Things have certainly changed since I was pregnant many years ago. Being pregnant is a time in your life that nothing else will EVER compare to. I suppose we can thank Demi Moore for introducing us to the possibility of having a beautiful portrait created of us during that time.
Expectant mothers today like to document their pregnancy with maternity portraits. There is a fascination with pregnancy and the changes it brings to the body of a mother. Taking a portrait of an expectant mother has become very popular. A pregnancy portrait is not just a souvenir for the baby, but also a way to adapt to your new body image.
Below are a few tips for taking pictures during your pregnancy.
Tip no. 1: During pregnancy, women are not sure what to wear to a maternity photo shoot. Wardrobe should be kept simple to show off the pregnancy. You don’t need to buy an expensive maternity gown.
Tip no. 2: Pregnancy takes the most part of a year, and an expectant mother may want to wait until the third trimester before planning for a maternity portrait. A big belly is part of the beauty of a pregnancy.
Tip no. 3: A maternity portrait can be in black and white, color or sepia tones.
Tip no. 4: Posing for maternity photos means getting your best side. Photos are usually taken of the mother standing up because the position needs to show the stomach fully. However, other poses can also be done.
Tip 5: There are many choices for clothing (or not) in your pregnant portrait. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk to you about your options…AND
