Last week’s what to wear session focused on families; today I’m going to talk about maternity sessions. The #1 tip I can give you for a maternity session is to choose clothing that is fitted over your belly. Bulky, loose fabrics can be unflattering but fitted tops look great and really emphasize the beauty of pregnancy.
Accessories work great for maternity sessions! A trendy necklace can make a plain top really pop and make an outfit look complete.
Other fun ideas for maternity sessions include cardigans. Open cardigans over a pregnant belly look adorable, and they don’t even have to be maternity cardigans.
If you are one of the lucky ones who can fit into your (unbuttoned) pre-pregnancy jeans and want any bare belly shots, I recommend non-maternity jeans. Unbuttoned regular jeans are less distracting in photos than the band on maternity jeans. Another option for bare belly shots is an elastic-waist skirt or pants that fasten below the belly.
