Being pregnant may have its ups and downs but it's a special time in your life like no other. In the past there didn't seem to be many photos of women being pregnant and that's a shame since it is such a beautiful time in your life. Fortunately, things change and now maternity photography is more mainstream with unique ideas that make beautiful photos you'll cherish forever.
There are numerous ideas of how you may want to capture this moment and here are some of the more popular ones you may want to choose.
- Relationship and Family. If there's one thing that makes for stunning maternity photography it's focusing on the surrounding relationships and family. Adding in the partner, siblings or even the family pet shows that everyone is included in this experience.
- Location. Choosing the perfect location is imperative to truly showcase your pregnancy. For instance, if you love the beach or the outdoors then an outdoor location is ideal. If homelife showcases your aesthetic then it's perfectly fine to have your photos taken in and around your home.
- Solo. Sometimes you simply want photos of yourself without anyone else in them. This allows you to show your pregnancy in a way that is personal and intimate.
- Funny Moments and Props. Sometimes we just want to have fun and this is a way to enjoy your pregnancy with photos that show off your funny side. "About to Pop" photos with bubble gum, props that include chalkboards, and ideas that aren't serious can make your pregnancy shoot not only fun but unique.
