Making the Most of Your Maternity Shoot

close up 1

 

We know that maternity shoots can be stressful, with unpredictable elements in the mix like the weather, location, and health, it’s hard to not worry about all the small details and just focus on having fun. But that’s exactly what we want you to do, is have fun! Whether this is your first, second, or third maternity shoot, we’re here to give you some tips and tricks on how to style your bump and make the most of your special day.

 

1-2


1.  This shoot is all about celebrating  your new baby, so make sure to have a couple photos with your hands placed on or below your belly. You want to accentuate your growing bump as much as possible, so have at least one hand on your bump throughout your shoot. If you have a partner with you, you could have them stand behind you with their arms coming around to caress your bump so you can do it together.

2. Half of your shoot is planning your outfit(s), so get at least one close-up of you and your gorgeous ensemble.  You can also do close-ups without facial expressions to tell a story.  A close-up of your hands making a heart, a reflection, drawn out words, or footprints are cute ways to capture a moment.

3. The most important tip is to have fun! Don’t be afraid to use sentimental or seasonal props to make your shoot      more personal or put you at ease from all the attention being on you. A pumpkin, balloons, an announcement, a baby blanket with a name on it, or baby shoes are some examples of objects you could use as a prop.

4. Try a variety of creative poses that offer a different visual perspective. You can sit, stand, walk, curtsy, or try any pose that brings a smile to your face and makes you feel beautiful. Use your outfit or what’s around you and do whatever feels natural and right for you.

5. Some of the best backdrops are what’s sitting right in front of you! Use natural elements like trees or branches as a natural frame to focus the attention on you and add a dramatic effect. The time of day is also important to consider if you are doing your shoot outside, try scheduling your shoot just before sunset for a romantic glow.

6. Just like props, have fun with accessories and try on different headbands, hats, boots, handbags, or anything you think complements your outfit. Don’t go overboard here because you want to keep it simple, but pick a couple of your favorite accessories to give your shoot a personal, stylistic touch.
