Pregnancy is an extraordinary time for moms-to-be, and what better way to celebrate these fleeting moments than with a maternity photo session? As you welcome your little bundle of joy, consider hiring a professional Indianapolis maternity photographer! I specialize in Westfield photography maternity sessions so that Indiana moms-to-be look their best. What better way to remember these precious moments than with beautiful photographs you can look back on and cherish forever?
What to Look for in Westfield Photography
When documenting memories, a maternity photographer knows how to get the best shots. They will take their time during the session, allowing you to feel comfortable in front of the camera and capture your unique personality and those sweet moments between you and your partner. Also, they have access to top-quality gear and editing tools that can give your photos an extra special touch. If you’re looking for custom wall art or frames for family pictures, make sure the photographer offers that.
What To Look For In a Maternity Photographer
When hiring a photographer for your maternity session, make sure they specialize in maternity photos, as posing a mom-to-be is very different than traditional posing. Furthermore, make sure you like their photography editing style. Searching online is an excellent way to find portfolios of work by various photographers to get an idea of their style. Finally, it would help to read past client reviews – usually available on their website or social media pages.
What To Wear for a Maternity Photo Shoot
Your outfit should be something that makes you feel comfortable but also lets you express yourself! Make sure it’s something timeless, like a cream maxi dress or floral midi dress, that won’t be outdated when you look back on these photos years later. I offer a client closet of dresses for moms to borrow and wear for their sessions. These dresses are a carefully curated collection of flattering maxi and midi dresses perfect for maternity and postpartum. You can see a few of my studio wardrobe dresses in the images of this post. My client closet is one of the perks of working with me that moms-to-be rave about! I also work with you to style the rest of the family for a cohesive look.

The Best Time to Take Maternity Pictures
The best time to take maternity photos is around 28-34 weeks of pregnancy. If you’re carrying twins, I recommend a bit earlier. We want your belly to be nice and round but not so far into the third trimester that you start to feel uncomfortable.
How to Choose a Studio or an Outdoor Location
Once you’ve chosen a photographer, you’ll decide between a studio or an outdoor session. There are many pros and cons of an outdoor maternity photoshoot. The time of year may be a significant factor in your decision, especially if other young children are involved in the session. We don’t want kids freezing outdoors in Indiana weather! Furthermore, a studio may be a better choice if you’re looking for a more intimate session or just like the look of studio portraits. We’ll discuss your vision and help you decide which location is best for you. Also, you can read more about the pros and cons of an outdoor maternity photoshoot in Indianapolis.
A maternity photo session is the best way to capture this amazing time in life. When looking for a maternity photographer, research beforehand to know what style of photographs you’ll get. From taking advantage of my client closet to helping you choose a location, I’ll cover every detail. The result is you’ll have stunning pictures that will last a lifetime!
