My wife is 8-wks pregnant, and I want to start taking weekly pictures of her over the next 7 months. I'm looking for any examples or suggestions of interesting ways that someone else may have done this before. I am also very new to digital photography, though have a 5DM3 and tripod that I plan to setup in the same spot for each shoot.

Thanks in advance for any ideas, advice or examples!!!!

Congrats. Have you thought to take her picture every 2 weeks in the very same spot? When you're done you could make a slide show of all of them.

My suggestion would be google maternity photography for inspiration.

I am currently working on a maturnity shoot. I am doing a composite. I have photographed a very interesting downtown apartment and am shooting mom in studio to be placed in several locations of the room at different stages of her pregnancy. The final shot will be her in the center of the room in a rocking chair holding the baby.

I shot some silhouettes, but probably only effective the bigger she gets!

I set up a backgground and a couple lights and kept the settings exactly the same everytime. So every 4-5 weeks, we would take a picture in the same spot with the same clothes, so that over time, you could see the tummy grow. It was really cool.

We just had our first son and I tried to take a photo shoot each month with a different "theme" each time. some outside in sunlight, some inside with strobes, some with backgrounds that were part of the theme, some without, etc etc. Here is a chance for you to be creative!

Ask her if she has seen any photos that she liked.
