Maternity Photo Session: What to wear

Here are some tips for helping you choose your Maternity Photo session outfit.

Comfortable maternity photo session outfit 

Your maternity photo session is not the time to try to squeeze into those pre pregnancy jeans. Wear something that you are comfortable and can move around in.

Show off your belly for your maternity photos

I know I said be comfortable, but I also want to see that belly.  Wear something that is form fitting to your belly.  After all, you are documenting this special time while your baby grows inside you and want to show it off.

Maternity Dresses

If you don’t ever wear dresses, then this recommendation may not be for you.  I want you to look like you, so if you never wear dresses, then don’t go get one just for your session.  If you do wear dresses though, I recommend wearing a long maxi type dress.  They show off the belly and give great movement and texture to your photos.

Coordinate everyone else’s photo session outfits off of your outfit

Pick your dress/outfit first and then use that as your color pallet for the rest of your family’s outfits.
