Preparing for Maternity Photos

First things first: this is a very special time in your life.

So dress in a way that makes you feel beautiful.

Some women like to wear a gorgeous maternity dress. Whether it’s loose and flowey or fitted, pick out something that you really like. Other women want a more pared-down look with a crop top exposing their belly. Or whatever, it’s totally up to you. Usually sticking with solid colors in neutral or jewel-tones works best. Bring 2 or 3 outfits and I can help you sort out what we’ll use. Oftentimes I can more easily visualize how a certain outfit will photograph vs how it looks in person.

The makeup is important to define the natural contours of your face, especially your eyes and lips.

There’s no need for a super-dramatic look. But please wear at least eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. If you’re a makeup veteran then you’ll know how to achieve your favorite natural look with your preferred products.

Plan to be in the studio for about 1 hour. We may go an extra 15 minutes if we’re doing a second outfit.

And that’s it! You’re photo-ready and feeling great!
