When choosing which dress or outfit to wear for a maternity shoot, there’s no need to stress. Half the battle is deciding the overall look you want.
To start, consider these things:
1. What style feels most like you?
2. What clothes will best show off your baby bump?
3. Does this style highlight your features?
4. What season are we taking these photos in? Will they be done in studio or outdoor?
I’ve researched, curated and documented the cutest trends to wear during your maternity shoot. You can decide what trend suits you the best.
Overalls, denim jackets and sneakers are the staples of this style. Choose this cute and casual feel if you like your photos to feel more relaxed. Your partner can simply match you by wearing his comfy pair of jeans and a crisp white t-shirt.
You can find reasonably priced maternity jeans and overalls at Old Navy.
Are you a fan of the royal family, especially Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle’s maternity style? If so I pulled together a few of these ideas. You need a tighter neutral colored dress in a soft material that will show off your bump. If the weather is cool you may add a smart coat as a classy sophisticated elegant addition.
Your partner can match you by wearing a button down shirt in neutral color with a casual blazer.
Light and flowy dresses are perfection in photoshoots. This trend is perhaps the most popular choice I see in maternity shoots. There is something stunning about the way long and flowy dresses compliment a light and airy background, especially at sunset. They’ll highlight your bump, look elegant and feminine, while also helping you feel easy and breezy.
Your partner can match you by wearing a suit with tie matching the color of your dress.
There are different styles, colors and price ranges of dresses to choose from.
If you like to bring a big personality to your maternity shoot, wear bold prints and bright colors. ‘Mama leopard’ can be fun and classy look to wear. Velvet wrap dresses will add a bold dimension to your photos. Bright color, puffy sleeves, need I say more?
