

The Woodlands Maternity Photographer

Every single one of my pregnancies was difficult. We are talking complication after complication. ER visits, and specialized doctors. And of course, bedrest.
It’s all totally worth it of course, but it can be so hard to get excited about anything but finishing up your bedrest and holding your new baby in your arms.

So what do you do if you are on bedrest but want to take maternity photos and document your pregnancy?

That is exactly what happened to Mandy with her second pregnancy. We scheduled her session pretty early on with every intention on photographing her family outside. But then she was put on bedrest! So we had to change our session and of course follow up with her OB. It’s so important to always follow your doctors orders and directions. Once we cleared it with her doctor, we came up with a plan!
Remember, always consult your doctor before setting up any plans especially while on bedrest

To accommodate her situation, we booked a local studio space that has a bed, chairs and multiple different seating arrangements to make sure that Mandy could sit down and be comfortable the whole time. It was air conditioned and full of stunning natural light. This was the perfect way to make sure we didn’t have to face any extreme outdoor temperatures, and we limited her walking and moving by keeping it inside. She was able to sit and rest, and didn’t stand except for when she was comfortable and able to. It’s honestly a great option for any expecting mama, but especially those who are restricted with movement.
A lot of my outdoor sessions are lots of moving, walking and exploring the natural setting we selected.
If you find that you are in this situation, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I want to make sure you are able to document this incredible milestone without doing anything that would be considered risky or unsafe for your baby.
