When I first found out I was pregnant I knew that I wanted to document my growing belly by taking a weekly “bumpdate” photo. I’d seen a few other gals do this on Instagram and I just loved the beauty and simplicity of the pictures. Really all you need is someone willing to take your photo once a week, a consistent background (white bedroom wall FTW!) and an outfit that can accommodate 20+ weeks of tummy growth. The first two things are easy… The third? A little tricky!
Where To Buy Maternity Photo Dresses
Since I began shooting my “bumpdates” I regularly get asked, “Where did you get your dress?” Sadly the one I’ve been wearing in my photos is a 5+ year old sale find from a brand that no longer exists… Ugh I’m sorry gals! That said, there are tons of similar options out there that would easily give you a near identical look. There are also maternity brands that make gowns and dresses specifically for photoshoots! I rounded up some options below that I think would look stunning in photos, whether you’re 15 weeks and only starting to “pop” or just about ready to say hello to your little one at 39 weeks!
1. Cold Shoulder Chiffon Gown | 2. Convertible Tulle Dress | 3. Pink Metallic Long Sleeve Gown | 4. Off the Shoulder Gown | 5. Flowy Chiffon Dress | 6. Off the Shoulder Wrap Gown | 7. Pink Tie Back Chiffon Dress | 8. Black Off the Shoulder Dress | 9. Convertible Maxi Dress | 10. Drapey High Slit Gown | 11. White Off the Shoulder Gown | 12. Light Blue Ruffle Dress
