A Subtle Guide for your Maternity Photography Session

Maternity Photography Session

Bravo! You are on a new journey now. Congratulations on the big news. As you wait and prep for your little one to enter the world and join your family, your whole focus is now to make to-do lists for the little one. One of your favorite to-do-list tasks is to have a professional maternity photoshoot. It may seem like just another item to add to your list, but a maternity shoot is a perfect time to remind you of the power and beauty of your body. You deserve to have this terrific moment in your life documented, a moment to celebrate with your partner and family. You want to share the new life you are bringing into this world.   

If you have had a pregnancy session before, you know that the best things come with a struggle. 

We put together an easy-to-read guide for everything that you need to know to make the most of your session and get images you will love.

If you want to look and feel your best at your session, then follow this guide for some tips.

1. Book your session early

It is important to book your sessions early on.  Your best shot to book an appointment would be to book your maternity session at around 20 weeks. When you reach that phase, start prepping.  Especially if you have a personal photographer, finding the right person is a task. As a piece of advice, book as early as possible to make sure they are available.

2. Plan to book for the third trimester

The best time to take your photos is in your third trimester, between 27 and 34 weeks. At this point, you will show your baby bump prominently. It will be easier to move around and pose comfortably. If you plan to do your maternity session later in your pregnancy then there is a high chance of you having trouble moving and posing, just be mindful of that.

3. Communication is Important.

Every photographer has a different way of working. Similarly, every mother-to-be has different likes and dislikes. If there are Pinterest images saved or you want to replicate then be sure that your photographer knows. Talk it out with your photographer about what images are you looking for.  Just in case you’re interested in doing partial or full nudes then talk it out about it. Comfort is everything. It is highly important to tell your photographer about what you are so comfortable with.

4. Hair and Make-up.

It’s your day, pamper yourself, you deserve it. Go ahead with a visit to your hairstylist.

We recommend all of my clients to Blush Make-up and Hair Salon, we can even book your appointment for you!

If you are unsure how to have your hair done, think about what you want your photos to look like. Go for a soft or a dramatic look. The more casual look the better. A simple hairstyle may be the perfect option. 



In conclusion, don’t stress! Everything will work out exactly as it should be. It’s easier said than done, we get it. But, we will take care of you.

Just relax. Have fun. You’re among the best of the best. Choosing me will mean I will walk you through every pose and make sure you look your best.
