The maternity session is a very important event in a woman’s life. We all want to look our best, it’s not uncommon to have a fine art session so we want to feel special and make sure we look good in the photos. Magdalena from A&M Mazur Photography makes sure you feel special on the day of your session. She wants you to be well-dressed but not overdressed. You need to feel special but be yourself.
Some women dream of a natural session, they don’t want long tulle dresses but jeans and a top, other women who wear jeans and a t-shirt every day want to wear a long dress to feel special. Each of us is different, and each of us has different expectations. A&M Mazur allows you to choose. A few weeks before the session they ask you to send a photo of yourself so that they can choose the type and colour of the dress to suit your beauty. It is also important to ask what kind of photos women like, and what kind of sessions they like. If the photographer follows in their footsteps then you are in good hands.
Maxi dresses are ideal for pregnancy shoots as they are very comfortable and add an elegant touch. They are great for showing off your beautiful tummy, but can also cover up any ‘problem areas. We recommend dresses with open shoulders, deep necklines, or strapless. The dress mustn’t have too many accessories, textures, and colours so that the dress does not obscure the beauty of the woman. For photographs, the most important thing is the woman, not a fancy dress. in this case, less is more.
Many women opt for a simple look. They want to look casual. Jeans, a white t-shirt, a tight black dress or even a leather jacket. By choosing such an outfit, they want to show themselves as they are every day. They don’t want to see themselves in dresses they would never wear because it’s not their style. See examples of maternity casual sessions and how an oversized shirt and leggings can be sexy.
If you’re not sure you’ll feel comfortable in a dress but also don’t want a casual look, try covering yourself in fabric. It’s a great idea to use a variety of fabrics for your Maternity shoot. See how simple green chiffon can be better than many dresses. Does every material look good? Answer no. Only light, airy fabrics such as chiffon, satin, and tuille are suitable for the shoot. I do not recommend using patterned fabrics.
Many women feel sexier during pregnancy than before pregnancy. They like to show their naked belly, and wear tight clothes. If you’re one of them then you don’t need to look for a lot of ideas, maybe it’s worth stripping down instead of getting dressed. A lingerie shoot is a great idea. It could be a sports kit or lacy women’s lingerie. Many women opt for a bodysuit, plain black works great.
Many women opt for a naked session. They are proud of their bodies, no matter how many kilos they have put on. A panty or a material covering the intimate area is enough. Add jewellery, a large necklace, earrings, or maybe a crown. These are intimate images, so it is important to clarify with the photographer whether you agree to the publication of these images on social media.
And what do you choose? What is your idea? If you still haven’t got one check out all the options A&M Mazur Photography offer and you’re sure to find something to suit you.
