Clients more often than not, struggle as they try to dress up for a maternity photo shoot. As a pro photographer, they may often come to you for advice and you should help them out with this. If you leave it up to them, they will show up for maternity photography clad in color-coded outfits or some weird ensemble. The parents-to-be looking quirky dressed in blue or yellow from head to toe is not something you want. Enlighten them about their clothing choices and show them what would be appropriate.
Think carefully and plan out such an ensemble that flatters the mom-to-be visually as well as one that makes for an appealing image of the belly. Their best bet would be outfits that have great color and texture like a snugly knit sweater, some colorful ruffles. They can accessorize the clothes with some beautiful jewelry that is minimal and makeup that is lightly applied. There have been times when I have gone to the client’s homes and helped them pick out the clothes that the couple could wear for the photo shoot. It is all a part and parcel of being a good professional in the field of photography.
