Maternity Photo Shoot Inspiration


I have my maternity shoot with Miranda in just a couple of weeks and the dresses I thought would carry me through are fitting me a wee bit snug.  I don’t want to spend too much since I only have 10 weeks left, but I want to love it since it will be emblazoned in photos for years to come. I also plan to wear it to my baby shower so it will get a bit more use.  Perhaps I need to make Art take me on a date as well.  Here are a few of the choices I was thinking of.  Do any strike your fancy? this one is probably my least favorite because of the sleeves, but I do love the beading detail and the color. this is a favorite of Art’s and I do love a good maxi, especially a brightly colored one1 this is not my usual style, but still, I do like it. another maxi choice, I love the side slit. this one is the most out there I know, but there’s just something fun about it.  Obviously the least versatile and least practical, but there’s just something about wearing sequins during the day time that says you really don’t give a damn 😉

What do you guys think?  Can you see me wearing any of these, or should I keep searching?

    I think I like the first and last the most. Mainly because they seem feminine, but fun, and definitely fancy. I think I need a 4th f. The sparkles would be great for your shower too! especially if anyone is photographing you sitting (gifts, chatting) it’ll add some nice detail from the waist up. The strapless maxi is cute too, but with photos might make you look a bit naked on top 😉 (unless you wear a jacket or something over. but then that might dress it down).

    I like the floral maxi and the sequin one. i mean you can’t really go wrong with sequins right?

    Hey lady!
    I really do love all of these options… I would eliminate the first one, because I agree about the sleeves. I think they take the focus off the belly. I love both maxis, but I would definitely go with the solid red… I think the color will look amazing on you, and it’s a little more classic yet stylish… Which is great for pictures you want to keep forever. I love both white options. So pretty, girly and fun… But the solid red maxi gets my vote!!

  • Theresa York says:

    I agree with Art. LOVE the bright maxi. Beautiful with your hair and skin!!!

  • Megan says:

    I vote for the first one. I think its classic, a beautiful color and feminine.

  • Mary says:

    Definitely the colorful maxi…gorgeous! You could probably wear it after baby comes too. I think that dress will look good in whatever location you do your maternity shoot…in a field, at a park, or even an urban setting. Add a pretty necklace and some sandals and you’re set. The sequins baby doll is pretty but not as versatile.

  • I definitely love the first two. You don’t like the sleeves in the first one, so don’t get it. Get the one you’ll feel confident and beautiful in. Not one that you’re hoping the sleeves don’t look weird, ect. Haha
    But the color is gorgeous and it looks like it would flow nicely.

    The second one looks like it would flatter the most in any light. And the colors bring a fun and vibrant vibe to your shoot.

    I love the 2nd one. I also hate you a little for introducing me to Asos at 32 weeks pregnant. 🙂

  • Erica says:

    I really liked the printed maxi at first but I gotta go with the sequins! It’s too fun to pass up. Your skin tone looks beautiful with gold!! Whichever you decide, I know you will look STUNNING! can’t wait to see the pics! Rock it, mama!

  • Miranda says:

    5, 2, 4 in that order – all of them would look great on your though.

  • Meagan says:

    I LOVE the maxi and it would highlight your belly so nicely without giving you the look of extra weight pregnant women hate. I love love love it!

  • The bright colored maxi or the sequin shift! Both so different. It depends on your shoot location but the colored maxi would look incredible outside!

  • ashley says:

    The printed maxi is SO cute. I want one. Wear that!

  • Andrea says:

    You guys are all the best! Thank you so much 🙂 I think I’ll order the printed maxi and the sequin number just so I have two options, and return one (gotta love ASOS free return shipping!)

  • Mandie says:

    I think the second is my favorite- totally stunning. You could probably take it in after baby is born, too, to maximize wearing potential!
