Any interesting ideas for my maternity photo shoot at 34 weeks? I’d rather not be nude or significantly undressed, but I’ll be doing some pictures inside and a bunch outside.
Here’s a sample of my photographer’s work:
What should I do? Any fun ideas?

I like your photographer’s style! I’m sure they’ll be great whatever you choose to do!!

I always love the daddy’s hands on the belly =) then maybe you could lay on your back and use those letter baby blocks and spell baby with them and get a side shot. (like the picture below)

I think a simple parasol is always really pretty in maternity shoots.
If you are into it, you could do a hand painted henna style design.
It all depends how “cute” you want to be! LOL. As long as you don’t do the “hands making a heart over your belly button” shot, you should be good!
Make it personal… that’s most important. For example, if you have eaten olives like crazy during your pregnancy, bring a jar with you! The goal is to remember YOUR pregnancy, the feelings and cravings that you had! 🙂
Wear simple clothing that shows off your shape, but is still comfortable. Your photographer seems like she keeps things very simple, clean lines, neutral colors, and beautiful lines.
If you have a “crazy” idea or want to do something different, speak up and let her know.

How about daddy painting your belly? I always thought those were cute.
Please PLEASE don’t be nude. I’ve seen too many photos were the woman is topless and the daddy to be is grabbing her breasts.

@SBourgeous: Hahaha, no. Daddy refuses to be in the pictures at all, so it’s just me, and I won’t be hugging my naked body.
He’ll be in the newborn shots or the other baby shots later on down the road, but Darling Husband is really not a photography guy and I think I can do a fun maternity shoot on my own!

@SBourgeous: Have you seen that website of horrifying maternity photos? Where they pose with guns and in the nude? Oh lord, it’s hilarious. I had a good long laugh at it. The link was on the boards somewhere, but I never saved it.
I love the idea of featuring the foods you craved, that’s so cute! I think a tight stripey shirt would also photograph well, especially if you’re not into a bare belly at all. If you’re taking some at home, it would be cute to do a few in the nursery, of you folding onesies or decorating the room.

HA! That’s exactly what I was referring to! Totally beyond me why anyone wants the whole world to see them naked – not to mention the potential embarassment to your child when they grow up!
I didn’t even see the food cravings idea – so funny and personal!

@MissSunshine: I was just coming in here to recommend the henna belly!
