For event planner Maria, of Tie The Knot Santorini, styling her own maternity session was an extra special project. She achieved beauty and simplicity with the help of a little hair & makeup and a cozy, homey, set up. With that in place, Anna Roussos Photography worked her magic behind the camera while Maria and her baby daddy posed in front of it. The result? These stunning, chic intimate maternity photos. Read on for Maria’s tips when planning your own maternity session below!
Maria says, I just loved styling my very own maternity photo shoot with my favorite photographer, Anna Roussos! These 9 months of pregnancy can be difficult for a woman. We should always find the way to enjoy this beautiful period of our life though. So, a maternity photo shoot is definitely a must have. We can put on our nice dresses that will emphasize that beautiful bump, have our hair and make up done, and hire an amazing photographer to capture this beautiful period of our life, that honestly is not that long (no matter what you think in the beginning). I am so happy I decided to do so!!
I would recommend to all lovely future moms to have a maternity photo shoot!! Here are a few tips from me so this can be a wonderful experience with amazing images :
1. Schedule it on the 2nd trimester, when the bump is not that huge and you still feel light and energetic.
2. Choose a photographer a carefully – someone whose work you like and also who you feel comfortable with.
3. Spoil yourself with professional hair & make up, and why not a Spa experience before the photo shoot.
4. Lastly, if your other half is positive about it, have him on board!! He will also treasure these wonderful moments through the photos 🙂
