While it’s exciting to go through the magical maternity journey, it’s also memorable to document every process either through words or pictures and here are tips on what to do to capture the beauty and joy of your pregnancy journey through stunning photographs.

1. Timing: Schedule the photoshoot during your second trimester when you’re feeling most comfortable and have a visible baby bump. It’s that time that there’s energy and this fine glow and aura from the baby to the mother.

2. Choose the right location: Go for a location that you are comfortable with, a place where you feel safe and an environment free of hazards,whether indoor or outdoor just make sure it’s suitable for you and your baby.

3. Wardrobe selection: Wear outfits that bring out your body, baby bump and make you feel beautiful and confident. You can wear a buttoned down shirt but open the buttons that cover the stomach, don’t accessorize with anything that will draw attention away from the bump, you can opt for flowy dresses and fitted tops. While it’s cool to go barefoot, you can wear comfortable shoes also.

4. Involve a Family member: It’s always cool to involve a family member like the siblings(if there is) of the baby, you can include your partner also in some of the shots to capture the love and anticipation of parenthood together.
