Scheduling a maternity photo session should be on every mommy-to-be’s checklist. By having maternity photos taken, you’re giving your child a glimpse of a world they’ll never be able to see for themselves – the time their parents spent as a couple before they entered the picture.

From the moment you see those two parallel lines on a pregnancy test, you start dreaming about the day you’ll get to hold your newborn in your arms. At first, it feels like time is inching by, and you find yourself saying things like “I am so tired of being pregnant.”

You’ve probably complained about your aching back, sleepless nights, and frequent heartburn to all your friends and family. “There is no way I’m going to miss this,” you state matter-of-factly while sweating buckets on a relatively cool day.

Posing for Maternity Photos Require perfect time

The perfect time for maternity photos is somewhere between 26 and 34 weeks (7 or 8 months). You want your bump to be fully showing, nice and round, but you don’t want to be so close to your due date that you are uncomfortable, or risk delivering before you make it to your session!

I planned one with my first pregnancy but ended up cancelling because of horrible backache. She offered to switch it to a newborn shoot, so I wouldn’t lose the down payment and I’m so glad I did that! I love those pictures.

For this pregnancy I just want one decent picture of my bump, that’s not a selfie. I’ll just ask my SO. And the newborn shoot is already booked 


Posing For Maternity Photos And Color Theme

Well for posing for maternity photos you need to give romantic vibe to your pictures with very light color look

Let me give a life hack on dresses and colors so colors like white, cream, light gray, tan, khaki and even pastels in blush, faint blues and minty teals, will give your photos a fresh, romantic vibe. These colors are universally flattering and work well for pregnant mamas and their spouses for such special memories!

I suggest bringing 2 to 3 outfits to your studio maternity session. This will add some variety to your final gallery of photographs, and also gives you the opportunity to mix and match styles if you would like to.

Outfits for Maternity Photoshoots

Outfits that do this and look great in studio photographs are:

  • A form-fitting, body-con dress to show off the shape of your bump.
  • Empire line dresses with flowing skirts.
  • Lingerie – alone or with an open-buttoned shirt or cardigan over the top – whichever makes you most comfortable.
  • Jeans with a bandeau or cropped top – but not maternity jeans. Wear your pre-pregnancy jeans unbuttoned, which will give a much more flattering shape than maternity jeans will.

Styles For Husband

Men should bring jeans or khaki pants or any other dark bottoms.

·         I encourage soft (not starched), plain white shirts. Cotton and linen are both great choices.

·         Throw a regular, WHITE and/or BLACK crew-neck t-shirt in the bag, too.

·         Bring solid, dark colors like black, dark brown, navy blue and charcoal gray tops and bottoms. Layers are great; wear the t-shirt under a crew- or v-neck sweater or jacket.
