CONGRATULATIONS!


You're expecting! Now comes the fun part before baby arrives – maternity photos! Here are 6 helpful tips when you're searching for the perfect maternity dress for your maternity photo session.

1) Something you feel comfortable wearing


Being pregnant isn't the most comfortable thing, so wearing something that is comfortable is highly recommended. A flowy dress is your best bet. Depending on the time of the year, it's wise to keep in mind how comfortable something is depending on the weather. If your maternity photos are going to take place in the summer, go with something loose fitting and light colored to avoid feeling overheated.

3) Something with a subtle pattern


If you don't want to wear a solid color, opt for a maternity maxi dress with a subtle pattern. When looking at maternity dresses, you want to make sure the print or pattern isn't too distracting. You're the main focus in these maternity photos, not some loud distracting print or pattern.

4) a dress that shows off the bump


After all, you are pregnant and you have an adorable bump to show for it! Choosing a maternity dress that shows it off is most important! You're only pregnant for nine months, and for some of us, we're only pregnant once. Make sure you choose to wear a dress that truly shows off that bump!
