1. Pick Your Props
a. Share your progress.
They say consistency is the key! Try incorporating the Pearhead Pregnancy Chalkboard into your photo shoots to help you keep track, and then of course, to post with your peeps.
b. Shake it up with accessories.
Adding your own personal touch, whether it be seasonal, fun or even wacky, will bring a sense of humor to your shoots. Pregnancy is a journey with a lot of emotions… capture them!
c. Show off your bump.
Belly stickers are the easiest way to showcase your bump’s growth. The Pearhead ones feature 17 stickers, starting at week 8 and going through to week 40!
2. Choose Your Background
a. Try interesting architecture.
Use archways and beautiful buildings to help outline and ultimately define your bump shot. It can act as a natural way to frame you!
b. Be inspired by nature.
No filter can replace or replicate natural lighting. Let the outdoors be your literal playground. Find the colors, textures and beauty that Mother Earth has given you.
c. Or, incorporate your neighborhood.
Have a plain white wall? Is your porch pretty? How about your cool colored door? You know they’re there for your entire pregnancy, so use them to your advantage… week after week!
For an extra tip, choose a dress in a solid color that you know will work well in all different settings, like the Rib Knit Maternity Dress in Burgundy shown. Or do you, and shop all our maternity styles. Make sure you tag us in your bump shots with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity – Happy snapping!
