You might not always feel like it, but your pregnancy is one of the most beautiful times in your life. You’ll definitely want to capture this time in photographs that you and your child will cherish for years to come. Here are five ways to get the most from your maternity photography session.
You’ll want to schedule your maternity shoot for a time in your pregnancy when your beautiful bump is most prominent but you aren’t ready to have the baby at any moment.
The 7th or 8th month of pregnancy is a good time to have your portrait taken.
Work Your Clothing
Bring several different outfits to your session. Choose something that shows off your growing belly rather than attempting to hide it.
An empire waist dress looks great on a mom-to-be, and a pair of jeans with a white top is always a classic.
At Fairies and Frogs, we can offer you several lovely gowns and robes to wear as well. The gowns and robes are specifically made for expecting mamas, so they are comfortable and flattering and will make you feel like the gorgeous mama that you are!
Bring the Family
You will love your maternity pictures even more if they include the dad-to-be as well as any older siblings or grandparents you choose to involve.
Beautiful maternity portraits communicate love. That sense of love grows with every person you add to your session.
Be as well rested as you can before your photo shoot. Good rest makes your skin and face glow, and your portraits will benefit.
At the same time, don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Pregnancy can be hard on your sleep cycles. If this is you, don’t worry.

The stylist will be be here at the studio to pamper you before your session!
