Top Places to Shop for Your Maternity Photo Shoot

Best Maternity Photographer in Nevada City

Preparing for a maternity photoshoot is an exciting time, and choosing the right outfits can enhance the beauty of the experience. Kendra Evans Photography specializes in capturing the essence of this special moment, so selecting the perfect attire is crucial. I recommend having at least three outfit options, and while I do offer some client closet options, I recommend bringing some options of your own as well. Here are some of the Top Places to Shop for Your Maternity Photo Shoot with Kendra Evans Photography

Lets face it! Nevada City is a little off the beaten path. Our adorable little Historic City is the perfect place to come for a weekend visit, but not the best place to shop for maternity clothes. The list I put together is all available online. If you have ideas to add to this list I would love to hear your comments at the bottom of the page!

Top outfits to consider

  • Jeans and crop top. This is a super classic look and goes nicely with a black background or a white background. Jeans that don’t zip up anymore are perfect for this! Choose a white or black crop top to pair with your jeans. Long-sleeved turtle neck crop tops are especially sophisticated.

  • Gown or dress. This can be anything from a super sexy snug pencil dress to a flowy skirt and a matching wrap crop top. If you look online for a tulle maternity gown or robe this will bring up lots of options! Etsy has so many amazing options for maternity gowns but one of my absolute favorites is Skaira Maternity
  • Accessories!! Often times I will have you posing in nothing but your accessories!! a lovely set of bangles or gobs of layered chain necklaces! You could find a mesh dress with gemstones on it that’s totally sheer. I will make sure to pose you in a classy way so the bits don’t show! This is totally the time to splurge on something amazing like these shoulder chains from Giva My Jewlry on Etsy or something similar! A few other fun ideas are a sports coat with sexy panties, solid color body suits or even a bathing suit.

  4. Poshmark: This is the most amazing online second-hand store!! Most of us will only ever wear our maternity photoshoot gown one time, so where better to shop for a stunning gown at a discount than an online second-hand store! Poshmark has tons of once-worn gowns and accessories for your shoot. hop on over and see what you can find!
  5. Amazon: Yep! Amazon has a ton of options for maternity gowns. Including tulle robes, gowns, bodysuits, and of course jewelry! You can find just about anything here and one tip I love to use is to find a brand you love, and then search for a knockoff brand on Amazon. Sometimes the quality is not as good so make sure to read reviews. I have had some good luck here though!

When shopping for your maternity photoshoot, consider the style and theme you envision. Make a Pinterest board of the styles you love and then choose 3-4 to shop for. And of course don’t limit yourself to my top five! Go crazy shopping for fun exciting and classy items that will make you feel incredible! Keep in mind you can always resell them after your shoot on Poshmark! Sometimes I will even buy them from you to add to my client closet!
