Top 5 Places to get a Maternity Gown | What to Wear | Maternity Portrait Session | Jacksonville FL Maternity Photographer | St Augustine FL Maternity Photographer
"What should I wear?"
This is by far, the number one question Photographers hear. Rightfully so as what you wear can play a part in how you feel during your session and how much you love your images. (though if you hire an awesome photographer they can make it work of course)
Today I was sending some ideas of where to get dresses to a Maternity client for her portrait session and I realized, "There are probably other mommas to be wondering the same thing."
So, here it is. My:
1. Zulily: (zulily.com)
Most moms already know the wonders of Zulily.com.
Cute kids clothes? check.
Stuff for mom? check.
Toys, shoes and more? check.
They have everything and at prices that won't break the bank. So of course, you can grab some adorable Maternity dresses there.
The one below is on Zulily right now. And though, as Mommas to be we often drift towards solids this cute floral pattern would be adorable for your Maternity Portraits. Pair daddy in a solid green shirt and you can easily match big sister or big brother as well. If you are bold go for the print! But they have awesome solid colored dresses of all lengths and sizes too.
2. Ingrid & Isabel (ingridandisabel.com)
Admittedly, I stumbled on this adorable shop for all things Mama to be and new mama on Instagram. So, I had to check them on and they do not disappoint. Solids, patterns, adorable styles, they have it all!
I LOVE this classic white Maternity gown. Perfect for a Beach Maternity Session or even a gorgeous Lifestyle Maternity Portrait Session. They have alot to choose from so check them out!
3. H&M (H&M.com)
I personally LOVE H&M. For my clothes, my girl's clothes, they are amazing. Fashion forward styles at awesome prices. So of course, I had to check them out. Not as many dress options as some of the other sites, but totally worth a peek.
I loved this yellow dress. Maternity Portrait session followed by date night perfection. Great jewelry and a cute pair of shoes and you could do a downtown St Augustine FL Maternity Session or of course barefoot on the beach!
4. Old Navy (OldNavy.com)
Ok. I like a good deal. I use Groupon and LocalFlavor. So, I shop places that can give me affordable style. Old Navy is one. Especially for my girls. But even during my own Maternity days years ago, I loved Old Navy.
I wish they had some of the dresses I found today back then. Especially this basic grey Maxi (also comes in black). Dress it up or dress it down. As a formerly, pregnant in summer, mama the heat gets real fast. This would be cool, comfortable and with some jewelry perfect for a Maternity Portrait session. Beach, field, even Lifestyle Portrait session at your home it would work.
Another bonus? You could still wear it post baby without the "it's so obvious I'm still in Maternity clothes" feeling. They have many other options to choose from as well. Whether for a Maternity Portrait Session or everyday wear it's worth a look for certain.
5. Amazon (Amazon.com)
What is a list of Online Maternity Dress shopping without Amazon? Of course you can find tons of options of all styles and budgets that can be shipped to your door in a day or two. AMAZING for last minute Maternity Portrait shopping because you know, pregnancy brain. (It's a thing. Or it was for me. Maybe I was just odd?)
As it is summer, I LOVE this dress I fund on Amazon. Perfect for Beach Maternity Portrait Sessions and everyday wear all summer long.
Here are a few more dress ideas from recent sessions for you. Have fun. stay true to your style and love that beautiful baby bump!
