While conducting a maternity photo session for the new child, do not forget about the elder sibling (if you have one). Include him in the photoshoot too. Take some photos that show both the parents and the elder sibling playing, or interacting or walking hand in hand with the parents. Click some solos with him too, where he is talking to the belly or kissing it. this will create some intimate moments.

  • Wardrobe

Just like any other events like weddings or birthday parties, maternity photoshoots also demand attention towards clothing. This is because the type of clothes you wear to the maternity photoshoot should be something that highlights your baby bump and accentuates your belly. You can consider wearing something that is either tight-fitting or something that reveals your belly for the photo session.

  • Hands and legs

For maternity photoshoots, the focus is upon the belly. So while finalizing your poses opt for something that highlights your belly and focuses less upon your legs and hands. For example, stand at a 45-degree angle to the camera with cross legs while your hands are placed on your belly, such that one of your hands is a little above your belly while your other hand is placed slightly below your navel.

  • Footwear

While doing a maternity photoshoot avoid heels. This is because during this time the feet in women tend to swell soon. Hence try to avoid heels and instead opt for something that is cozy and comfortable, like shoes.

  • Play and have fun

In all these things, do not forget to enjoy and have fun during the photoshoot. Play a little and enjoy yourself and then capture those real moments in the camera because those are ultimately what will make for the best photographs.
