What to wear to your in home Maternity session




Preparing for a home maternity photo session can be exciting and daunting at the same time, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect outfit. As a Sydney family photographer, I have had the privilege of capturing many beautiful maternity sessions, and I have put together some tips and suggestions to help you choose the right clothing for your session.


Choose an outfit that fits well and accentuates your baby bump


Firstly, it's important to remember that you want to feel comfortable and confident during your photo shoot. Choose an outfit that fits well and accentuates your baby bump. You don't need to buy a specific "maternity" outfit - you can wear something from your current wardrobe that makes you feel good. Flowy dresses, long skirts, and stretchy pants are all great options that will highlight your pregnancy curves.


Soft, muted colours and neutrals are great for maternity photos


Another thing to consider when choosing your outfit is the colour palette. Soft, muted colours and neutrals like white, beige, pale pink, or light blue look great in maternity photos. If you want to add a pop of colour, you can choose a brighter accent colour like yellow, green, or red. However, it's best to avoid bold, vibrant colours or patterns, as they can be distracting in photos and draw attention away from the most important part of the photo - you and your bump!


Textures and layers add depth and interest to your photos


Textures and layers can add depth and interest to your photos. For example, a soft, flowing dress paired with a chunky knit cardigan or a denim jacket can add a casual, comfortable feel to your photos. Accessories like scarves, hats, or jewelry can also add a personal touch to your outfit.


Consider incorporating your personal style and home décor into the photos


When it comes to footwear, comfort is key. Maternity sessions often involve standing or walking around, so choose shoes that are comfortable and easy to walk in. Avoid shoes with high heels or complicated straps that could cause discomfort or distract from your outfit. One of the benefits of a home maternity session is that you can incorporate your personal style and home décor into the photos. If you have a specific theme or style in mind, you can choose your outfit accordingly. For example, if you have a rustic or bohemian home décor style, you can choose an outfit that complements this style.


Coordinate your outfit with your partner's or family members' outfits


Finally, it's important to coordinate your outfit with your partner's or any other family members who will be in the photos. You don't need to match exactly, but choosing colours and styles that complement each other will create a cohesive and visually pleasing look.


Choose comfortable footwear for your maternity session


In summary, when preparing for a home maternity session, you want to choose an outfit that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Soft, muted colours, textures, and layers can add depth and interest to your photos. Remember to coordinate your outfit with your partner's or family members' outfits, and don't forget about comfortable footwear!


As a Sydney family photographer, I understand the importance of choosing the right clothing for your maternity session. By following these tips and suggestions, you can feel confident and comfortable during your photo shoot, and create beautiful memories that you will treasure for years to come.
