What to Wear: Maternity Edition

Whether you want to celebrate every inch of your beautiful bump; or whether you’re feeling nervous about how to style your new shape, I am here to help!

Pssst – styling a family? More tips over here!

Classic Styling

The flowing maxi dress – it’s a classic for a reason!

Plenty of fabric to play with, shapes that flatter and hug your bump, and long skirts for your littles to hide behind. You can’t really go wrong! All these dresses are available in my client wardrobe for you!

Casual Styling

I’ve never been comfortable with my body – especially my stomach. But during pregnancy I LOVED wearing fitted dresses to show off my shape! A body con dress is a super modern, understated way to flatter your figure and show off that bump.

Often, I’m asked to ensure that the focus of the shoot is on your little family, rather than your belly. If you’re looking for something to flatter but not highlight your shape, then opt for light, flowing fabric that’ll simultaneously skim and hug; avoid bulky fabrics that’ll hide your body; and choose a shorter length to make it less formal


I encourage every mum in front of my lens to show some skin. I didn’t, and I regret it.

Whether you’re loving or loathing your pregnancy, there is no denying that what your body is doing is real life magic, and I promise you, these photos will become more precious and important as the years fly past.

It’s up to you how much you want to show, and how. Just a hint of skin, under a flowing dress?

Go boudoir

Embrace the salty life in a bikini.

Or take it all off and really embrace your figure!

There are so many beautiful ways to style your pregnant belly, and you can choose multiple styles within your session. Many of my clients will start with a casual look; change into a big statement dress; and then end in the water in a bikini. However you want to do it, make sure you take the time to capture this moment – because though it feels like you’ve been pregnant for 17,437 years – trust me, it’s gone in a blink!
