WHAT TO WEAR FOR A MATERNITY SHOOT
Avoid strong colours. Stick to white or pastels. White is SO beautiful and allows your bump to really show because it’s not distracting.
Avoid trends. If you’re investing in quality maternity photos, you don’t want to look back in 20 years thinking “why was I wearing that?!” because something is now out of style. That’s why I prefer just wearing a simple flowy dress and sticking to neutral, pastel tones.
Avoid heavy makeup. Also with the trend issue, there’s no reason for a dark smokey eye during a maternity shoot. You want to look like an enhanced version of yourself, and that’s it.
Choose a fit that’s right for you. Not all pregnant bodies are created equal, so choose a dress or outfit that will accentuate your bump. I love anything with a waistband that sits above the bump because it essentially gives you the waist you’re missing due to pregnancy!
Don’t have a dress? No STRESS! A great option is thrifting! I have found some absolute STUNNERS for such a bargain! A great alternative is rent a dress, this is a great option if you don’t have heaps of time to hunt for something all over town.
Don’t feel limited to just a dress. A great example is a gorgeous cream sweater or a stunning lace top. A neutral, natural look but switched it up for something different!
