Being pregnant is such an exciting time in a growing family’s life. Documenting it to remember forever is a must! Although I’m not a mama (to a human) yet, I have mamas tell me that they don’t feel beautiful in their new body with stretch marks and swelling and everything else that comes with pregnancy. Picking what to wear while you’re feeling off in your own body can be hard, so let’s talk about some maternity photo outfit tips that you can use to get ready for your maternity photoshoot.
The biggest mistake you can make when choosing your maternity photo outfits is only picking one! Bring 2-3 outfits so you can get some great variety in your photos.
Don’t be afraid to choose some tops that show off that bump! This could be a sports bra + jeans outfit, a cute crop top + jeans, or anything else that you feel comfortable in.
If you’re worried about being cold, layers are never a bad move. This way, you have a few different options within the layers depending on how comfortable you are. Chunky knits over smaller tops can help you keep warm while also giving you the opportunity to stay covered up if you’d rather not fully get the belly out for your maternity photo outfit!
If you have a vision in mind for your maternity photo outfit but don’t want to buy something you’ll only wear once, renting is always a great option! I have clients who have previously rented from The Kindred Soul. They have lots of beautiful maternity dresses to choose from!
These flowy maternity photo outfit options are great for movement in photos since there isn’t a lot of movement in maternity shoots. They’re beautiful and help show off that cute belly bump of yours! Also, they’ll hide any swollen ankles if you’re worried about that!
A tight dress will feature your bump in a beautiful way. These tighter dresses can be great for layering, as well. Whether that’s with a jacket or a chunky knit, you definitely have options when you go with a fitted dress!
Maternity photos don’t have to be just about you and your bump. You can bring tiny baby shoes, onesies, ultrasound pics, and anything else you have that is baby related and you want captured during this exciting time for your family.
Now that you have all the maternity photo outfit tips you’ll need to pick the best outfits, it’s time to book your session! Make sure you embrace this season and enjoy the journey – it’s fleeting! So let’s work together to capture your family legacy.
