18 Outfit Ideas For Your Maternity Photoshoot

Deciding what to wear for your studio maternity photoshoot doesn't have to feel overwhelming. I've created a simple guide to help you decide.

To make it easier, my studio offers a complimentary selection of beautiful crop tops, flowy gowns, tulle and sheer fabrics for draping, and beach robes, which you are welcome to use.

Crop Top

Wear a formfitting crop top to show a little skin and your bump. Choose a crop top with an interesting neckline or lace detail.

Crop Tops

Flowy Gown

Flowy tulle gowns are a great choice for studio maternity photoshoots for moms-to-be. They are elaborate in detail and will accentuate your smooth baby bump.

Tulle Outfit

Lightweight tulle fabric draped over your baby bump elegantly shows off your curves; it is a great choice to showcase them without feeling too exposed.

Tulle Outfit

Draped Fabric

Fabric draped around your neck or shoulders is an original outfit idea. Choose fabric with detail or sheen in a neutral colour for a more natural look.

A beach robe is an excellent way of showing off your beautiful baby bump. Look for one with detail to complement the softness of your belly.

Au Naturel

Whether captured as a silhouette or with rim lighting, go nude and make an artistic statement of the extraordinary life within you.

Formfitting Dress

The great thing about a formfitting dress is it will hug your curves in all the right places and highlight your bump.

Body Paint & Tattoos

Painting your baby bump with body paint is a unique way of celebrating your beautiful preggy bump. Henna tattoos express luck and happiness and are often featured at ceremonial events like births, making them the perfect Indian maternity portrait.
