Congratulations on your upcoming maternity photoshoot! This is an incredible opportunity to capture the beauty of your pregnancy and create lasting memories. In this guide, I’ll share some valuable tips and ideas to help you prepare for your maternity session. Let’s dive in together and make this experience truly magical!

Find Inspiration

Your maternity photos should reflect your personal style and celebrate your individuality. Start by browsing through magazines, Pinterest boards, or even your favorite fashion influencers to gather inspiration! Consider the colors, themes, and overall vibe that resonate with you. This will help us create a tailored photoshoot experience that captures the essence of who you are.

Choose the Perfect Location

Selecting the right location sets the tone for your maternity photoshoot! Whether you prefer the natural beauty of a park, the comfort of your home, or my studio, there are endless possibilities! Share your preferences with me, and together we’ll find a location that complements your vision and enhances the emotions we want to capture.

Selecting the Perfect Outfit

Selecting the perfect outfit is key to feeling comfortable and confident during your photoshoot! I have some fabulous recommendations for maternity-specific stores that offer stunning options. Pink Blush Maternity is one of my favorites, and they have an entire page dedicated to photoshoot dresses, and a bunch of really cute nursing clothes for after the baby is here!! A Pea in the Pod and ASOS also offer stylish and trendy maternity wear. If you are an in-person shopper like me, I’m sure you could find something at Victoria’s Secret, Torrid, or Target! A great local place you could check out is Madalynne Intimates!

Boudoir-Style Maternity Photos

For those interested in boudoir-style maternity photos, we have some exciting options! Many clients have discovered affordable and beautiful pieces from SHEIN that look amazing in photographs. Consider a comfy yet sexy pair of underwear and get creative with props to artistically cover yourself. Bralettes, chunky sweaters, and flowy cover-ups can all add a touch of elegance and glamour. We also have a blue poofy dress available in our client closet free of cost! Let us know if you’re interested and of any ideas you have.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize

Accessories can elevate your maternity photoshoot and add a personal touch! Consider incorporating your favorite jewelry pieces, such as a sentimental necklace or bracelet. A hat can also make a stunning accessory and create a unique visual element in your photos. We’ll discuss how to incorporate these accessories seamlessly into your session!
