Tips for a Fabulous Maternity Photo Session

  1. Schedule your session for the right time, this is typically in your seventh or eighth month of pregnancy.  You want your belly to have a nice round shape for the photographs.
  2. Consider using props in your session.  This can be an ultrasound photo, baby blankets, booties or anything else that holds sentimental value to you.
  3. Do you want to include the baby’s father and or other siblings?  Or would you prefer to focus solely on Mom and Baby?
  4. Make sure to discuss what types of photos you are interested in with your photographer.  For example, are you comfortable showing bare belly, or would you prefer to keep your belly covered?  You should also discuss wardrobe selection.  This can be very important to capture the style of photos you are interested in.  Ask your photographer for suggestions.
  5. Moisturize before your session.  Make sure to apply lotion to your knees, elbows and belly before your session.
  6. There are many details to photograph, hands will show in many close up photos.  Consider what type of nail polish will fit the style of photos you wish to capture.
  7. All tight fitting clothing and jewelry should be removed a few hours before your maternity photos.  You don’t want any lines or marks showing on your skin.
