Hi all! I'm a newbie, I have a few shoots scheduled already. Don't worry NO I am not pregnant, its just a curious question of mine, for future reference... If someone can answer this I will appreciate that, Thanks, Jasmine x

I suspect you mean whilst expecting rather than whilst conceiving?

You can actually get decent money going through the motions of conceiving on camera though

I think it depends on who the model is to be honest.

I've known a couple of agency models who have got pregnant and worked pretty much right the way through while expecting - doing mother/pregnancy publications and modelling maternity wear - artistic nude bump shoots.

Then I've known other models who have maybe had a shoot or two towards the end of their pregnancy to show the bump off.

I've also known models who have gotten pregnant and walked away from modelling and lost most of the confidence they had in their body, plus their pregnancies were anything but "simple" and they spent many months feeling like shit so the last thing they wanted was photographic evidence of it.

If you are planning a pregnancy I strongly urge you to get a few shoots under your belt before the process begins. Shoots can be a marvellous way of getting a little confidence boost but there are times when it has the opposite effect and when your body is going through such a dramatic change I'm guessing it hits you even harder than it would normally.

Good luck
