Here at the studio I photograph a lot of pregnancy sessions, one of the most popular requests is for timeless classic black & white maternity photography. I agree that whilst it is lovely to have colour pop for children and families, black & white maternity photography is one of my favourite styles to photograph. There is a softness to the image which is just adorable. In this post today I have put together some examples of what could be worn to these session, some mummies to be are happy to be photographed in the ‘Demi Moore’ style but if you’re not comfortable with that then that is no problem at all.
These points are especially important if you have booked a Signature Maternity & Newborn Plan session with us and would like the baby photographs to be naked and curled up and sleepy as both sessions (maternity and baby) look fabulous together in a multi image wall portrait to tell the story of your family.
Flowing dresses, oversized shirts, jeans, vest tops, bangles and chunky necklaces are great.
There is nothing wrong with white tops and jeans if you are looking for black & white maternity photography images only, for this though I would advise you wear outfits with texture in them as this does add interest to the image.

KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER:
NAILS- Ladies, please remember to paint your finger and toe nails (especially if choosing go go barefoot).
JEWELLERY – Remember that co-coordinating jewellery, scarves and hair accessories can look fantastic and can add a lot of style to your images.
MAKEUP – Makeup just slightly stronger that you would wear for normal daytime. Don’t wear makeup with sparkles (including high gloss lipstick) the sparkles catch the light of the flash and you will have silver sparkles all over! Bring your make up bag for touch ups.
