Tips for planning outdoor maternity photoshoots

Nov 25


Some helpful tips can be found here:

1. Where should I go to get an outdoor shoot with my maternity?

Imagine where you'd like to hold your photoshoot. The location of your session will depend on the outfit you decide to wear for your photo shoot. It is recommended to dress that is more modest if expected.

Photography sessions with family outside in Las Vegas is a great option because you can choose and decide where to go. You can visit tried-and-true places or explore something completely new. In the past, my mom wanted to see forest-themed photos so I went out to look for more places.


When it comes to maternity sessions locations there are certain aspects I'm looking for. The location can offer me a variety of backgrounds. For instance, the beach and grassy areas or rocks. I don't want to be restricted to a single backdrop, such as beaches.

2. It is very light.

If you're shooting with only available light, ensure your subject is adequately illuminated. If you're shooting in the middle of the day, make sure that your subject is situated in a way in which her body is well lit. Normally, I would state that the sun is behind your subject. The goal is shadows.

If it's cloudy, this is a fantastic and easy option. There will be a pleasant gentle light wherever you travel. It is possible to use off-camera flash lighting to add more oomph.

Explore your lighting. Create various portraits. To enhance the drama of your pregnant images, take some portraits with backlights.


3. There are a variety of poses to consider for pregnant portraits.

It's not easy to attain an array of postures while filming outside. Mum tends to be sitting, and she'd remain in the same belly-holding position. I'd like to add some variety to the mix by changing the outfits or the settings. The shore is the first stop and then the grassy area, after which to the rocks, and so on.


Include your dad on the photo. I usually ask them to step in since it's not possible to exclude dad from being included in photographs. This helps subjects show more personality and increases the relationship between them.

The number of close-up shots or shift the perspective totally. Moving around your subject can alter the background or style.


4. Preparing for a maternity photoshoot.

I recommend wearing clothes that emphasize your waistline. Don't wear clothes that are too loose since your stomach will show through. It is possible to wear my pregnancy outfits but jeans and a nice shirt also work.

The location you're shooting at and the fashion your mom prefers will decide what you wear for your photo. Certain families prefer wearing simple and unadorned clothing and get simple pregnancy pictures. Some will choose to wear more elaborate clothes, making the event a special occasion. Couples may prefer taking photographs in the park.


5. What should you change in your outfits for a photoshoot while pregnant.

After a few outdoor photoshoots, I realized I needed an answer for changing outfits during photo shoots. I'd had enough getting back to my car to change into new clothes. This is especially true when Mum requires three or four changes. It is a waste of time and work. It also limits how far you can travel.

Therefore, the collapsible stand tent was bought. It was a wonderful investment and I am extremely satisfied with it.
