As a portrait photographer, this question pops up quite a lot prior to sessions on the phone consultation.
And with more and more maternity sessions becoming more popular, ladies want to look their best with their beautiful baby bumps.
During pregnancy, ladies tend to feel, bloated and swollen and a great way to boost their self confidence and self esteem is to book a Pregnancy photo shoot, as well as stunning imagery of their changing body, a memory keepsake, or even just a record of how large their bumps were, it is my job to make 'YOU' feel amazing.
So you take the plunge, pick up the phone and book your session.........EEEEKKKK 'what do I wear?
If you were any thing like me during pregnancy, then nothing fitted, and if it fitted it was horrible and frumpy :-(
What I suggest to ladies, wear just your skin, or underwear. If you feel a little insecure bring along a pair of jeans and your hubby's shirt, by the end of the shoot you are confident to show of your new beautiful shape.
Maternity Photoshoot - must have props
"ok I have every thing on your list, but I have stretch marks"
If you are self conscious of your 'Tigeress Stripes' these can be taken care of in the editing room after the shoot - if required.
Now I have gone a little off topic now as I should be advising you of what to wear during your session - well we have already covered it, just check these ladies out who kept it simple during their session, Jeans, Shirt, Underwear. I will let you look at the images and decide.
