How to Make Your Maternity Photoshoot Memorable

November 7, 2021

As a new mom-to-be, you’re probably looking forward to meeting your little one and welcoming them into the world. The excitement of getting pregnant and learning you will soon become a parent for the first time or adding to your family can be an overwhelming experience. As it turns out, your maternity photoshoot can be a great way to get excited about the new arrival.

If you want to document this amazing time in your life, there are many different styles of maternity photography that offer unique and beautiful ways to capture one of the most important moments in your life. XS Sharon Photography can capture these pivotal points of your life like no other. Here’s a guide to help you make the most of your maternity photoshoot:

1. Shoot Outdoors:

The majority of maternity shoots are done outdoors, as this setting offers a beautiful background and the chance to capture the gorgeous glow that comes with pregnancy. Shooting outdoors can be a lot of fun. You get good light, fresh air, and the chance to spend time with the father-to-be. But it does have its disadvantages—you’re out in the open, there are no walls for backdrops, you might have to travel a long way from home, and you don’t have as many options as to when shooting indoors.

But don’t let those disadvantages put you off—outdoor photography is one of the most enjoyable styles out there if done right!

2. The Right Poses:

If you’re pregnant, you must realize that the right pose is essential in taking a memorable maternity photo. While we know that there’s no single ‘right’ pose for pregnancy photos, posing yourself and your baby can be tricky if you’ve never done it before.

Pregnancy photoshoots should be fun and exciting. Posing for pregnancy photos is also a great way to practice being in front of the camera so that you can have better selfies or boudoir photoshoots later on.

Some of the best poses for pregnancy are:

  1. Hands-on-the-belly pose
  2. Posing with the father-to-be
  3. Father-to-be’s hands on the belly pose

3. The Right Time:

The right time to get your pregnancy photoshoot done outdoors is the first thing that pops into anyone’s mind when considering a photoshoot. You might be wondering when you should schedule your photoshoot. The best times to take photos are in late spring or early fall. This is when the weather is most favourable for outdoor photography, and the summer heat has not yet become an issue.

4. The Right Location:

There are a lot of places to take great pictures and catch some fantastic moments. You need to determine the correct location. However, it’s not just about any outdoor area; it has to be a spectacular one. It should have a lot of natural lighting and some interesting background to add value to your pictures and make them memorable.

A maternity photoshoot can be a great way to capture the special time that comes with pregnancy. After all, this is one of the last times that you will get to spend just you and your significant other before your baby arrives. To ensure that your photos turn out beautifully, XS Sharon Photography offers a wide range of maternity photography packages, from boudoir photoshoots in Richmond to maternity photography in Surrey, to choose from, with a variety of poses and settings.
