Maternity Wardrobe Must-Haves: Capture Your Pregnancy Glow in Stunning Photos

Hey mamas-to-be!  Your maternity photoshoot is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to capture that special pregnancy glow. But let’s be honest, picking out outfits can be stressful! Fear not, gorgeous! This post is here to guide you through some maternity wardrobe essentials that will flatter your figure and create stunning photos you’ll cherish forever.

Comfort First, Photos Second (Kind Of!)

Pregnancy is all about embracing change, and feeling comfy is key. Think soft, breathable fabrics like cotton, jersey, and modal. Clothes with stretchy waistbands or adjustable features will be your best friend as your bump grows.

Show Off that Bump!

This is your time to shine, mama! Rock clothes that celebrate your beautiful belly. Here are some ideas that photographers love:

  • Maxi Marvels:

    Flowy maxi dresses are a total win. They work anywhere, from a beach backdrop to a fancy studio setting. The long, elegant silhouette flatters your figure and adds a touch of movement to the photos.

  • Fit for a Form-Fitting:

    Don’t be afraid of body-con dresses! They hug your curves and create a glamorous look. Choose a dress with ruching or an empire waist for extra comfort.

  • Off-the-Shoulder Swoon:

    Off-the-shoulder tops add a touch of femininity and romance. Pair them with high-waisted jeans or a flowy skirt for a relaxed yet stylish vibe.

  • Wrap It Up:

    Wrap dresses are universally flattering. The adjustable tie ensures a perfect fit throughout your pregnancy, and the cinched waist highlights your curves beautifully.

But Wait, There’s More!

Celebrating your bump is important, but having some outfit variety creates a well-rounded look for your photoshoot. Here are some extra outfit ideas:

  • The Classic Combo:

    Flowy tops and jeans are a comfy and versatile choice. Pick a flowy top in a soft fabric with a flattering neckline. Dress it up with heels or keep it casual with sandals.

  • Cozy Up in Knitwear:

    An oversized sweater or knit dress creates a warm and intimate feel, perfect for colder weather shoots or if you just prefer a looser silhouette.

Accessorize Like a Pro:

The right accessories can take your maternity look from good to great! Here are some ideas to elevate your outfit:

  • Statement Jewellery:

    A bold necklace or earrings add a pop of personality.

  • Belting it Out:

    A stretchy or adjustable belt worn just below the bust highlights your bump and creates a defined silhouette.

  • Headpiece Heaven:

    A floral crown or headband adds a whimsical touch, especially for outdoor settings.

Planning Makes Perfect

  • Partner in Style:

    Coordinate outfits with your partner for couple shots. Choose outfits that complement each other’s style for a cohesive look.

  • Location, Location, Location:

    Opt for lighter fabrics for beach shoots and warmer options for outdoor winter sessions.

  • Chat with Your Photographer:

    Get their input on colors, styles, and the overall mood you want to create.

Remember, the most important accessory is your confidence!

With these tips and a positive attitude, you’ll capture maternity photos that are pure magic. Now go out there and rock that beautiful baby bump, mama!



My photography business started with me taking pictures for friends and family so I can create memories for them to cherish. When I started looking into how I can become a better photographer, I found that I had an eye for taking snaps of those cute lumpkins. I am honored every day when I take care of the most beautiful families and tiny babies on earth- not only in Milton but other areas of Ontario, CA.
