Head photographer and Managing Partner of Studio Loft, Maryann Koh’s tips:
1. The best time to do a maternity photoshoot is when you’re 33 weeks along (unless you’re expecting multiples) – this is when your belly becomes firm and taut and looks best in pictures.
But it’s also when many mothers may feel bloated, unattractive or self-conscious. “As a mother of two myself, I identify with my pregnant clients, and often share many tricks to help them look and feel beautiful,” Maryann says. “This puts them at ease and it shows in the photos.”
2. Shooting your newborn? Book your photoshoot early to ensure availability. And don’t stress if your little one is overdue. You can always make arrangements to shift the date after you give birth.
If you’ve got a theme in mind, share your ideas with your assigned photographer. Or, just wait to be inspired by the many cute props and outfi ts the studio can provide.
3. Do ample baby prep. Make sure your baby has a very full belly so he or she can start right away with the poses and shots.
If possible, keep your newborn awake for 1 to 2 hours before coming to help make him or her sleepier.
Leave on the baby’s diaper and swaddle him or her in a cloth or blanket before leaving home, and bring a pacifier or a soothing item in case he or she gets agitated.
4. Dress light to stay cool as the studio airconditioning is usually switched off during a newborn shoot.
