I love having all the almost mama’s in my studio. They are glowing and are so stunning. Deciding what to wear in your maternity session is a huge task and can be incredibly overwhelming. I want every almost-mama that comes in my studio to feel their best. Here are the top 5 looks that I have gathered over the years for maternity sessions. Hopefully, this can make the job a little easier for you.
I get a lot of moms that want a very classy, but high-fashion vibe. I typically recommend a form-fitted, floor-length gown, and heels. It is simple but can be so striking, especially if you get a dress with a little bit of a train. Stunning. This is a personal favorite, given my background in high-fashion photography.
On the opposite end, I get Moms who are sporty and want to be more comfortable. Super simple spandex, a white tank top and some cute knee-high socks kill this look. So effortless, fun, and easy to achieve.
I am so lucky to have a diverse client base, and sometimes I get women who want to bring their culture into their session. For that bring your Sari, or whatever speaks to you, and represent your culture in a personal way. We can really celebrate you and your culture.
Now granted, not everyone is feeling they look their best when they are pregnant, but this is truly a time to drop the self-consciousness and really celebrate your body. Some women are comfortable with an all-nude session and some prefer semi-nude, but I have never had a mom regret their decision. Every mom has told me how comfortable I have made them feel and that they came away feeling really beautiful.
A sexier session is also super fun. Believe it or not, there are a ton of stunning maternity lingerie options out there. You can also just use non-maternity lingerie or transparent wraps. Find the pieces that make you feel confident and sexy, and rock them in your session.
I also came across this Maternity Dress Rental website, if you don’t want to buy one. Another pro-tip- check out Etsy too. There are some incredible makers out there, that can make a matching dress for an older daughter if you want her in your session too.
You need to feel confident during your maternity session. These are popular looks I have seen over the years, but if something else makes you feel better- own it! Hopefully, these looks bring you some inspiration. Please call or text me at 214.864.5787 or use my online contact form and I’ll get back to you quickly, usually within one day. I look forward to speaking with you.
