The best part of maternity shoots is capturing the anticipation and glow on a mother-to-be's face. On a normal day, deciding what to wear can feel like quite the feat, let alone when you're pregnant and have to dress a body you're not so familiar with. Regardless of what stage of pregnancy you're in, these style tips will surely make your photos look both flattering and beautiful.

Looking for something timeless and that won't date your photos? Pink Blush has all your wardrobe essentials and stand out pieces that are to die for. Particularly their maxi and hi-low dresses are perfect to accentuate your baby bump.
Keep your eye open to textures when picking your maternity shoot outfit. Texture adds more dimension to the photos and is a great alternative to a pattern or print. A Pea in a Pod has a great selection of embroidered and ruched dresses.

If you're having your maternity photos taken in the fall or winter, check out ASOS for off-the-shoulder knit sweaters and scarves. It is generally best to stick to a neutral palette during the colder seasons, but ASOS offers a wide range of colors to choose from. Their fitted dresses and slogan t-shirts are my favorites.
The world is your oyster when it comes to Amazon; they literally have everything. Look for something that is snug against your belly and gathered at the sides to show off your baby bump. Try looking for maxi dresses, sheer pieces, and dresses that tie at the waist.
