Pregnancy photographer Hampshire
If you’re planning a pregnancy photoshoot (check you out, you awesome Mama-to-be!) then you might be wondering what you’ll need to bring with you. Well wonder no more, I have created this handy maternity photoshoot checklist to help you out.
Show as much, or as little skin as you like
Bear with me on this one. Keeping it simple and showing that beautiful bump of yours is what it’s all about. Having the right underwear (that you’re comfortable in) will really help us create awesome pregnancy portraits for you. I have a number of shirts/jumpers/cardigans available for you to use during your photo shoot, all of which look amazing with just a pair of pants. This is a must-have item to add to your maternity photoshoot checklist.
Get your perfume on: A checklist must-have!
If you smell great you feel great. Okay, I may have just made that up but think about it – you want to feel amazing during your pregnancy photoshoot. Sure, you’ll do your hair & makeup and I’ll help style what you wear. You must think, what else will make you feel confident to step out in front of my camera? You’d be amazed at what a difference a quick spritz of your favorite perfume can make for your confidence. Source your new favorite scent and add it to your maternity photoshoot checklist.
Partners and children
There is nothing better than being able to share these moments with your favorite people. Encouraging your partner and Children to be involved in your photoshoot is a big yes from me. I’m not strongly suggesting it, I’m flat-out demanding that this happens. Yes, I might be coming on a bit strong, but these are moments that you won’t get back. These are memories that you want to share with the people that you love the most, so let’s make it happen. Bring them along to your photoshoot and leave the how/why/where to me.
The most important thing on your maternity photoshoot checklist: Enjoy yourself!
This is a biggie. If you’re feeling nervous about being in front of the camera, or are unsure about whether your toddler will play ball then laughter will help get you through. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself or others, it’s important to relax and let it happen. And it will happen that is. It will happen whether you’re anxious or stressed, happy or excited, so why not relax and allow yourself to enjoy this experience? It will help us capture the images that you want so let’s have a giggle while we’re doing it!
There you have it, my Pregnancy Photoshoot checklist. If you found it useful then please do share it with your pregnant pals, I’m sure they’ll thank you for it!
If you were on the fence about booking a pregnancy photoshoot then I hope this has helped address any concerns you had. If not, please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to answer any questions or talk through any worries you might have.
