how to get the best from your maternity shoot
Congratulations on booking your maternity photography with Baby Shoots!
We’re looking forward to creating some beautiful maternity portraits for you, to keep forever. We have a few suggestions to help us get the best portraits for you.
Your shoot fee includes the use of any of our in-house maternity gown props, which are designed to create a range of styles from high-key soft and delicate to a more contemporary low key fine art style.
Because some of our maternity gowns can be partially transparent (lacy or sheer) we recommend bringing a selection of undergarments with you, in white, nude and black colours.
If you’d like us to take portraits of you in your own clothing, we recommend bringing a small selection of garments to choose from… keeping in mind we’ll be wanting to show your “baby bump” off where possible (boob tubes can be useful).
One simple “outfit” we recommend all our clients bring is a pair of ‘normal’ jeans with a white shirt. The shirt can be a man’s shirt, and the jeans don’t need to zip up… this can be a great way to show off your bump in a very casual portrait.
Please bring light clothing with you, avoiding strong patterns, stripes & logos. If you’d like portraits involving both partners, keep in mind colour coordination between those being photographed.
