Bringing a new life into the world is a truly magical and unforgettable experience. As a mother, it's a moment you will cherish forever and want to look back on with your little one as they grow up. If you're thinking about or have recently booked a maternity photo session, I have some tips to help you prepare for it and make it even more special.
1- Schedule your session between 31 and 36 weeks, as your tummy should have popped and have a beautiful shape. By booking your maternity session during this time you are also past the discomfort and bloating that happens earlier in the pregnancy.
2- Choose the right outfit: Pick an outfit that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. This can be a flowy dress, a favorite outfit, or even a simple white t-shirt and jeans.
3 - Location, location, location: Think about the location of the photo shoot. This can be at home, in a park, or even at the beach. Wherever you choose, make sure it has special meaning to you and your family.
4 - Bring sentimental items: Consider bringing a special object or sentimental items to the photo shoot. This could be a baby blanket, a book or even a special piece of jewelry, that have special meaning to you and your family.
5 - Timing is everything: Plan your photo shoot for the time of day when you feel your best and your bump is at its most photogenic.
6- Practice your poses: Try different poses in front of the mirror to find the ones that make you feel the most confident and comfortable.
7- Relax and have fun: Don't forget to relax and enjoy the experience. It's a special time, and the photos will reflect the love and joy that you and your family are feeling. Remember to breathe and be present in the moment, it will show in the pictures and make them even more special.
Maternity photo session is not just about capturing beautiful images, it's about capturing the emotions, the love and the joy of the arrival of a new life. Embrace the beauty of your pregnancy, and let the memories of this special time stay with you forever.
