The question I offten hear from expecting mothers that are preparing for their maternity photo session is "What Do I Wear!?".
It really depends on what look you are going for, if you will be indoors or outdoors or maybe even both. Will your shoot be a gender reveal? Will the father of the baby be in the photos as well?
Once you've established the above questions, it's time to get down brass tacks.
Start with the picture below. Remember you want timeless photos. Leave the total matchy outfits in the 90's. It's all about coordinating not matching in 2014!
If he's in a plaid/pattern shirt, be sure you are in a solids. It's ok to have a POP of color, just make sure you aren't clashing with each other and no one is out doing the other. Stick to the same color family and don't be using neutral colors as your base. Your outfit choices should reflect you, the better you.
Don't be afraid to dress in tighter clothes to show off your beautiful pregnant belly. Avoid stripes if possible and low v-neck shirts. Pick a light color flowing shirt and add a pop of color with your top.
If you have additional questions or need help prepping for your maternity shoot, let me know. I make house calls too - I can help you pick out the perfect outfits for your next photo shoot.
Have a blessed day,
Are you looking for a photographer to help capture your families true colors? I pride myself and my skills on being able to capture your genuine smile while you play with your child as well as capture that perfect moment when your husband kisses you on your forehead.
Capturing those moments with precise precision is what separates the professionals from those who enjoy photography as their hobby.
As your professional photographer I will help make sure you and your family are relaxed and have a stress free on location portrait session.
Don't waste your time or your money with a photographer who's too worried about their camera setting and misses those picture perfect moments. A professional photographer will be comfortable with his or her equipment and will know the true art and craft that photography is.
Book your session today and save. Now until the end of January you can get your families portraits taken for just $75.00

I had the pleasure of photographing Lelia and her two beautiful children this week. All three of them were full of life, giggle and all smiles during their family photo shoot. It was such a true blessing to be able to capture their true colors.
Have you been searching for a family friendly photographer to help you capture you and your families true colors? Here's your chance to get amazing family portraits for a fraction of the cost, plus I come to you!
