What to Wear Guide: Maternity
Like I said in my last "What to Wear" blog post (here), you want to show off that cute baby bump of yours, show off your personality, and be comfortable. I am not one for high-heels, pregnant or not, but if you can rock them...DO IT!
Here are some cute fashion ideas for the coming Fall season:
Remember to accessorize and moisturize for your maternity session! Drink lots of water beforehand, and loosen any belt-lines if you want bare-belly pictures.
Which style best suites YOU? I'd like to hear feedback from all the mamas out there!! I tried to incorporate every style :0)
These are all the sessions I am currently working on...from charity events, to seniors, to babies, to weddings! You name it, I'm probably working on it. Here are some sneak peeks:

What to Wear to your Session Guide
Today, we are focusing on what you should be wearing for your family, engagement or maternity pictures.
Now, I could tell you forever and a day, what NOT to wear....but I think it's better left unsaid...and just needs to be shown. I will make sure you will not end up here...promise!!!
Here are some great colorful choices for your next family session..bright bold colors that are muted with grey:
Here is another great color combo for Fall, more classic subtle tones. Accessories really make an outfit POP! and can be used as a great prop to get some smiles going on...
Personally, I am a "jeans and a T-shirt" kinda gal, so I threw in a little comfort for all those pregnant ladies out there!
Maternity pictures are there to capture both your personality, as well as your bump...so show it off! Choose something that is tighter around the belly, and flowing every where else, for comfort.
(From left to right) Casual, comfortable, and classic.
