Tulle Maternity Friendly Dress (comes in over 30 colors)!
To be honest, I wasn’t feeling much like taking professional maternity photos. They are STUNNING and I’d been saving inspiration to my phone for years. But, I was exhausted from worrying and holding my breath every doctor’s appointment. I’d spend the first half of my pregnancy stressed I’d have another miscarriage and it took away some of the joy in hindsight. By 36 weeks, those fears had slowly subsided but I still wasn’t in a carefree place and was still adjusting to the changing version of myself.
So, we did something that felt a lot more manageable to me. I ordered this tulle dress from amazon (it comes in a bunch of colors), we went to a hiking trail right next to our home, and spent 30 minutes taking a few photos before sunset. I’m so glad we documented this! This dress was stunning too. It flowed so beautifully. It was quite sheer, definitely intended for maternity photos and not necessarily public events but worth it. I wore these Spanx underneath which saved me throughout pregnancy! They are a must have whenever you’re wearing dresses. Get your pre-pregnancy size.
PS. this post has another easy photoshoot idea if you happen to feel a lot like I did. We shot it in 5 minutes at home!
