Motherhood is a beautiful experience. It’s an amazing journey of bringing a new life to this world. Each moment is special because it changes you. Its effect is forever and it renovates your body and soul. A maternity photoshoot is all about capturing this journey. It is all about those precious moments where you are in the transition phase of becoming a mother. 

Listed below is everything you need to know to be ready for your shoot. From dresses to the location we got you covered.

When to go for a maternity photoshoot?

The best time to get yourself and your cute baby bump captured is 28 to 36 weeks into the pregnancy. We are sure you would hate to waddle around praying for your bladder to not let you down and pee yourself. It’s a perfect time as your belly is not too big to make it uncomfortable for you to move around. If you are expecting twins, then you should go for your maternity photoshoot around the 24th week. 

What to wear for your maternity photoshoot?

We know that you have a lot on your plate right now. With shopping for your little one and preparing your home for the newest member of your family, you might not get enough time to plan your outfits. Worry not, we have customized a list of best outfit ideas for you.

The best-suited outfit for you will be a dress. Dresses are fluid and allow unrestricted movement. Putting on a dress will let you flaunt your baby bump easily. 

  • Floral Dress: Flowers are always elegant and classy. Putting on a floral dress I’ll give you a feminine and elegant look. It’s a perfect match if your style is soft, cute and delicate.
  • Polka Dotted Dress: No matter the generation, polka dots are always classy, elegant and an all-time favourite. It’s modern with a slightly retro feel. If you are a fan of aesthetics this one’s for you.
  • Colour blocking: Try out a dress with vibrant colours. It brings out the glow in you. Mix and match and play with your favourites. You can never go wrong with these.
  • Go Monochrome: Monochromes are trendy and cool. Try out various shades of beige, brown, and white. You can go for bold and do yellow or play the green card and try out shades of green.

Other than dresses you can try crop tops with skirts, or go for jeans if you can comfortably put them on. Accessorize with a tiara made of flowers. Wear a garland. Or you can try getting a Mandala drawn on your baby bump.

Where to go for your Maternity Photoshoot?

Now the dress is ready, you know how to accessorize and you know when to go for it but what about the location? Well, the location can be as simple as the studio or going all extra and opting for an outside shoot. 

Studio photoshoot will give you the perfect lighting and you’ll look exceptional, but going outside in gardens or near a lake can be a refreshing experience for you.

Besides these, you can do it in your baby’s nursery or at your home. The cosiness of your home will keep you at ease. You can play around with different stuff. Surround yourself with soft toys or add a little drama with loads of maternity magazines, it’s all up to you.

With these ideas, it’s a wrap up now. We have done our part of getting you all the details for a perfect maternity photo shoot. Now all you have to do is get yourself a fabulous outfit or outfits and book a photographer. P.S: Don’t forget to involve your baby father, after all, men and babies are a great look.
