Getting Ready for Your Maternity Photoshoot: The Ultimate Checklist

August 22, 2023

The countdown to your lil’ one’s arrival is on, and what better way to celebrate this incredible journey than with a maternity photoshoot? 

As a photographer who’s been lucky enough to capture countless heartwarming moments, I’m here to help you breeze through the prep process. Let’s dive into your ultimate photoshoot checklist.

Choose your Vibe

Before anything else, think about the vibe you want your photos to have. Do you lean towards a dreamy, natural feel or something more vibrant and energetic? 

Wardrobe Wonders

For maternity shoots, opt for outfits that highlight your gorgeous baby bump. Flowy dresses and well-fitted tops work wonders. Don’t forget your partner’s attire too! For newborn sessions, consider neutral and soft-toned outfits to complement your tiny one’s sweetness. We offer a gorgeous selection of wardrobe offerings for our mama’s to be.

Pamper Yourself

Treat yourself to a little self-care before the shoot. Get your hair styled, nails done, and maybe even a quick massage to help you relax and feel fabulous. Lil’ One Photography offers makeup and hair services as part of our maternity session packages – which adds to the pampered experience.

Timing is Everything

For maternity shoots, consider scheduling between 24 and 32 weeks to showcase your baby bump beautifully.

Relax and Have Fun

Remember, photoshoots are all about capturing genuine moments. So, relax, be yourself, and have fun with it. We will guide you through poses and create a comfortable environment.
