When it comes to maternity photoshoots, pretty much anything goes as far as getting photos you'll enjoy looking back on. It is, after all, an incredibly special time in your life and one that only comes a handful of times, if that. However, there are three tried and true ways to get maternity photos you'll absolutely adore and cherish for the rest of your life. In this blog post, I'll share three maternity photoshoot themes that are guaranteed to have you ordering that custom photo album so you can have your photos at your fingertips forever.

Glamorous Outdoor Maternity Photoshoot

One of the more popular photoshoot themes I see for maternity sessions is the glamorous outdoor photoshoot. This typically involves a picturesque Colorado Springs backdrop like the one above (located at Garden of the Gods) while the mother-to-be wears a gorgeous, flowing gown. This combination of the beauty of nature combined with the billowing fabric of a gorgeous gown is the perfect way to highlight your growing bump. I also love that being present in nature for your photoshoot emphasizes the beautiful nature of pregnancy and the life growing within you. It's a wonderful way to honor the experience of pregnancy and the little person you've created.

Glamorous Studio Maternity Photoshoot

Studio maternity sessions are a wonderful option for soon-to-be mothers who like a fine art look to their photos. Glamorous studio sessions create clean lines, beautiful black and white images, and put the emphasis of the photos solely on the expecting parents and the growing bump. If you have a minimalist or glam style to your home, these images will make for gorgeous artwork you can display around you house and enjoy for years to come. If you come to my studio in Colorado Springs, you're welcome to use any of the many gowns in my client wardrobe, and you can even incorporate several different outfits in your session in order to have a variety of images to choose from.

Casual Studio Maternity Photoshoot

If full glam doesn't feel like it matches your lifestyle, you'll be happy to know that another popular and gorgeous option for your maternity photoshoot is a more casual studio maternity session. Many soon-to-be mamas opt for a casual dress or jeans as their outfit for these sessions, however there's another adorable option as well. As shown above, it's also a cute option to choose a session featuring the mama in her bra and underwear for a very simple look that puts the bump on full display. These casual sessions are a beautiful and intimate way to capture your relationship with your partner as you prepare to welcome this new little life into your family. They would be lovely printed and hung as art around your home or presented in a custom photo album to share with family and friends.
