Maternity Sessions! I love having all the almost-mamas in my studio. However, deciding what to wear for a maternity session is a huge task, and can be incredibly overwhelming. Here are the top 5 favorite looks that I have done over the years that will hopefully make the job a little easier on you. I also send every client a style guide after their session is booked to help them with their choices.


1- High Fashion

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 if you choose. Or you can go with something flowy. Sleek and simple but so striking, especially if you get a dress with a little bit of a train. Stunning.


2- Sporty

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.









3- Cultural

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 represents your culture in a personal way.











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.



5- Sexy

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. Here is a great lace piece you could wear with or without underwear.



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 creators out there, that can also 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.
