Maternity Pictures Tips

Many of you may know that I have started a little side hustle. Well one of many side hustles. What can I say, mama likes to stay busy! One of them includes starting my own photography business, Ashley Sanderson Photography.

I love being able to capture life as it happens for my clients and this client is an extra special one.
That sweet little baby in there in my NEPHEW! Yep. I'm going to be aunt and I am so incredibly excited.

Courtney is the most beautiful pregnant gal and I was so excited to do her maternity pictures. All of her dresses are from Pinkblush Maternity. I won't shop anywhere else for anything regarding maternity clothing. Their styles are on point, so comfortable, and affordable! For my local gals, all of these photoshoot dresses are available to you for a maternity session. No need to go shopping!

I know that sometimes picking out a dress for this type of session can be overwhelming! You're dressing a body that you just aren't sure about and places are bigger than they were before and by the time you start looking for a dress you wish you never had and just want to cancel the whole session. Take a breath, keep reading, and I promise, you will have some direction by the end of this blog post.

I put together a little go to list to follow when you are shopping for that perfect maternity photoshoot dress.

1. Keep It Simple
Make sure that your dress isn't taking away from the fact that you are celebrating this sweet life inside of you! Solid colors (neutral tones) are great or a simple pattern. Make sure your outfit isn't too contrast-y. Did I just make up a word? Let me explain. Don't get a dress with a hot pink skirt and white top. Way too much going on there! You also don't need a ton of accessories, but a sweet floral crown always seals the deal for me.

2. Fitted Outfits
Make sure that the dress you wear is formfitting so you can see that bump. That's what the pictures are all about right?

3. LOVE IT
Make sure that whatever you pick, that you love it, feel comfortable it, and ultimately ROCK it because it'll show in the pictures.

I have linked the dresses in the photos below in case you are looking for inspiration. These in my opinion are perfect for a maternity session.












Courtney rocked these photos and you can tell how comfortable and natural she felt in these dresses. That mustard dress is my absolutely favorite! It comes in probably 10 different colors on the Pinkblush site.

Can't wait to meet this little guy in a few short weeks!
