Maternity photoshoots have become a must-do for most pregnancies with the parents-to-be wanting a memory of their pregnancy to cherish for years to come. Maive & Bo have a range of dresses for maternity photoshoots, shop the range here.
When to shoot: The perfect time to get a maternity photo shoot done is at around 30 weeks gestation so you’re showing enough to warrant a maternity photo shoot but your belly is not overly heavy and uncomfortable. If you’re pregnant with multiples, you might be able to schedule the photoshoot at around 24 weeks gestation as you’ll be showing much earlier.
Where to shoot: In terms of location, a maternity photoshoot can take place wherever you desire – you can be as creative as you like! Some people use the opportunity to get in touch with nature with some maternity photo shoot ideas including a beach-side venue, in a forest or a field. Other mothers like to organise the shoot indoors such as in the baby’s nursery or at a studio where the background and lighting can be carefully controlled by the photographer.
What to wear: A growing trend across maternity photoshoots is to bare all in a Demi Moore-style nude maternity shoot. This is a breath-taking way to capture the woman’s changing figure however if you’re looking for maternity photoshoot ideas that are a little less revealing, Maive & Bo have a range of maternity dresses that flatter the pregnant figure whilst still showing off the pregnant belly.
One of Maive & Bo’s top maternity photoshoot dresses is the Aria Cold Shoulder Dress. This wrap style dress fits all stages of pregnancy and post-partum. It ties flatteringly above the bump and the flowy skirt cascades in a tulip style. This dress also features a cold shoulder and flutter sleeve detail that photographs beautifully and comes in two colours – Black Cherry and Blossom. To see more, click here.
Who can be involved: While many expecting mothers have the maternity shots taken alone, many get their partners along to have both expecting parents in the pictures. If you have children already, involving them in the images can be a really sweet way to get them involved in their new sibling’s impending arrival.
