Adding an accessory or a prop can be an easy way to bring your maternity photos to the next level. Accessories can add drama, a bit of class, or even fun to your photos. There are so many possibilities so this post will just cover the basics.
Adding fabric is a simple way to add a lot of drama into your photo. The photographer can drape the fabric around your body or attach from the waist then use an assistant to toss the loose end into the air.
Adding a flower crown to an outdoor nature portrait session is the perfect combination to relate you the subject to your surroundings. Hats in an urban or other residential setting can likewise add to the theme of the environment.
Nature can add a peaceful or romantic feeling to your portrait session. Being pregnant is an indisputable sign of fertility and adding flora can enhance that symbolism in your photos.
Using props can be one of the most fun ways to add variety to your maternity session. I love when my clients have their own ideas for a session. They often will find great ideas on Pinterest then we recreate them during our session.
