Maternity photos are the moment you want to cherish for the rest of your life. A maternity photo is a beautiful moment to capture as it is not always going to come at any time in our life. So, as long as we still can capture it, of course, we want to make the special moment to be captured so we can remember and cherish it for the rest of our life. Maternity photos are not an ordinary photo session. You need to look both amazing and comfortable while doing to photo session. In this article, I will show you some of the maternity photography clothing ideas that you can apply to your maternity photo session. Hopefully, this article can give you some inspiration of what to wear and (maybe) even the ambient of the mood and views around your photo surroundings. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Choose The Clothes That Can Create A Flattering Figure for Your Maternity Photos


Choosing the right kind of clothes is very important if you want to have the perfect maternity photos. The right kind of clothes can make you look amazing in your photos. That is why this is the most important tip you must remember. There are many types of clothes you can choose for your maternity photo sessions. Flattering clothes that can pull off the accent of your body is a good choice to have. These are some of the maternity photo clothes that you might want to consider wearing:

  • A dress/top that is tight up top. The clothes must be tight to just above the belly.
  • A dress or skirt that flares out starting just above the belly. Of course, you do not want the clothes to be tight underneath the belly. Because it may make you feel uncomfortable wearing that. There are a lot of dresses like that out there. Some people like that too. At the end of the day, fashion is a personal preference. However, I prefer a flowy skirt and dress that can allow you to have lots of movement. Not only the clothes can make us feel comfortable wearing them, but also I think personally the flowy clothes also look more flattering. Moreover, that type of clothes will also give you something to play with or swish around. So you can have more options of poses for your maternity photo sessions.
  • The length of the dress should be to the floor (optional). But the dress should not be too much longer because you don’t want to trip on it. Also, it is okay if the dress is slightly shorter if you want to show off your footwear. But typically a floor-length dress is the most flattering choice for your maternity photo session.

These are the type of dress and maternity clothing for your maternity photo sessions. I think these types of clothes will create a good choice of outfit for your maternity photos. Remember to choose high-quality garments for your clothes to make you feel comfortable wearing the clothes. Also, if possible, it is good to choose well-tailored clothes that are created for you only so the clothes can fit perfectly for you.

The Colour of Clothes You Must Wear


The choice of colours for your clothes is also important. Especially if you want to do a maternity photo session. As we all know, different tones and colours of the clothes can give different impressions to your looks too. So, it is very important to find the right choice of colours for your clothes. Make sure you get to choose the colour that can show off your beautiful bump! Avoid wearing black or navy or any other super dark colour. Because the darker colour hides the bump and makes it hard to see. Of course, it is not something you want because you want to show off your beautiful bump in the maternity photos. However, do not wear the neon colour either because it will be too bright. The choice of light to medium colours will look best on you.

Choose The Right Pattern


Dress in solid colour and or the dress that has some accents such as lace or crepe fabrics are some of the good choices that you might want to consider. Moreover, dresses with patterns are also great! But you need to consider the pattern is suitable for the type of maternity photo that you want. You must select the right choice of pattern for your dress. Medium-sized patterns are very suitable for a maternity photoshoot. Because the patterns that are too tiny can be too busy to look at and can become really distracting. However, the patterns that are too big are also not all that flattering to look at either.

Dress According to The Season


Before you take the photos, make sure to think about the weather when deciding what to wear for your maternity photos. Because it is important for you to not only look beautiful, amazing and gorgeous but also comfortable while wearing your clothes. If it is going to be hot out, you must pick a more breathable fabric. On the contrary, if it is going to be cold, you can look for a long-sleeved dress, or bring a chunky knit cardigan to go over the top. Wearing chunky knits are great because you can wear it off your shoulders and it looks amazing, and then between shots, you can cuddle up and get warm. You should bring some extra maternity clothing too. Bringing another outfit to your maternity session is a great idea just in case unexpected things are happening during your photo shoot and it can also give you some variety of results in your photos.
