A trend started by a New York photographer Annie Leibovitz with her portrait of a pregnant nude Demi Moore in the 90’s, is now a well-established art form. This iconic photograph was featured on a cover of Vanity Fair and certainly got everyone talking.
Whether is a black and white maternity nude or a fun outdoor couple’s portraits, capturing this unique time in your life, is a must do for a lot of expectant mothers.
High-profile celebrity mums-to-be being not afraid to push the boundaries, prefer to have portraits of themselves which will be unique to them and their brand. Good on them! Beyoncé’s maternity portraits certainly got everyone talking about them and I would be hugely disappointed if she announced her pregnancy with selfie taken with a phone camera.
So, what are your choices if you aren’t crazy about having huge flower wreaths in your portraits but would love to have a modern and stylish pregnancy portrait? Studio portraits are the most popular with maternity nudes being requested at 99% of the sessions. That's a lot of very brave mums-to-be out there!
Catching on are also lifestyle outdoor sessions for those who prefer the great outdoors.
Some couples love to have some personal portraits captured at their home - another lovely idea.
Here are not only my favourite but also the most popular maternity photography poses.
