Tips to Prepare for Your Maternity Portrait Session

June 10, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Congratulations on the pending arrival of your little one! If you are interested in a maternity photo session, the first thing you should consider is the timeframe, ideally around your seventh month. Once on the calendar, it’s time to prepare. In addition to my normal style tips, here are four more:

  1. Moisturize your bump! Stretch marks are part of the process, and dry skin is common, but let’s make it looks as good as we can.
  2. Choose body-conscious clothing that will accentuate your belly without being too tight or restrictive.
  3. Make sure you share the types of images you want with your photographer. As an example, is having the father kissing your belly classic or cheesy? Are you looking for implied nudes? Do you want to include any older children?
  4. Don’t forget to bring any sentimental items, like your ultrasound picture or heirloom baby blanket or toy.

This is such a wonderful time to document your growing family and your life’s true beauty.


Women are multi-faceted, and I love helping them share images that show their authentic, beautiful, confident shine! How do you want to be photographed? Let's meet over coffee and talk about it. Contact me: text/call 434-226-0365 or email [email protected].
