Wardrobe: 

  • Consider wearing a long dress or gown

  • Avoid tight, short dresses

  • Avoid jeans and t-shirts for mama to be

 


ADDITIONAL Suggestions:

  • There will be close ups of your hands on your belly. You may want to get a manicure or at least ensure your fingernails and hands look their best

  • Limit the amount of jewelry as too much can be distracting

  • Hire a hair and makeup artist to help get you ready

  • Bring a prop or two if you choose - ex. newborn baby shoes

 

Floral Crowns are always a beautiful accessory for any photoshoot, especially maternity. If you're considering getting one, order it through a florist.  Fresh flowers photograph better than silk ones.

Family Styling:

Once you've picked out your wardrobe, you'll have to choose what your family will wear.  

  • Limit the number of patterns to one or two people (you don't want florals, plaids and more in one image, so choose one person to wear patterns)

  • Choose 3-4 colors and stay within that color scheme to avoid outfits being too busy looking
