Minimalistic make up and a flowy gown will make you look fabulous. A pose your maternity photo album has to have.
2: Lying down
Lie down on your back and show your flattering bump. The beauty of this pose is that it looks natural and not made up. You can lie down on grass or on your bed but don't forget to put silk linen bedsheets on the bed. Backgrounds can easily spoil the photo. So with poses do concentrate on the background too. You can ask the photographer to click a picture from side or from above, directly look into the camera and smile for the perfect shot. Don't tilt your head at a completely weird angle, just look sideways or above.
3: Close up
Pregnancy is all about that baby bump and how can you just not have a picture of your belly. Either sideways or from front, your choice any angle will be perfect. You can stand or even sit crossed legs for this mesmerizing pose. A picture where the focus is just on the bump is necessary. You can add fun by adding props to it like tie your belly with a ribbon or put a toy car on the top of your bump. Get a picture clicked while touching the bump, it portrays how careful and protracted you already are for the baby.
Hide behind a tree, door or wall and just show your face or belly for the cutest picture in your album. If you show your face then directly look into the camera and tell the photographer to stand a few meters away so you can get the background also. Give intense expressions and keep the make up neutral.
Standing is almost always more flattering for pregnant women, but you still want a relaxed picture. Bend a knee or pop a hip to not look weird. Just be extra aware of your angles. Sitting pose can even add variations to your shoot as all your poses will be while standing. Tell the photographer to take the picture from top angle so you can either look down at the baby bump or above directly into the camera. You can experiment with expressions in this pose.
6: Keep it Natural
When you looks down at your belly, make sure your head isn’t completely tilted at a weird angle…it can look unnatural and create a double chin. Don’t forget eye contact and with a smile…everyone loves a classic shot like that. Vary expressions from laughter to more intense. Nothing can beat a going to be mother's natural beauty. Be you as simple as that and you'll get a magical photograph.
