Pregnancy is truly a gift from God and for 9 months you get to experience the true feeling of what it is to give new life. It is something that you should treasure for ever and make the most out of that 9 months. That’s why we believe that you should remember that feeling and come for a maternity shoot to capture that moments of the little miracle inside of you, forever.
WHEN TO COME FOR THE SHOOT?
Wait until you’re big, but not too big.
You want your belly to be big and beautiful, but you don’t want it to be so large that posing and holding different positions for any length of time becomes taxing. Professional photographer Mariah Milan Dagupion suggests taking photos right around 30 weeks. That’s when your belly gets really round, she says, but it’s not too heavy yet. Of course each pregnancy and pregnant belly is different so use your own stamina as a guide.
WHAT TO WEAR?
Wear something tight and stretchy.
The whole point of the shoot is to see the gorgeous belly, right? Tight, stretchy clothes will best accentuate all your great curves.
Never wear maternity clothe, since their primary objective is often to feel good on, rather than flatter your shape.
Skip the floral, plaids, and checks prints. You want to be able to look back at these pictures in 10 or 20 years and still think the photos look great. Whereas really stylized clothes can get dated, solid darks and neutrals are timeless.
Alternatively, we skip clothes entirely. I have a set of sheer curtains, and I use one panel to wrap the breasts and another panel to wrap the belly.
