You are expecting a baby, congratulations! This is an exciting time in your life. Even though it might feel like it’s lasting forever as you anxiously await the arrival of your little one, there is a time where you will think about how quickly it really went. Scheduling a maternity photo session is a great way to capture all that is happening in your life at this time. Your baby bump is growing each day along with your little one inside and your emotions are all over the place as you wait for the arrival of your baby. A professional photographer can help you capture all of the beauty of your changing body along with the excitement that you are feeling.
One of the biggest questions people have about doing a maternity photo shoot is “what should I wear?”. It can be difficult at times to find clothes that you like as you adjust to your growing belly, so here are some tips on what to wear for your photo session:
Maxi Dress – A flowy maxi dress is a fantastic option for your maternity photo shoot. They create a beautiful, dramatic, yet feminine look while allowing you to be comfortable. You want to be able to move around easily into positions during your shoot and a maxi dress will allow you to do that. They help to cover up the things you don’t want to focus on and allow you to pull it tight under the belly to show off your growing baby bump
Solid neutral colors – During your maternity session you want the focus to be on your growing baby and not your clothes. To accomplish this you will want to wear neutral clothes that are solid in color. If you love fun bright colors you can add in little pops of color through accessories like a necklace or scarf.
Timeless – You want your maternity portraits to be something that you can look back on for years to come. Avoid going with overly trendy clothes so you can have pictures with a timeless look. Choose classic pieces to keep the focus on your pregnancy and not the current fashion trend.
