Maternity Shoots: Do or Don’t?

As my bump gets bigger, I’ve been considering a maternity shoot. It’s one of those things that seems super-vain on one hand, and a lovely record of my pregnancy on the other. Like any pregnant woman, I’m fascinated at how my body is changing, and the satisfying roundness of my tummy. It’s both weird and wonderful at the same time. Maternity shoots seem to be a big thing in the USA, but it’s a trend fast crossing the Atlantic. What do you think about them? Take a look at my Pinterest Maternity Shoot Inspiration board for more ideas.

    I have done quite a few maternity shoots, including of my won wife and it is certainly a lovely record of an important time in your life and if you can, I would recommend it! As your mood board suggests, there are then many styles / genres to do it: fashion, lifestyle, boudoir, documentary, creative, etc… or a mix of a few different styles. I also find that including the partner and other siblings in a few shots is a nice touch also. Happy to help if you decide to go for a shoot! Alexis
