If you are lucky enough to already have children and there is a little one on his way, you should definitely include the older brothers and sisters in your maternity photoshoot. There are lots of ways to do it, but the idea is to showcase your unity and love as a family.

In times like these, I am grateful to have these black men around for this little girl. 💗 Just a few of my favorites from the maternity shoot.

To some moms-to-be, this style of maternity photoshoots can seem too risqué, but having a baby soon is not a reason to forget you are also a beautiful woman on your own. Plus, this maternity shoot requires very little outfits or decorations, although you will need to invest in a good makeup artist and hairstylist.

The pain from all the kicking and tossing, can’t compare to the little bundle of joy that’s coming. 🙏🏾 @taiwo_smith

On the other hand, this photoshoot idea will need slightly more work. Painting these intricate, different, but, at the same time, related images on the bodies of the happy family will surely take time, but the results will be so amazing that you will be proud to hang this image on your wall.

Of course, nothing beats a classic maternity photoshoot with a floaty outfit and a mesmerizing scenery to use as your background. You can do it in the field, in the woods, or in the middle of a busy street, but for some reasons, maternity photoshoots near the ocean work absolutely perfectly.

And this maternity photo is simply breathtaking. This is another perfect opportunity to include the future big sibling in the picture, but even if you are only expecting your first baby, you can still take some cues about the gorgeous dress, the cute bathroom design, and the adorable flowers.

9months in vs 3 months out. If you would’ve asked me what my biggest fear was, 5 years ago. I would’ve said “giving birth”🤣. I’m the biggest baby when it comes to any type of pain or medical stuff. Getting shots or my blood drawn gives me the shakes. I literally couldn’t stop shaking during my entire labor process🤣( it was so embarrassing). As soon as I found I out I was pregnant, I HAD to change my mindset. I reminded myself daily. “God created your body for this! He will always be with you and cover you and babygirl”. I’m so grateful for him covering us 🥺. 3 months PP update: belly still jiggly, stretch marks are still shining bright and I have about 10lbs or pregnancy weight hanging in there lol but I’m beyond grateful for my body and all it has done😂 What are you grateful for today?❤️ @ayeciara
