Finally, you’re starting to see your bump! And now that you’re predominantly showing, it’s easy to get carried away with crazy ideas for your maternity photos. What is the most creative way to show off your bun in the oven? Or, better yet… what hasn’t been done?

The truth is, almost every maternity photo idea out there has already been done; so, what matters is how you let your personality shine through! Curious to know my favourite maternity photoshoot ideas?

Well, here are 5 adorable ways to show off your growing offspring:

The Classic Beauty Shot

Pregnancy is often thought of as a joyful and beautiful time in your life, but it can also be awkward and uncomfortable for some mom-to-be. So, if you would like to remember this time as a more elegant era, why not go for the classic beauty shot!

Outdoor photos at sunrise or sunset create a stunning, luminous appearance that will accentuate your natural “glow”.

Soft light and minimal fashion make for a timeless and graceful maternity photograph.

Going bare with your belly captures the deep connection between mom and baby in your most natural state.

Creative and Playful Text

Cheeky words and phrases are great ideas for the family who loves storytelling. Many couples love the idea of playing with handwritten fonts, chalkboards, and letter props because you can get so creative with them. Don’t be afraid to try different sayings or expressions that will perfectly capture how you’re feeling.

Chalkboards are a great way to incorporate whatever message you want to “deliver”. It’s easy to change up the wording and with the ever-growing trend of chalkboard art, the design of your fonts and decorative can be quite beautiful!

Writing on your belly can also be a fun way to show off your wordy wisdom! This cute loading sign is simple, but bold all at the same time.

Try a Time Lapse

Time lapses are a classic idea, but always a good one! Many mothers find it fun to track their progress over the nine months of their pregnancy and then put it all together at the very end. There are many ways you can tackle this photoshoot, including turning it into a video!

Simple Silhouettes

Looking to really have your bump stand out? Centre all the focus on your growing babe with a silhouette shot! Just like the classic beauty photograph, these kind of maternity photos will turn out timeless. There is something very heartwarming when you look at the silhouette of your baby growing inside you.

Here are a few of my favourite pregnancy silhouette photos:

Pregnancy Props

For the couples that have a silly side, maternity photos with props are often a top choice! Look for the kinds of things that make you and your significant other happy and consider integrating them into the photoshoot.

I found this idea of a mom and her collection of pregnancy cravings to be rather endearing; and since your cravings are different for every pregnant woman, the photo will be unique to you!

Puns are always cute, especially when babies are involved. This humorous shot of a couple pulling a legitimate bun out of the oven makes for an adorable laugh!

And last, but not least- even though it’s often considered a “cheesy” photo… the baby shoe photograph is always a keeper.

In the end, no matter what you choose to do when capturing your time of maternity, remember that it’s worth celebrating with a smile on your face.
