What should I wear to my maternity photo shoot?

Preparing for your new baby can be quite overwhelming, especially for first time mums. Why not stop to embrace that beautiful glow your baby is giving you, and have some maternity photos taken? We offer maternity photo sessions in our home studio or on location. Here are some ideas to help inspire you, because we know the last thing you want to worry about, is what to wear to an upcoming photo shoot.

What else?
MAKE UP – I do encourage makeup for your photo shoot, and think that natural looks best. To achieve a beautiful, natural look in your photographs, apply a little more coverage than you would normally, and finish with powder. I also recommend bringing some of your powder along in case we want/need a touch up during your shoot. For flawless makeup, why not treat yourself to a professional makeup artist? I can highly recommend a makeup artist for your photo shoot ~ just let me know when we book your session.
DON’T FORGET YOUR FEET – shoes matter! They will tie your outfit together and complete the feel of your photos. If we are doing a beach shoot, NO shoes looks best. Why not spoil yourself to a pedicure before your session so your tootsies are feeling and looking their best?
HYDRATE – drink water and moisturize!!
REST – how you feel will show up in your images, so be sure to rest up and relax before your photo shoot so that you’re looking great.
AVOID –
-bold prints/patterns/logos as they distract from the main subject
-baggy clothing – we’re here to celebrate the bump, so we need to see it
-anything that will leave a mark on your skin (like elastic/straps etc)
-any clothing that is way outside your normal wardrobe; we want you to feel comfortable in the clothes you wear, and to see ‘you’ in your photos

I would normally suggest bringing a few outfits along to your maternity shoot. We may not use all of the clothes you bring, but it’s good to have several options available.

Just remember to be comfortable and keep it simple!

We look forward to capturing this special time in your life xx Kristy & Ben
