Pregnancy portraiture photographers in Klang Valley

I have always been the kind of person who treasures captured memories. Looking back at my first maternity shots and E’s newborn photos never failed to bring back wonderful memories. These are keepsakes for us to cherish in years to come. It’s a plus point if they are beautifully and professionally taken too because as you can see, I do not have an eye for photography. Thank goodness for Instagram! 🙂

With baby #2, the decision to have a professional pregnancy shots done was rather impromptu as photography packages have become more expensive over the years. And it’s only fair that if E has it, baby should have it too. Additionally, this could be my second and last pregnancy, so let’s make the most out of it!

I have recently conducted a brief survey on photographers who conduct maternity portraitures in the Klang Valley area. Here’s to share an overview of the pregnancy portraiture packages offered by six photographers/studios in Klang Valley (arranged according to price range):

Note:
I engaged them during my first pregnancy but didn’t quite like their service and photos outcome too. We initially signed up for the maternity and newborn session package but after an unpleasant experience, we opted out for the newborn shoot. Hope they have improved lots though!

Tips:
1. If you are budget-conscious, find out if the studio/photographer can offer a customized package. Otherwise, if you’re looking to have both pregnancy and newborn portraiture done, a combo package is usually more economical.
2. Schedule your pregnancy photography to be taken only after 32 weeks when your bump is big and prominent. It looks nicer in photos too.
3. For newborn photography, get it done before baby turns 2 weeks old as this is the period when babies sleep most of the time and posing them is easier.

So, which photographer did we engage in the end? Stay tuned for the photos coming up soon, some time in end October! 😀
