Sometimes all it takes are 30 minutes to get beautiful pictures of special memories – such as a baby belly :) Together with Leona and Dominik, who are currently expecting their first child, we created natural, candid and fun images in the overwhelmingly beautiful cherry blossom streets of Marburg. I can smell spring when I look at this shoot! :)

Are you thinking about capturing this special time of your life? Don’t hesitate to get in touch!

 

Here are some tips concerning maternity shoots for you:

1. When is the best time for a shoot like this?

The best time to have a maternity shoot is around the last 6-4 weeks before the estimated date of delivery – this way the belly shows really nicely and you’re still comfortable.

2. What should I/we wear?

First of all: Please don’t wear anything you’re not feeling like yourself in. But – choose an outfit that highlights your curves / your belly, for example flowy dresses/skirts. Make sure you and your partner match in colour and pattern (nothing too crazy and mismatching).

3. How should I pose?

Keep it natural! There are many possibilities, for example interacting with your partner, massaging the belly, walking, cuddling – as long as you feel good and don’t have to think too hard about how you might look, it’s the right thing.
