How to prepare for Maternity Photoshoot

Updated: Jan 3

First of all, don’t be nervous! We got this for You, all You’ll need to do is just show up and we will do the rest!

However, to get the best result, there is some steps you should take before coming to Your session to get those absolutely Stunning Portraits.

1st. What to bring with You?

The main thing is Nude underwear, if possible seamless panty and strapless bra. Also we usually ask to bring black and white sets as well. This will allow us to create beautiful silhouettes without any marks on Your skin also we’ll be able to incorporate silks in your portraits without bright color underwear sneaking out from underneath the silk.

Ana King Photography offers all the dresses, bodysuits, jackets, wrapping fabrics and silks that you can see in our portfolio. But we also suggest you bring your favorite dress. Yes, we know it doesn't fit anymore and that's totally fine! Remember, we shooting in the studio so we can always clip it in the back or make it fit some other way. But having something that you really like and feel comfortable in is always a good idea. We can always chat prior to your session and discuss the wardrobe options for Your Best Maternity Portraits.

2nd. What to do with your Hair&Make Up?

All of our packages include Make Up, and some of packages also include Hair styling.

If You choose one of the packages that include Hair&Make Up then do NOTHING! Almost…

Please arrive with clean blow dried hair and don’t put any make up, except for moisturizer. If You aware that you are allergic to some products then please bring some of the products that You using on everyday basis with You so our professional make up artist will apply them for you.

For maternity photography we usually go with more natural look in makeup.

3rd. What manicure should i choose?

We suggest to do your nails in natural color palette. Nudes, beige, cream, pink, whites will all look great in photos. We also suggest that you stay away from really dark or neon colors that will be catching too much attention.

4th. Our business is located in Miami area. So we know with 248 sunny days in a year (as per Google) we will always look tanner than the rest of the states. However, we suggest to stay away from artificial tanning products. Or if you really would like to use them, please do it at least a week ahead of your Maternity session.

5th. Inspiration

It is also a good idea to make a mood board prior to your maternity session.

You can use apps like Pinterest to gather up the pregnancy photoshoot ideas that you like. Also you can always refer to for inspiration, our galleries are updated weekly so there is many ideas for to find something that feels like You.

We also suggest to send us Your Maternity session mood boards ahead of your session, in case we need to create something special, or make a different set up specially for You. We can always discuss any creative ideas on our complimentary phone consultation before the session with Ana King Photography.
