No affair what your size, a professional photographer can help you feel astonishing about the experience.

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your shoot and ensure you finish upwardly with photos that you’ll treasure forever:


Everybody has them!

Make sure yous discuss any insecurities with your lensman before the shoot.

I always ask my clients if there is any particular thing they don’t feel comfortable with. Then I can be sensitive of this during shoots.

No affair who I’one thousand photographing, motherhood photography is all about angles. And I employ them to my advantage to make the most of client’s figures.


What yous wear makes a huge difference in how your portraits will plow out.

I advise my clients to avoid anything that is too tight around the belly to avert lines and bumps. Fitted tops or flowy dresses are both great choices to emphasize that babe bump!

I have a wardrobe of plus size maternity dresses for my clients to use during sessions. These specialty dresses are specifically made for photo shoots and emphasize your beautiful bump.

Trust Your Photographer

Hopefully, you choose a photographer because y’all love their style and portfolio. During your session let them direct you! Trust that they are going to capture the best “you.”
