When you think back to your wedding and you recall how incredibly beautiful that day was, I’m sure a big part of that was your wedding gown. I still remember standing in the chapel with my dad, behind the doors that would swing open for him to walk me down the aisle. I had butterflies in my stomach and I was so ready for Jordan to see me in that amazing gown. The music started, the doors opened… what a rush of emotion to see my almost-husband waiting at the altar.
I know Jordan didn’t notice many of the gorgeous details that made me fall in love with that dress… but you can bet the women in attendance at our wedding did! Isn’t that what we do – check out the bride’s dress? Was it satin or lace? Ivory, champagne, candlelight (never white-white)? Lots of beading or simple and pure? So many details come together in one stunning gown that you wear for most sacred event of your life.
Why not experience that excitement, anticipation and joy again… but this time, for your baby. I firmly believe couples should celebrate their maternity photo sessions like you do your wedding day! Indulge in a beautiful gown, get your hair and makeup done and pamper yourself all day long. You deserve to make unforgettable memories of your pregnancy – and of course a major component of that is the gown you’ll wear!
Here are five vendors who offer lovely maternity gowns
MovaLightMaternity – check out the Julia gown. It’s available in a wine/maroon shade that takes my breath away.
SewTrendyAccessories – I adore the Floral Jessica gown and the Floral Colbie gown! I’m usually a big fan of solid colors for all of my photo sessions, but the prints on these dresses is so feminine and elegant. If you’re planning on a couples session in either of these gowns, your husband should wear solid colors so that you won’t clash.
LeahMariaCoutureShop – the Lauren Infinity gown is simply stunning!
JandLDesignsBoutique – any mama would look amazing in the Lace Baby Shower Maternity Gown
The Art of Pregnancy and Newborn by Ana Brandt – Literally everything she offers is breath-taking, so I don’t have a favorite. Everything in her shop showcases a mama’s curves so well.
Not ready to purchase a gown? Don’t forget, my clients have *exclusive* access to my signature collection of gorgeous wraps and gowns for maternity sessions!
Full disclosure – I’m not affiliated with any of these vendors and I don’t receive any special treatment or discount for listing them here. I simply think these gowns photograph beautifully!
Let’s mark this transition into parenthood with beautiful artwork you’ll treasure forever, just like you do your wedding photos. I can’t wait to plan a magical session just for you!
