Busting 5 Maternity Photography Myths

Hey there, mama-to-be!

Are you considering a maternity photoshoot but feeling a bit hesitant because of all the myths floating around? Well, fear not! We're here to debunk those common misconceptions and show you why maternity photography is an awesome experience for expectant mums like you.

Myth 1: Maternity Photography Is Only for the Final Weeks of Pregnancy

Okay, let's get one thing straight – your baby bump is beautiful at every stage of pregnancy! Whether you're rocking a tiny bump or a big one, there's no right or wrong time to schedule your maternity session. From those early moments of showing to the final countdown, each stage of pregnancy has its own unique charm. So, don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

Now, its the one time we do say “The bigger the better” so later on in pregnancy (around 30+ weeks) is ideal so you can really show of they BE-A-UTIFUL bump!

Myth 2: You Need to Have a Perfect Baby Bump

Every Bump is the "perfect" baby bump. Every bump is a badge of honour, a symbol of the incredible journey you're on. So, whether your bump is petite and cute or bold and proud, it's worth celebrating! Professional maternity photographers are wizards at making you feel like the goddess you are, no matter the size or shape of your bump.

You don't have to bare it all to capture the beauty of pregnancy. There are plenty of classy and comfy outfit options that will make you feel like a million bucks while still keeping you covered.
