Not sure what to wear for your maternity session? How do you achieve modern maternity pictures that are also timeless? Check out these great tips to help you prepare:

Remember, the main purpose of this session is to show off your baby bump and provide you with some beautiful, Modern maternity pictures, so be sure to wear clingier clothing to your session. It doesn’t necessarily have to be tight, but you want it to be more form fitting so you can see the bump. Just be sure that it’s still comfortable for you.

We suggest wearing shirts with some kind of sleeve on them – they are more flattering for photos. Things like a dress with 3/4 length sleeves, or a form fitting tank top with a sweater/cardigan over it are always a good idea.

Maxi dresses and tunics with cinched waists are perfect for any season and are a fan favorite when it comes to modern maternity pictures.

If you are not doing a studio session in our Denver Colorado Studio, it is a great idea to dress in layers. this will help to give you several clothing ‘looks’ without having to fully change your outfit every time

Belts can really help accentuate your bump. We suggest trying to add one to your wardrobe for this session.

Dresses with rushing at the sides also help give your bump more definition and are a great option!

Bare that belly!!!!!

This is such a wonderful time in your life. CELEBRATE IT! We love it when Mamas want to show their belly! There are some amazing 2 piece outfits or you can pair a lace crop top with a swim suit bottom like this mama did.

Raid your partner’s closet! Seriously!!!

We always suggest bringing a button-down shirt to your session. You know the white button-down your husband wears to work? Grab it! You can wear it over a tank, or if you want to expose your belly, we can use this shirt to do so, while keeping the rest of your upper body modest. It is a great option for Modern maternity pictures if you are not comfortable baring it all!

Bottom line

Be comfortable! Above all else, your comfort is the most important thing. If you’re uncomfortable, it will show on camera. Find an outfit that feels good and that you know you look good in. This will help you to relax for the best photos. We offer a client closet that has a lot of high end dresses (and this lace top that was so generously donated to us after her session! ) that will photograph beautifully! This service is complimentary to all of our client so we encourage you to take advantage of it!
