4 Go-To Looks for Maternity Photos

Figuring out what to wear when you are 8 months pregnant is difficult enough, but now you have to find the perfect outfit for your maternity photoshoot? Maternity photos will be some of the most beautiful and intimate photos that you’ll ever take and having the perfect outfit is essential to making your photos look amazing. No pressure, right? 

Don’t worry, I got you! I have photographed many pregnant women and I have found 4 go-to looks that make all pregnant women look incredible and photograph like the pregnant goddess they are! Here are my four favorite looks for maternity photoshoots. 

LOOK 1: The Maxi Dress

Pregnant women always look amazing in maxi dresses. Plus, they are super comfortable, so you’ll feel amazing too! That’s a win-win! Maxi dresses always look amazing on any pregnant body because they are incredibly flattering and they cover up anything you feel self-conscious about, but they also hug that baby belly perfectly to showcase it for photos. Plus, they always flow beautifully in the wind and make for gorgeous photographs. You can’t go wrong wearing a maxi dress to your maternity shoot.

LOOK 2: The Belt

The perfect way to showcase that beautiful belly of yours in an incredibly flattering way is to wear a belt. Place the belt just below your bosom, right where your baby bump starts. This will create a waistline that will define your belly to give you a gorgeous figure. A belt really highlights your baby bump in all the right ways! Whether you pair a fun accent belt with a solid dress or pick something neutral to go with a fun patterned shirt, either look will be so flattering on you.

LOOK 3: 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.

LOOK 4: The Tight Clothes

I know you may not always feel your best when pregnant, and the idea of tight clothing may sound intimidating. But I promise you, showing off that baby bump with tight clothing always photographs beautiful and will showcase how incredible your baby bump is. Pregnancy is a miracle and should be celebrated, so don’t hide that baby bump under a loose blouse. I promise you are going to want to remember that baby bump when you look at these pictures in years to come. 

Now take a sigh of relief, and go find the perfect outfit for your maternity shoot by following these go-to tips. I promise if you follow these tips, you will FEEL as amazing as you LOOK and you will have photographs that you will cherish forever.
