Need maternity pic ideas! Post yours!

So, my SIL is a budding photographer She's got a VERY nice camera, but no studio. So, since it's so stinkin' cold right now, looks like my maternity pics will be taken inside - either in my house or in hers. Either way, we're on a tight budget. I really don't have many maternity clothes at all, so I'm trying to figure out how we can make some beautiful maternity portraits on a low budget. Maybe we can get creative with sheets and stuff. Anyway, I want to see your maternity pictures! I want to incorporate dd into these, too, so any pics of your older children and your belly are welcome, too

I'd do nude shots, personally.


And then for family shots using a carefully placed sheet and then maybe your favorite maternity outfit.

Definitely gotta get one of DD kissing the belly in there, right??

Re: Need maternity pic ideas! Post yours!

I'd love to see some! I had maternity pics done last time when I was 36 weeks (none on my computer). We used white tulle instead of full nudes, wrapped it around the breast and then down below like a skirt leaving the belly exposed. I also did ones lying on my side where I pulled my tank up to leave belly exposed and used blocks to spell out his name or you could just do boy/girl/baby. My favorites were black and white rather than color.

Re: Need maternity pic ideas! Post yours!

We took several pics in our nursery. One of my fave pics is my belly with magnet letters spelling "surprise" accross my belly since we didn't find out what we were having. I also like the pics where DH and I formed a half of a heart with our hands. Holding a sono pic on your belly makes a good pic too

Google Maternity Photography Poses. You can get some great ideas from there.
