Document Your Journey to Motherhood Through Maternity Photo Sessions

It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time mom or not. But having a maternity photoshoot would change your journey to motherhood.

It won’t take long before you welcome your little angel to the world. So before time passes and you’ll have a kid running around the lawn one day, it’s best to document this stage of being a mother. Plus you won’t be pregnant forever and having a maternity photoshoot can help you capture this wonderful moment and freeze it in time.

Someday, you can also use these photos to show your kid the bond you share and the excitement you felt while still carrying them.

We, at Cobo Photography, would like to welcome you to motherhood with beautifully captured maternity photos. So if you are considering having a maternity photoshoot while waiting for your young one, here’s a small guide filled with tips on poses you can do during your maternity photo session.

Why Should You Take A Maternity Photoshoot?

Maternity photos can help you walk down memory lane and reminisce the feeling and excitement you felt while carrying your baby around.

It’s also a great way to document your pregnant glow! You won’t even realize it but after seeing your maternity photos, you will be shocked by how beautiful you are while you are pregnant.

Having a maternity photoshoot can also strengthen your and your spouse’s bond. You can also use these professional maternity photos as decorations for your home or your office.

And once your children grow up, you will have lots of fun showing them these wonderful pictures of you and your growing family.

Poses You Can Do During Your Maternity Photo Session

Whether you’re born as a camera person or not, taking maternity photos can be a new thing. That’s probably why almost all women who have done maternity photoshoots don’t know what to do and how to pose during the actual shoot. Luckily, we have here a few poses you can follow and do so you would look like a born model during a maternity photo session.

  • Hands On the Belly

Some people who see maternity photos may think that this pose is a common maternity pose. But actually, it’s more than that.

It’s very natural for a mother to touch her belly, even without a camera pointing at them. So if you are still warming up to the camera, why not start with this very natural pose and show everyone the beautiful person growing inside you?

  • Up High

Taking photos at a high angle can also be a great way to show everyone your growing belly. This is because this angle can minimize all other body parts except for your belly.

So if you want your belly to be the main subject, ask your photographer for an up high shot.

  • Straight Pose

You can see a lot of women posing in front of the camera on their sides during their pregnancy shoot. This is their way (and also their photographer’s way) to show off their round belly.

But if you have a well-pronounced bump, why not try a straight-on shot to let everyone see your whole front and your beautiful pregnant glow?

  • Back Hugs

Maternity photoshoots don’t only take photos of the mother. If your partner is around, it’s also a great time to bring them in and have a couple of photos together.

To show off the intimacy and the bond between you and your partner, you can try the most natural pose all couples do, the back hug.

This pose can also show the warmth and love both parents have for their unborn child. And also, this will show everyone how a father protects his family.

Having a maternity photoshoot can be a great experience to document your journey to motherhood. That’s why we highly recommend all mothers to do one. If you are planning to have one, you can contact us at Cobo Photography so we can offer you our great and professional maternity photography services.
