Deciding what to wear can be a daily struggle when you're pregnant, so let's just add the stress of deciding what to wear to your maternity photo shoot while you're super pregnant and full of crazy hormones. You obviously want to look your best and have your photos come out beautiful, but the struggle is real my friends. If you're searching for the perfect outfit to wear to your upcoming maternity shoot, here are some ideas that will help you look and feel your best, while showing off that perfect bump of yours!
When we moved to Atlanta in February I was in dire need to find a photographer for maternity and newborn photos so took to Instagram to find Hayley and boy am I glad I did! If you’re in need of a photographer in Atlanta to capture your life’s greatest moments, check out Hayley Johnson Photography!
What To Wear To A Maternity Photo Shoot
Flowy Maxi Dress
A flowy maxi dress is perfect for a maternity shoot because it's so comfortable. And we all want to be as comfortable as we can be around 30+ weeks pregnant. It covers up anything you don't want shows but can also show off your baby bump when pulled against your belly. Not to mention the flowy fabric creates a movement in a snapshot.
A Tight Fitting Dress
I'm all about the tight fitting dresses for maternity shoots. You're only pregnant once-ish (unless your planning on having a few more kids) so rock that baby bump proud Mommy. I love a tight bodycon dress on a pregnant body because it shows all your beautiful curves.
Talk to your photographer about having two outfits for your maternity shoot, you could opt for a casual outfit and a dressy outfit. This will give you options when picking out which photos you want in your house forever. I went with a more casual flowy dress and a dressier tight bodycon dress, and was so excited to see the different shots Hayley was able to take.
