Maternity Photoshoot Poses for any Couple

Are you expecting a baby on the way? Are you debating taking maternity photos? 

Being pregnant may not always be bliss, but it is a beautiful part of life! I mean, you’re growing an entire human for nine months! There’s no moment in life NOT worth photographing.

Simple Maternity Poses

If you’re not a couple used to being photographed, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! A good photographer will help prompt and pose you. My goal in all of my photography is to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera with as much interaction with your significant other as possible. 

At Savvy Shoots, my mission is to capture your authentic reactions and emotions so you can look back at your photos in 20 years and remember exactly how you felt at this exact time!

Here are some go-to poses I use for my clients:

  • Walking and holding hands (make sure mom’s got a hand on the belly for this!
  • Looking at each other & focusing on how excited you are
  • Smiling at the belly
  • Snuggle up close and put your hands on the belly
  • Use props like sonograms, shoes & onesies!
  • Include other siblings in the shoot when you can. Have them kiss/hug the belly!
  • Hold hands with booties in between!
  • Hold out the ultrasound photos!
  • Mom look down at belly and dad kiss mom’s forehead
  • Get a shot of the feet with the booties

I always prompt mom to put her hands on her belly to really showcase the bump, too! The purpose of a maternity shoot is to really reflect on what this time means for you and your partner. Photoshoots are meant to be fun and meaningful.
