Amazing Maternity Photo shoot

Before your photo shoot, it’s important to make sure you’re prepared. We want your family photo shoot to be exactly what you want! So, let’s look at 7 tips for an amazing maternity photo shoot. 

Choose a Place That’s Important to You 

First, the location of your photo shoot should have personal significance. Try to choose a place that’s important to you and your partner. Remember not to overthink it! The location can be as simple as your home, or somewhere that you’ve spent a lot of time while pregnant. 

Wear a Glamorous Maternity Dress

During your maternity photo shoot, you should feel confident and beautiful. The great news is that there are plenty of elegant maternity dresses for any type of body shape. While you may want to do a few outfit changes during your shoot, a designer maternity dress should definitely be one of them. Think about it. How many times in your life will you get to wear something so fancy?  

Bring Props

Mom is the most important part of the maternity photo shoot, but props can add another layer of creativity. Props in a maternity photoshoot should also have significance to you and your family.  We suggest bringing items such as: 

  • Baby shoes
  • Ultrasound pictures 
  • Stuffed animals
  • Other items that are important

This will give your photographer more to work with, and adds a personal touch to your shoot! 

Get Your Hair and Makeup Done

As all mothers know, pregnancy can be exhausting. It can be hard to do your hair and makeup! Before your maternity photo shoot, consider hiring a professional. This will help you to look and feel your best! 

Rest the Night Before

The night before your maternity photoshoot should be relaxing! If you have young children at home already, we understand that resting can be difficult. Try to keep things low key the night prior. Make sure you also stay hydrated, as we might be out for a while! Being as refreshed as possible for your photoshoot will ensure that you’re looking and feeling your best. 

Remember to Have Fun! 

Most importantly, a maternity photo shoot should be fun! If you’re well-rested, relaxed and enjoying yourself, the photos will come out much better. These photos are going to serve as a wonderful reminder of your pregnancy as your little one grows.
