Tips for photographing your pregnancy

Every pregnant Mother grows and carries differently, and so determining the best time for pregnancy photos will vary for everyone. Usually between 28-36 weeks is a good time and it is often before the real swelling begins. You want to make sure you have a nice round bump and are visibly pregnant. When planning your session, determining your style will set the tone.

Conservative – tight fitting maxi or other dresses, long flow skirts or tight tops work well for showing your bump while keeping covered.

Sexy – Check out your lingerie drawer and pull out some cute bras and boy shorts. If you do not have any that fit, hit the maternity or plus size department store and splurge a little.

Casual – Jeans, casual skirts, sweaters and tank tops all work well.

Romantic – Look for dresses that flow, vintage items and accessories, bring out the headbands, scarves and flowers.

Classic – Look for simple clothing that have clean lines, such as bandeaus and a-line skirts.

Once you determined your timing, and figured out the clothing, take some time to document some extra special items that represent this time, such as adding sonogram photos or baby shoes.

One thing for sure is it’s better to capture this time them not! Many women often say they didn’t “feel” up for it, but later regret it. At the end of the day, it’s just one hour or so for a lifetime of memories.
