Having a baby is a life-changing event that should be preserved in maternity photos. Whether it’s the first or fourth, maternity photos will be a keepsake you won’t regret.

Being pregnant isn’t easy, and it brings changes to your body and mood that you may not want to have preserved in maternity photos. But once the baby has arrived and things settle down (as much as they will), you’ll be glad you have the photos to memorialize this blessed event.

Many times, the most uncomfortable things in life bring us the most joy afterward. Maternity photos are one way of remembering those uncomfortable times in the forthcoming times of joy.

Maternity photos are not just about a bump. They are reminders of a miraculous thing. Two people join together to make another person. There is little more miraculous than that.

Maternity photos are celebrations, also. You’re about to meet a brand new person that no one has met before. You’re also celebrating a relationship between you and your partner. In addition, you’re celebrating just how strong this body you have really is.

You’re celebrating what only a woman can do: Grow and nurture a completely helpless new person for 40 weeks and then bring him/her into the world.

Here are some tips for making those maternity photos the best you possibly can.

Timing is most important. Probably the end of your second trimester will be the best time for maternity photos. The baby bump is obvious and you still have the energy to get all dressed up and get out.

Choosing the right kind of outfit for your maternity photos is also very important. Loose, flowy dresses make for good photos. You’ll also probably want to bring along something that is tighter and shows off the baby bump for other photos.

You’ll want to pamper yourself for your maternity photos, too. Get your hair done and styled professionally, along with your makeup. You deserve it at this point, after all.

Choose your location for your maternity photos carefully. A location that is naturally beautiful will make your maternity photos really stand out. A place that has special meaning for you will make the photos more dear to you, as well.
