Show Off Your Bump: 15 Inspiring Maternity Photos

Tomorrow I will be doing something I’ve never done before. Professional maternity photos. 4 kids later and nothing to show, just a few here and there bump shots. But, not many. So, now that we are on lucky #5, and the very last, I’ve decided, let’s do it. And of course, I couldn’t do them without my lovely best friend who just so happens to be a photographer, too!

Another first for us will be family photos. Shocking right? Our oldest is 9 and even though we have plenty of pictures together we have never had the chance to professionally have family portraits taken. I am super excited for our big day!

For the last few weeks I’ve browsed tons of inspiration, picked out our wardrobe to coordinate {I put Mr.Darling in a Michael Kors pink polo, yep – he loves me!} and prepared for these maternity shots. I’ve never even thought to do this with the past pregnancies so I will say, I am a little nervous. I am far from Kate Moss. I’m hoping I can just embrace the moment and not hate the way I look on camera. I love taking pictures but I am not a fan of being the one in front of the camera.

For those of you preparing to document this special time in your life, I thought I would share 15 inspiring maternity photos, after the jump.

Can’t wait to show you mine + please, share links to yours!

    Great for a winter baby! Inspired by a vintage coat, this maternity shoot uses lots of great props to really show off the bump. Framing a sono to place next to your tummy is a great idea!
