5 Tips For an Amazing Maternity Photo Shoot

Are you thinking about booking a session for a maternity shoot? Below are Christina Louise Photography’s top tips to ensure you have an unforgettable maternity session that you’ll love.

1.   Love Your Body

Can you believe your body is doing this amazing thing? It is creating life. It is a life-changing experience that can change your life. You must own it! Your body is amazing and you don’t have to worry about how it looks.

2.   Keep Your Mind Open

Although I wouldn’t pressure you to do something you don’t feel comfortable with, if I suggest something that you’re not sure about, you can trust me to deliver something truly amazing. Trust the creative ideas running through my mind.

3.   Look Your Best in Clothes That Show Off Your Body

No matter your body type, size, breast size, or other characteristics, you should choose outfits that highlight your bump. All of my clients who are pregnant can try on dresses before they go. It’s amazing how many clients arrive at the fitting appointment with several dresses in mind and walk out with three completely different options.

4.   Love Your Location

Although I can usually find the perfect location for any style, you are free to make your own choice. Sometimes, even photos taken at home can be the best option. My clients’ homes are where I have had some of my favorite maternity sessions. These sessions are intimate and real, which makes them unforgettable.

5.   Bring Multiple Underwear Choices

It might surprise you to learn that I recommend my clients bring at least three different bra options. Although this is all about outfit choices, I believe it’s essential if you want to see the same looks that my clients see in my past images. I recommend a simple, no-frills bra with a strapless, plain black or white bra (depending on your dress choice) and a sexy, lacey bra that you are comfortable showing off with your bump.
