Where to Get a Dress for Your Maternity Photoshoot? 

A common question I get when booking a maternity session is “What should I wear for Maternity Pictures”? In this blog post, I have some recommendations for what to wear and where to shop for an outfit for your Maternity Photos.  

What to Wear to Your Maternity Photoshoot? 

I always recommend long flowy dresses. If you are a dress person that is. :) They are flattering, timeless, and let's not forget cozy. No one wants to be in something uncomfortable when pregnancy is uncomfortable enough on its own. Maternity photo dresses also help give a more formal look which is nice for special occasion photography. Flowy dresses also help to show movement in your photos which makes your candid photos more visually intriguing. 

What is the Best Color to Wear for Maternity Photos? 

I highly recommend choosing a maternity dress with a more neutral color palette.  Neutral colors are a great way to make your images timeless and beautiful. They compliment all skin tones. Solid colors and light patterns also help to keep the focus on your and not your dress. 

Where to Buy Maternity Photo Dresses? 

Here is a list of links to favorite stores my clients like to get their dresses for their maternity shoots.
