Virginia Bred, HBCU Maternity Shoot: Tips for Maternity Shoots

Don’t be afraid to dress up. No matter what stage of your pregnancy, have a little fun and get dolled up. A flowing dress is comfortable and a stylish option for any season of the year.
Let nature be your backdrop. The south is full of beautiful places and nature is our best asset. A beautiful wall of greenery is all you need for a stunning maternity shoot.
Show off that bump. Being pregnant is a special time in a woman’s life and should be celebrated. Take time to show off your bump in all of its true glory.
Have a little fun and show some of your personality. Whether you share your greek affiliation or just poke fun at each other. Take time to enjoy yourself and laugh with your significant other during your maternity shoot.
Use What You Have to Add a Pop of Color. Whether it is a vintage car or a hydrangea bush, be sure to add a punch of color to your maternity shoot.
Take time to enjoy each other. No matter how you feel, take time to appreciate each other and the experience you are about to have on the journey of parenthood. A kiss always makes swollen feet feel better 🙂
