What should I wear?
Mainly, make sure you are comfortable
A maxi dress is an obvious go to! A fitted maxi dress is a very popular outfit for maternity sessions because it shows off a pregnant woman’s very best asset, her baby bump! Choose something that will accentuate your bump, like a dress, long knitted jumper, or any outfit you feel good in.
Don’t feel limited to just a dress you can wear a lace top with a pair of jeans or an open blouse with a long flowing skirt. They are plenty of options, hopefully you can see a few ideas from some of our clients in this post, above all, try to always keep your personal style. In other words, avoid trends. If you’re investing in quality maternity photos, you don’t want to look back in time and think “why was I wearing that?!” We prefer just wearing a simple flowy dress in a neutral tone.
White is beautiful and allows your bump to really show because it’s not distracting, avoid anything with a big logo on it or bold stripes. Solid colours are best! If you like a pattern then your partner should wear something that complements it.
You can bring a couple of changes of clothes with you to the session, this way, you will have variety in the images, but be mindful of the colours and that they blend. Wear your first outfit to the session and as we are shooting we´ll see if you would like a change of outfit or not, but it´s always good to have options with you.
You will most probably have a few of your baby’s items or clothes, bring something significant along with you and we can include it in your maternity session.
