Our Top Pregnancy Photoshoot Ideas This Season

If you’re anything like us while pregnant, you’ve been sporting a messy bun for going on three days, your fave sweats could use a washing, and coughing gives your bladder the green light.

To put it simply-pregnancy doesn’t always make it easy to feel beautiful. Our bodies are constantly growing and adapting to accommodate the demanding needs of motherhood. Yet as mamas-to-be we all manage to push through by sharing one thing in common- the excitement of recording every major milestone until the big day!

While saving ultrasound photos are a great way to document a pregnancy, a photoshoot provides a more intimate opportunity to capture and cherish every honest, gorgeous moment with mom in the spotlight. It’s up to you whether you want to keep it simple, go all out, or find a happy medium. Regardless of what approach you take, we’re here to send some inspirational vibes your way!

Sultry Silhouettes

Include Your Partner

Even though your partner may not be physically contributing to your pregnancy, that doesn’t mean they aren’t just as excited as you are! Involving your partner in your photoshoot is a great way to capture the love and excitement throughout your shared journey.

A pregnancy photoshoot is a great reason to get dressed up (or down!) and feel good about yourself. The added bonus of being able to share or relive the moment at your convenience makes it a mama-must!
