Get Picture-Perfect Maternity Photoshoot With These 5 Essential Tips

A picture is a worth of thousand words!  So, a Maternity Photoshoot is a beautiful way to record your journey and share it with your loved ones. What better way to celebrate the baby bump than to capture it in a picture? Even your little one will enjoy the images of herself in your tummy(her first home) when she grows up. Here are 5 tips that will help you get organized to capture this beautiful phase.

Picking The Right Trimester For Your Maternity Photoshoot

The best time to have your shoot is in the 3rd trimester from around 32 to 34 weeks of pregnancy. During this phase, your baby bump will be big enough to show beautifully and you are not uncomfortable as you would get toward the end of your pregnancy.

An Outfit To Accentuate Your Pregnancy Glow

Choose an outfit that will celebrate your beautiful baby bump to perfection. A flowing gown accessorized with a floral tiara is a never-fail option. If the shoot is planned for the evening, an elegant deep-color gown will do the magic. If you plan a shoot during the day, a lighter shade in plains or whimsical prints will add romance to the picture.

Add Loved Ones And Props For Action & Fun Into The Picture

A baby is a special time for the whole family. So, do bring your spouse into the shoot. If you have older children, make them a part of this beautiful memory. After all, the more in the pictures, the merrier the memories. Do add props like pregnancy scans or booties into the shot to bring a little fun into the capture.

Location And Time Of Day Are Important

Outdoors for your maternity photography session can be a great way to get some amazing shots. A garden or by the ocean makes for some memorable images. If you want to stay indoors you can choose a nice rich Victorian interior if you are dressing in a western gown. If you are wearing ethnic maternity wear you can choose a beautiful Indian heritage property. A day shoot would be great in the outdoors and an evening shoot will play nice shadows for an indoor shoot.
