Pose with your Partner during your Natural Maternity Photoshoot

One of the best ways to capture the essence of your pregnancy journey is by including your partner in the photoshoot. Your partner’s presence adds depth and emotion to the images, showcasing the bond you share as you anticipate the arrival of your little one. Whether it’s a sweet embrace, a playful interaction, or a shared moment of anticipation, involving your partner will result in authentic and intimate photos.

Celebrate with your Kids at your Natural Maternity Photoshoot

If you already have children, including them in your maternity photoshoot can illustrate your family’s growth. Siblings eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new brother or sister make for heartwarming and genuine moments. During the photoshoot, our photographer Jayme will encourage them to interact with your baby bump, so they can  express their excitement and love for their new sibling.

Swap the Flowy Dress for Denim Jeans

For a more casual look, consider wearing denim during your maternity photoshoot. Denim is a versatile and timeless fabric that exudes a relaxed, Calvin Klein vibe. Pair it with a fitted cami or bandeau top to create a stylish yet comfortable look. The simplicity of denim allows the focus to remain on your baby bump and your natural glow, resulting in a laid-back and chic aesthetic.

Take Black-and-White Shots of your Baby Bump

Black and white photography has a timeless and classic appeal. It removes the distractions of color and emphasizes the emotions and expressions captured in the image. Opting for black and white shots during your maternity photoshoot can also add a touch of  sophistication. The monochromatic tones highlight the beauty of your pregnancy and create a sense of timelessness that will make your photos look effortlessly striking.

Wear Casual Loungewear at your Natural Maternity Photoshoot

If silk and lingerie aren’t your thing, choose casual loungewear for your maternity photoshoot. Soft, comfortable fabrics like cotton or knit can create a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. You can wear a leotard, oversized sweaters, or comfortable sets that allow you to move freely and feel at ease. These outfits will create a sense of comfort and warmth in the photographs.
