  • Ya and also the baby can't be too big 'cause it will be impossible to get the baby's whole body in the pic.

  • They recommend 24-31 weeks to get a god picture. I had one done a few weeks back and it was awesome!

  • In my experience, 30 weeks or more would be the best. We got one at 27 and 33 weeks. The 33 weeks was WAY WAY better. We got to go back for free the second time because the 27 week one, she kept hiding her face and was way to hyper to get a good picture.
