6 Great Ideas for Creating Stunning Maternity Photos
Congratulations, you’re expecting!
Surely you’ll want to tell the world and everyone you love. Maternity photos are the best way to express your new joy in a creative and beautiful way.
There are so many picture ideas to consider for this major milestone.
Here are 6 cute ideas for stunning maternity photos.
1. Waterfront View
If you want your photos to have a calming effect, a waterfront view is the way to go.
Bodies of water such as lakes, beaches, and rivers provide a beautiful aesthetic. Nothing can compare with the image of rushing water or breaking waves. People will feel a sense of ease when they catch a glimpse of your pictures.
Try posing on a dock or sandy seashore. There’s no limit to how you can incorporate this view into your shoot.
Nature, in general, is a great go-to subject for maternity photos. Maternity photos that are set in the woods or a forest are always cute.
2. The Silhouette
One of the most elegant maternity ideas involves the silhouette. Simple and classy, the black and white contrast will show off your body.
You can achieve a silhouette in a studio or out in nature. An open field in the evening is a perfect place to snap this kind of photo. A glowing, vibrant sunset or sunrise is the ideal setting for achieving a stunning effect.
3. Painted Belly
Most mothers want to show off their beautiful pregnant bellies in some way or another. Painting your belly is the colorful and fun way to do this.
You have a lot of wiggle room in terms of what you can have painted. Do you want a glove or starry night sky? An image from a fairytale or a children’s picture book is another great painting idea.
Get as creative as possible and don’t be afraid to show off your individual taste.
4. Candid Shots
Maybe you want to show off your silly side for your maternity photo shoot. In that case, you can’t go wrong with some candid photos.
Candids are less posed but just as lovely. They let you show off your sense of humor and sensibility. There are some funny things about pregnancy and motherhood so why not embrace them here?
Include your wacky food cravings or take a photo of you hanging around in your favorite spot. Share a laugh with your partner or other children. The idea is to keep is playful and casual.
There are so many settings and activities that make adorable candid photos. Try posing while doing your favorite things such as reading or cooking.
5. The Milk Bath
The milk bath is one of the most unique pregnancy photo shoot ideas out there.
This concept involves submerging yourself into a milk bath, either wearing a cute outfit or going all natural. Adding flowers is the best way to create an artistic and delicate aesthetic. You can use daisies, orchids, roses, or any other beautiful petals that fit your style.
6. Baby Animals
Babies are adorable, human or otherwise.
If you want to make people lose their minds over cuteness, try posing with some baby animals. Tiny goats, bunnies, ducklings, kittens, and puppies make great counterparts for a maternity photo shoot. You can even incorporate a family pet.

Ottawa Maternity Photography – Nikki & Tim
My sister-in-law and her beau came to visit us in Ottawa and of course I just had to take some maternity photos of them while they were in town. I really wish they lived close to us so that I could capture photos of their little one when he/she is born. But for now, I was really happy just taking some photos of the baby while he/she is still in momma’s belly. 🙂
