How To Prepare For Your Maternity Session

Know When To Book

You will want to book your shoot early and aim for the third trimester to get the best photos. This will ensure you get scheduled and your belly is at its fullest before the baby drops for the perfect photo opportunity.

Discuss Your Wardrobe With Your Photographer

Picking out the perfect wardrobe can be intimidating as many women are unsure of what to wear. Leave it to us here at Genny Lynn Photography to help pick out your wardrobe to fit the type of photos you will be taking.

Get Pampered

Getting a manicure the day before your session is always a good idea, as many photos will have close-ups of your hands. You will also want to schedule a hair appointment and have your makeup done the day of to get the best look. 

Bring Sentimental Items

Your maternity shoot is the perfect opportunity to bring something special with you to include in your photographs. Whether it be a family heirloom, an ultrasound photo, or a baby blanket, sentimental items make great additions to your photos.

Have Fun

Lastly, and most importantly, don’t forget to have fun. The natural look of having fun and being worry-free adds to the beauty of maternity photos.
