With our own little bundle of joy on the way in July, I’ve had maternity portraits on the brain! We didn’t get “real” maternity portraits taken the first time around (I know, shame on me), so I’m really excited to capture this special time for round two! It’s so easy to feel frumpy and unattractive in some of the maternity clothes out there, but there are a lot of really cute outfits too! I’ve chosen a couple of different styles and paired them with a coordinating looks for your man as well.
Style number one is the “Urban Chic” look. You can be pregnant and still be super trendy and stylish! I LOVE this dress, I think the neckline gives some great balance for your adorable baby bump. J Being a Texas girl, I substituted the boots in the image for something a little more southern, and I added a vintage headband and necklace for a sweet feminine touch. As an extra sweet bonus for you, TFJ Designs is offering 15% off of the first 10 orders of the Kayla headband (shown here) using the code: WWKAYLA15! Make sure to click on the link below in the shopping list to take advantage ASAP! If you do miss out, check around her shop, she has plenty of adorable accessories. Dress your guy up in this modern take on an old classic – he is also the perfect accessory!
Style number two is the “Casual Cool” look. I picture these outfits in a natural setting where the colors will really pop. I love the layering in this outfit, and it just goes to show that our standard style advice still applies even in a maternity wardrobe … layers, textures, and accessories! I found some great jewelry to round out this adorable ensemble, and even included an accessory for your hubby too (if he’ll go for it!).
Just remember, pregnancy is something to be celebrated and commemorated, no matter how much weight you’ve gained or how unattractive you may feel. You DO look beautiful, and your kiddos will love looking back on these images one day too!
