Five Tips for a Memorable Maternity Session

July 5, 2021

Pregnancy is one of the most special times in your life. Capturing this momentous stage in your growing family’s life is incredible whether it’s your first or third child. Here are five tips to make the most of your maternity photo session.

Find The Right Photographer

The right photographer will make you feel at ease instantly. While you’re researching photo studios, be sure to look at reviews, what’s included in package options and portfolios of work. Quality, style and experience is everything.

Schedule Accordingly

You’ll want to have your maternity shoot scheduled between weeks 30 and 34. Not only will you be absolutely glowing at this point in your pregnancy, but you’ll be comfortable enough to move around, and pose, without the fatigue.

Consider Professional Makeup And Hair

If you haven’t yet, consider hiring the services of a professional hair and makeup artist to take your pregnancy glow to the next level. You want to look and feel your best!

Create A MoodBoard

Plan ahead and create a collage of the poses and style of photos that inspire you. Share it with your photographer to better convey the look and feel that you’re hoping to achieve.

Choose A Sensual Wardrobe

Bring a variety of soft, neutral fabrics to drape your body in. A good maternity photographer will also have a selection of key wardrobe pieces for you to use. The goal? To feel like an absolute goddess.
