Maternity Photography | Six things to do before your Maternity Session!

1. Make sure to get a neutral, light-colored manicure 1-2 days prior. You’ll be able to get those beautiful hands-on-belly shots!

2. Moisturize your knees, elbows and belly 1-2 hours before your maternity photo session to avoid added shine or sticky clothes—and take off any tighter-fitting watches or bracelets then, too, so they don’t leave marks on your skin.

3. Dress comfortably, but be sure your clothes don’t detract from your tummy’s shape and natural glow. Avoid large patterns, bold floral and thick stripes as well as clothes that are too loose. Empire waists, drawstrings, flowy tops and wrap dresses are great choices to enhance your shape. Not sure what to wear? Ask me during your pre-portrait consultation! I have several cute outfits you can wear!

4. If you have a few cute baby items—shoes, onesies, hats, blankets, toys—bring them. They’re great props and add a special piece of “baby” before he/she arrives!

5. Same goes for family heirlooms: if you have a special locket, picture or anything else that’s special to your family, bring it along.

6. Ultrasound photos are becoming popular add-ins to shoots. If you’re on the fence, bring it and decide later.
