These are all valid questions and I will be diving into them in this blog! And, to top it off, I also included maternity photoshoot outfit ideas throughout this blog, too! Keep scrolling to see all the goodies to help plan your maternity photoshoot.

Choosing an Outfit with Movement for your Maternity Photoshoot Outfit

One important role is in the movement of the clothes. Think about all the candid shots that can be captured when moving around in the shoot and the wind hits perfectly. The movement of your outfit can add amazing photos to your shoot! Flowy off the shoulder dresses are an absolutely favorite of mine! Flowy dresses add movement to photos, so as you’re walking around, dancing with your partner or just letting the wind do its thing. Additionally, they add such a dreamy and emotional touch to the photos. I can’t recommend flowy dresses enough!

Choosing the Right Colors

Earthy tones or soft pastels are the way to go. They complement nature so beautifully and easily pair with other earthy toned outfits! Please avoid wearing black, navy, or any super dark colors. They tend to hide the bump, which isn’t the look we’re aiming for! Also, If your partner’s joining, solid colors or subtle patterns work best. Aim for complementary, not matching looks. 

Comfort is Key! 

One thing that needs to be emphasized is the fact that this is your shoot and your photos. You need to feel comfortable in what you are wearing and making sure what you are wearing represents you as a person and together as a couple. So, If you choose a location where you will be walking around to capture the best backdrop for your photos, make sure to choose something comfortable to wear! Of course looking fabulous is important but being comfortable is crucial especially when we are out in nature. 

Add Accessories

When choosing accessories to wear to your maternity photoshoot, consider subtle jewelry. Think jewelry, hairpieces, or hats. So, basically anything that compliments but isn’t overwhelming.
