The Solid Color

We want the main focus of the shoot to be on that glorious baby bump of yours, so don’t have your clothing take attention away from it. Solid colors will make your baby bump stand out and look flawless.

Patterns on your baby bump can sometimes make it look distorted or bigger/smaller than it is, so try and avoid bold fabrics. If you want to incorporate patterns into your shoot, have that be your partner’s role and have them wear a coordinating pattern.
