Maternity Photo Trends

We’re solidly into the year, so we should go over some of the maternity photoshoot trends that are really taking over the scene. While you’ve probably seen them before, you might not have know where to get them. Keep reading until the end to find out where!

So, here are some of the most popular maternity photoshoot ideas of 2021.

1. Water-Themed Photoshoot

There has been a pretty huge trend in maternity shoots (and photography in general) to get in the water. Whether that be waiting for a wave in the ocean, standing at the bottom of a swimming pool, or simply submerging in a bathtub – water is an easy and effective way to elevate your photos.

2. Heart Hand Partner Shot

The layered heart hand shot has been around for a while, but it is really ramping up in popularity recently. We can most likely attribute that to a rise in the need for simpler, more personal maternity photoshoots following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whatever it was, you’ll definitely want to consider adding this heart-warming (pun intended) photo to your shoot.

3. Deep In Nature Maternity Shoot

While all portraits in nature are wonderful, there’s something really magical about maternity photos in a natural setting. Maternity is bringing life into the world, which is quite possibly the most natural thing we humans still do. If you like simple, timeless elegance, nature maternity shoots are the way to go.

4. Fabric Draping Maternity Photos

Possibly the biggest maternity trend of the moment, fabric draping has become a staple skill for all maternity photographers. The right photographer can create a gorgeous effect with draping, lighting, and a little wind (via an in-studio fan). The flowing of the fabric along with your glowing face is a sure-fire way to create a majestic, whimsical maternity photoshoot that you’ll simply have to frame.

If you’re interested in any of the above concepts, you could try them yourself or you could sign up for one of my maternity photoshoot packages. Their outdoor or in-studio (your choice) and spouses are encouraged to join, so we can sneak in one of those heart hand poses.
