Maternity photoshoots can be whatever you want them to be.
Some mamas want to lean into the boudoir side more & still get a booty picture while we’re at the studio. Others want to stay more on the soft/feminine/cozy side of their session.
Picking outfits for your maternity boudoir isn’t really that different from a regular boudoir session. Here are some popular options:
- A dress
The photos I have from the most recent boudoir sessions in dresses are all pretty sheer. Once again, everything is up to you & your comfort level. If you want to have more coverage, a dress like this is really beautiful to photograph! If you click that link, that’s a dress I got for my own maternity session with my last baby.Outdoor sessions are available on request for an additional fee.
- Bra/Panty Set
Lingerie works great for maternity boudoir too! You can do strappy, lacy, any kind of bra/panty set your heart desires! Note: you’ll want to keep to lower waisted underwear so it doesn’t roll down your baby bump throughout the session.
- Add a cardigan, robe, or a crop top
Are you looking for more comfy vibes? Adding a cardigan, crop top, robe, button down, etc. just gives a little extra snuggle to your maternity photos! I highly recommend bringing a little something to pair with a bra/panty set.
Bodysuits that work with the bump are a little more difficult to find. You obviously want something stretchy. My favorite spot to search for these is on Etsy!
You can see some of my top picks HERE, HERE & HERE! There are really so many good ones out there, plus Etsy also has some beautiful dress options!
- White Sheets and/or nude
Maternity is perfect for some artistic nude images and/or having a “just the sheets” look! As always, I’m living in your comfort zone. If it’s something you want to try, definitely let me know!
- The Bonus Bougie Robe
During your consultation we’re going to go over how to qualify for Bonuses & one of the option is this big fluffy robe! Well, there are actually 4 color options!
It’s so luxurious and is an absolutely stunning option for maternity!
I hope this post got your wheels turning & you’re starting to envision what your dream boudoir session would look like! I do recommend having your session around 30 weeks & scheduling sooner than later to make sure you are able to time it just right.
