These pregnant photography trends showcase expecting mothers in an artistic setting. Many families are choosing to take portraits as a way to remember the exciting stage in their lives. These pictures and even videos are often sentimental and overly sweet. Some artists are interesting in capturing the vulnerability and strength of the pregnant woman, which can be seen in emotion evoking series like Sleeping Pregnancy Photography. Some of these women are also celebrities, gracing magazine covers and fashion editorials.

On the other hand, many pregnant photography series are intended to be shocking and throughout-provoking. In some cases it's a gender-bending ad, while in others, women sporting baby bumps are seen smoking, in wedding dresses or making a religious or political statement. These shoots evoke a wide range of emotions and embrace a number of themes.
