4 Tips for taking Maternity Photos

Maternity photos are a wonderful way to document your life during pregnancy. Hopefully, you’re enjoying the glow of pregnancy and want to capture it. However, even if you aren’t feeling your best, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be photographed.

Here are some tips for taking maternity photos.

1. Location

First, decide on a location that you would like to take pictures. I have always preferred natural light and taking my pictures outside. However, some prefer the comfort and privacy of their own home and others prefer a studio for a more formal vibe. All three are great locations and your pictures will look beautiful.

2. Timing

The best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot is when the belly is large, but not too big. This is typically in Months 7 and 8. At this point your belly will be big and beautiful but not too big where it is hard to move around or pose for a picture.

3. Feeling Beautiful

I think the most important thing is that you feel beautiful, when we feel beautiful inside and out it will shine through in your photos. So buy the dress you love, get your hair done, and put on some makeup.

4. Attire

I suggest wearing a solid color, a pattern would be too busy and take the focus away from your bump. Avoid wearing anything too trendy you don’t want to look back at your photos and think why did I wear that? I prefer simple flowy dresses or a tighter floor length dress that showcases your bump. Some of my favorite dresses are from Rachel Pally http://www.rachelpally.com, Sew Trendy http://www.sewtrendy.com, and of course Nuova Vita http://www.nuovavita.com.

Pictures last a lifetime so take this moment to cradle your baby bump and take the moment to connect to your baby bump. The twinkle in your heart and eyes will shine through in your photos.
