Beautiful and sensitive projects

Documenting a woman’s b-o-d-y during pregnancy can be challenging. However, with a little sensitivity & planning your shoots carefully, your photography can give expectant mothers not only pregnancy photos they will cherish forever but an experience they’ll never forget!

10 Creative And Beautiful Maternity Photo Session Ideas


1. Take A Milk Bath

We love the artistic nature of this shot.  It’s both colorful, yet calming and pure.


2. Wear A Flowing Dress With A Long Trail

A flowing dress with a long trail swept up in the air creates a beautiful and powerful image. Almost like the mum has superpowers, which of course we know all mums do!


3. Have Your Belly Painted

For something really unique, how about a belly art pregnancy shoot like Corrina McLean?


4. Embrace A Country Backdrop

There is something magical and fairytale-like about wide-open fields and countryside as a backdrop for maternity photos.


5. Go For Reflections And High Contrast

This may look like a simple reflection shot but upon closer inspection, you will notice that it is two shots joined together.


6. Wear A Floral Head Dress Or Crown

Floral headdresses and crowns are making a huge splash both in fashion and wedding photography. They look equally beautiful when worn in photos. They can add a vintage, whimsical or bohemian vibe to your photos.


7. Keep It Fun And Humorous

Not all maternity photos need to be serene and romantic. Here Sam Herbohn has chosen to capture her pregnancy in a fun and humorous way. We love the bubble gum and the sign that reads ‘about to pop’.


8. Try A Silhouette Shot

Silhouette photos are simple and always stunning. In fact, these are pretty easy to do yourself. Grab your friend, have him/her face the sun during sunset while you (pregnant mum) stand in front of them.

Get them to focus the camera on the background and snap away. The results will amaze you!


9. Include Your Children

Our children are the most important things in our lives so it makes sense to want to include older siblings in our photos.


10. Head To The Water

There is nothing more calming than water, so if you are looking for beautiful relaxed maternity photos head to a lake or seaside to capture the serenity.


The next step after a maternity photo session is going to be family portraits. Always special and beautiful!
