Tips On How To Take Beautiful Pregnancy Pictures


Congratulations! This is a very exciting time in your life and having pictures to show how beautiful  you are, will be a great memory.  I know most women hate the weight gain and feel they look awful.  But to be carrying your child in you and showing the marvels of your body is extraordinary. 

To get the best pictures of you pregnant keep a few things in mind:

  • Pose with your hip away from the camera and your shoulder closest to the camera down.

  • To get rid of your double chin, bring your chin forward like a turtle.

  • Wear clothing that will flatter your changing shape.  I so love an exposed pregnant belly, but make sure the rest of the clothing around you flatters you.  Also most women like how they look with their upper arms covered.  Having a variety of outfits helps to give you a few options.

  • Professional makeup that's camera ready, will always make your pictures pop.

  • 7 months- seems to be the best time to have your maternity pictures taken.  Your belly is a nice size, not too small and not too big.

  • Make sure your nails are done.  Sounds silly but this is definitely one photo session where your hands are in the main focal spot. 


I hope this helps you when you have your pregnancy pictures taken.  By doing these steps you're sure to get the maternity photos you have always wished for!
