Maternity photography captures the final stages of pregnancy and can be done by just the pregnant woman, with her partner, or with her immediate family.
Newborn photography captures the newborn in that very fleeting time following the birth. Newborn photography is done within the first 14 days after the birth (longer time for premature babies). This can be done in studio or home, or weather permitting, outdoors. While newborn photography is for the newborn, siblings and parents may be included in some of the images.
