After talking yesterday about how maternity photo shoots can work while staying fully covered, here’s some handy tips to make sure you get the most from your session if you are planning on underwear / semi nude shots.

Relax – Even if you are daring to bare, it’s not a case of stepping into the studio and stripping off. I’d always recommend bringing at least one clothing option to you have time to relax into your session and get comfortable.

Plan Some Time – don’t schedule it on a hectic day where you’ll end up rushing either to or from. Your pregnancy photos should be a little oasis of ‘me-time’ so you can really cherish both getting them done and the finished pictures.

Avoid Clothing Marks – Before your session, try to minimise tight clothing so you don’t get waistband, seam, sock or underwear marks
