  • Not a chain studio. I'd look in the yellow pages for a private photographer, give them a call and see what they will do, go meet with them and view their work. Also, I'd take a friend with you, when you went, if you hadn't planned on it or thought about it. There are some weirdos out there!!

  • No its not weird however it is hard to find someone to do it.... I suggest calling around to some private photographers and just asking. My friend has several of them done and they are beautiful... she never took off her bottoms but she was topless in some of them (some of them she covered them with her hands)... and they are hung all around her house and nobody ever thinks anything of them other than that is a beautiful way to show the intimate side of pregnancy. Her husband is even in some of the pictures... and they turned out great. It is quite a bit expensive though. Good luck :)

  • What do you mean by semi-nude. There are plenty of ways to make a photo tastefull. I'd seek a private photographer.

  • just find a local photographer close to where you live. I know of a few that will do it from where I am from...I don't think it's weird at all....
