7 wardrobe ideas for your maternity photoshoot

Choosing what to wear for a maternity photoshoot is a lot of fun!  The most important thing to consider is that you should love everything you bring and feel confident wearing each item.  If it doesn’t meet those critieria, it stays at home.  Remember – you can always borrow things from friends or buy a couple of items inexpensively online.  Do this in advance of your shoot so you have time to try things on for size and fit.  The following are just ideas to use as a starting point – so go with what excites you and leave the rest!

Matching set

Classic and elegant, this always looks good. 


Tailored, leather, biker style, denim, oversized – the options are endless!  You can pair this with your favourite undies or with jeans for a fun, confident vibe.

Fitted Dress

Jersey dresses look sleek and stunning for maternity shoots and really show off all those magnificent curves!  Just make sure that it fits snugly – the fabric should stretch slightly around your body.

White Shirt

Go for crisp cotton for a relaxed morning vibe – or a sheer fabric with drape for those dreamy backlit portraits.

Cropped Top

If you want to show more skin, a cropped top will bring the attention to your bump.

Cardigan / Kimono / Robe

If you want to be a little more covered up, a cardigan, robe or kimono is a great option. 


Striking jewellery that is meaningful to you can look fabulous!
