Key things you must do to look beautiful for your maternity photoshoot
Pregnancy is an important time in your life and that of many other women in Singapore. Since it is special, it is wise that you take beautiful maternity pictures.
If you are like most expecting mothers in Singapore, you will want to look your best for your outdoor maternity photoshoot in Singapore.
To look great in your maternity photos, there are some things you must do. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of them.
Finding a maternity photographer
Even if you wear a beautiful dress and strike an awesome pose, you aren’t going to look great if your photographer doesn’t know how to take maternity photos.
So, instead of hiring just any photographer, pick one who has years of experience in taking maternity photos.
Ensure that that you pick a photographer whose style intertwines or resonates with yours.
An effective way to learn about the style and experience level of a photographer is by exploring their portfolio, as well as some of the recent pictures they have taken.
If the quality of their work isn’t consistent, chances are, they won’t be able to give you the results you desire.
Preparing for the shoot
To ensure that your maternity photos look stunning, you should take them when you are 27 to 36 weeks along. During this period, your belly will be full, and you will be able to strike a pose without stressing yourself out.
Expecting mothers with twins should take their maternity pictures a little bit earlier (26- 32 weeks).
Makeup and Hair
Resist the urge to do your hair and makeup yourself on the day or the day before your photoshoot. Make an appointment with a professional hairstylist and a makeup artist before your shoot.
However, if you are on a tight budget and can’t afford the services of these professionals, you can do your make up on your own.
See, you don’t have to cudgel your brain trying to figure out how to strike a great pose. Your photographer will give you clear instructions on how to pose to look your best on the day of your photoshoot.
