From T Haller Photography in North Vancouver, congratulations on your pregnancy! Preparing yourself for a maternity photoshoot should not be a stressful experience, in fact, your maternity shoot should be an empowering and beautiful part of your pregnancy.
Let’s discuss some tips for how to prepare for your maternity shoot from an experienced Vancouver maternity photographer.
Book your maternity photoshoot early to avoid unnecessary stress.
As we all know, anything that is last minute or rushed is bound to add unnecessary stress to your life. As a pregnant woman, more stress is the absolute last thing that you need! We recommend scheduling your maternity photoshoot sooner rather than later, preferably in your early second trimester. Getting this off of your to-do list will help you to alleviate unnecessary stress during your pregnancy.
Engage in self-care before your photoshoot!
Think of your maternity photos like wedding photos and treat yourself if you can! A fresh manicure and professionally styled hair and make up can do wonders to boost your confidence which is one of the incredible rewards of maternity photoshoots. Consider adding these extras in before your maternity photoshoot in order to elevate your look and your mindset!
Be sure to drink plenty of water and eat before your shoot.
Nourishing your body while you are pregnant is so incredibly important and especially so if you are doing something that is out of your comfort zone. Being nervous on an empty stomach is never good and can lead to increased nausea and discomfort. You should also do your best to drink water to avoid dehydration headaches and try to reduce swelling from dehydration!
