Having a maternity photoshoot is a growing pregnancy trend, and for good reason. Maternity pictures are valuable keepsakes that you, your partner, and your future children can value forever. Your pregnancy is a special time in your life, and it makes sense that you would want to commemorate that for the future.
To make the most out of your maternity photo shoot, there are certain things that you’ll want to consider, including the best time to do maternity photos and what to wear for maternity photos.
How you feel during your pregnancy can vary, and you want your maternity photos to capture you at your best. That may mean different things for different people, but there are a few tips that will help any expectant mother get the most out of their photoshoot.
Below, we’re sharing some tips on the best time to take maternity photos, what to wear, and more. Read on!
Finding the best time to take maternity pictures is all about balance. You want to pick a time late enough into your pregnancy that you’re showing, but not so late that there’s a risk you could go into labor. You also want to feel beautiful in your body, which can come at different times for different mothers.
Scheduling your maternity shoot for some time at the beginning of your third trimester is a popular option. That being said, if there is a particular theme or scenery that you want, that could be a factor in your timing as well.
Just like no two people have the same personal style, no two expectant mothers have the same maternity style. Something form-fitting is best for maternity photos so we can see your beautiful baby bump. You might decide to wear a floor length gown, jeans with a cute top, or trust a photographer who specializes in nude maternity photography.
Dressing in your favorite pregnancy clothes is especially important for your maternity shoot. Many popular stores now sell maternity clothes, so if you have a favorite store, you should look to see if they have a maternity line. Ultimately, what to wear for maternity photos comes down to what makes you feel beautiful.
Your body is going to be doing an amazing thing: growing a human being. Part of the joy of a maternity session is that you’re capturing this miracle forever. There are many different ways to display your final images as works of art. What does that look like for you?
Perhaps you dream of framed wall portraits somewhere in your home. Or maybe you love the feeling of prints in your hands, so a folio box collection would be the perfect fit. If you love watching a story unfold before your eyes, an heirloom album is just for you. Whatever your choice of products, you should choose a medium for your maternity images that suits these works of art.
Ultimately, the best time to take maternity photos and what you do during your photoshoot comes down to what you’re comfortable with. Your body goes through so many changes during pregnancy, and there’s a lot to adjust to.
Having a maternity photoshoot should make you feel like the incredible, beautiful goddess you are.
