This is the introduction to a six part series on Maternity Portrait Fashion 101.
A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to create a comprehensive guide for choosing what to wear at a maternity portrait session. I wanted to put in all of the basics of fashion and design into the guide. I had originally planned on this guide existing as one blog post with helpful tips and outlined simply but in the time I have been creating the guide it has exploded with all types of information that is all so helpful. So to make everything as clear and concise as possible I'm going to break it up into more manageable sections (and post in reverse order just so it's easy to read as you scroll). This guide will mainly cover more elegant or semi-formal wear. I have tried to make sure to stick to explaining the basic concepts as simply as I was able in a blog series. Enjoy!
