One of the best ways to feel really good about ourselves is to wear something that makes us feel beautiful. A beautiful maternity dress can have the power to lift your mood and give you the confidence to rock your maternity session. I have been on the lookout for maternity dresses for pictures since I started my photography business, and I am here to share the best of the best with you!
A lot of the moms I work with feel a little stuck about what to wear for their maternity pictures, and I totally get it! That’s why when you book a session with me, you get my full support to plan outfits for the whole family.
The very first thing we do is to choose mom’s outfit. From there we will start choosing pieces for everybody else that compliments the color and style of mom’s clothes.
No matter what style of maternity dress you prefer or what size you wear, there’s a perfect dress out there for you.
Color selection is super important. Generally speaking, color has a deep impact in the way we see pictures and movies, which is why the movie industry focuses so much on color grading movies. I will be showing maternity dresses for pictures in colors that will look beautiful on camera.
Neutral Color Maternity Dresses for Pictures
Neutral colors are fantastic for photos. You get to play around with everybody else’s outfit and find colors and patterns that go well with your dress.
Neutral colors also suit a variety of skin tones, so that makes it super easy to find the right one for you.
Bold Color Maternity Dresses
Bold colors work beautifully in pictures.
We would style these colors together with more neutral colors for the rest of the family for a real wow factor.
Where to buy maternity dresses for pictures
All the options above are from Amazon. The dresses are good quality and most options get delivered pretty quickly if you are in a rush.
There are many other amazing shops to look for maternity dresses too. Here are some of my favorites:
How to coordinate my family’s outfit with mine?
One of the most fun parts of helping my clients prepare for their sessions is coordinating the wardrobe for the whole family.
I use a few different tools for this. One of them is a service called Style & Select. Through this service I am able to create mood boards for your whole family and they have direct links to the stores where the pieces come from.
Another way is to work with pieces you already have in your wardrobe. You can send me pictures of pieces you would like to utilize in the shoot and I will find other pieces (either in my client closet or I can send links to stores) to coordinate with what you already have.
