Dress to Impress: Go Out in Style During Your Maternity Photo Shoot!
When it comes to deciding what to wear every day, it can be a struggle for women. However, deciding what to wear for your maternity photo shoot is an even bigger struggle!
Maternity photo sessions are one of the most intimate and beautiful ways to document your pregnancy—and you want to get it right.
If you are planning, it’s imperative that you dress impeccably, but comfortably. Just because it’s a maternity photo shoot, doesn’t mean you can’t spice it up with the latest fashion trends!
You want your pictures to be perfect—and your outfit plays an important role! Here’s how you can make your pictures ‘pop’ and looking stunning!
- Solidify with Solid Colors
Focus more on colors instead of patterns on your dress. This is because your photo shoot is about your baby bump. Eliminate anything that will take away the spotlight from your bump. If you want to add designs and patterns into your shoot, have your hubby wear them!
- Maximize Comfort with Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses are the epitome of comfort, which is the key to a successful maternity photo shoot! You will be shooting for an hour or more and it’s imperative that you’re in comfortable clothing to avoid any irritation or pain!
Another bonus; maxi dresses create a dramatic effect! When you’re shooting outdoors, the wind will be blowing your dress and you can utilize that for stunningly beautiful pictures!
- Skinny Belts
If you want to accentuate your beautiful baby bump, spice it up with a belt! And not just any belt—a skinny belt! Adjust it right below your bosom, where the top of your belly starts. Make sure not to make it tight, just let it be natural.
This will help highlight your baby bump and create a nice flow at the bottom of your dress.
- Pack Two Outfits
If you can’t decide between clothes, one way to make your maternity photo shoot interesting is packing two outfits!
You can opt for a very chic look and go for textured dresses that will add depth to your pictures—something alluring like a lace dress or an embroidered blouse. You can even wear a nice hat or hair accessories such as floral or beaded hair bands.
Remember that in the end, it is your photo shoot and you should be the one comfortable! Experimentation is key to a creative and unique maternity shoot!
