8 Tips to Dressing Your Bump! | What to Wear for Your Maternity Photoshoot

Doing your Maternity Photoshoots soon or still can’t decide what to wear?

We understand the dilemma of selecting that perfect wardrobe can be daunting.

After thousands of maternity shoots, let us help you! Here are some tips…

Outfit Inspiration for Mummies

1. Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are perfect for maternity shoots as they are very comfortable and flattering. It’s great for showing off your beautiful baby bump, but can also cover up any ‘problem areas’. The dress can be halter neck, 3/4 sleeved, off-shoulders or even sleeveless, take your pick!

2. Body Hugging Clothing

Body hugging clothing looks great to show off those beautiful pregnancy curves. It’s simple and keeps the attention drawn to your tummy and you.

3. Solid Colours

We recommend solid colours as this would help your bump stand out the most. Simple solid color focus the attention on your baby bump.

4. Bare Your Bump

If you’d like to show off your bare bump, we recommend wearing a solid, coloured tube and matching bottom. You can also wear crop tops or a shirt with buttons undone and matching bottoms/denims (non-maternity type) to show off the shape of your bump

5. Texture Texture Texture

You can make your photos look more interesting by wearing clothing with different textures. It’s a great alternative to prints or patterns, and adds more dimension to your photos. You can wear an embroidered top, lace dress or pair your denim jeans with a cotton shirt. Be creative!

6. For More Intimate/Sensual Images

If you’re thinking of doing a more intimate and sensual shoot, we recommend bringing along some nice lingerie or sheer baby doll dresses in soft muted colours.

Sheer, lace robes are also perfect for that soft romantic look. They show off your baby bump but also help hide any unflattering areas.

If you’re thinking of getting your own robes, we recommend the robes from Bell & Birds! You can check out our blogpost to see how we styled these robes during a maternity studio and milk bath shoot. We also have an exclusive discount code for Bambini’s clients, use “Bambini10” to get 10% off all purchases from their online store!

Or go for something edgy, robes like these or even a leather jacket works too!

7. Simply Use What We Have In The Studio

Feeling tired, out of wits, out of time, simply not sure or whatever reasons, no worries!

We have a selection of clothing and materials in our studio too, just let us know beforehand so we can get ready some ideas and prep the fabric drapes, dresses, tubes and bottoms for your maternity photo shoot!

We will style it up for you! Some mummies prefer to go completely bare under the drapes, if not you can bring nude/black/white coloured undies to wear underneath.

8. Modest Wear

Modest wear has been on a rising trend and here’s some ideas how you can match it up for your maternity session with us. We look most beautiful when we feel confident and comfortable with ourselves. With that, the photos will show your pregnancy glow too.

VIEW OUR MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT GALLERY

Impressive service, exceptional photography. We booked a family/maternity shoot for a weekend morning, but when the day arrived, everything seemed to go wrong: my makeup artist was a no-show and my daughter was sick and very cranky as a result. We nearly wanted to postpone the shoot, but decided not to in the end. Our photographer, Fatilyn, and another of the staff, Melissa, were very patient in handling our fussy child and managing the entire session. Still, I wasn’t too optimistic about the outcome, until I saw the photos, which were sent to us the very next day. They are of great quality and we couldn’t have asked for a better set of photos despite the circumstances that day! – Clarice Ting

Top 5 Favourite Outdoor Locations for Family and Maternity Photoshoots

Where should we go for our family photoshoots?

Do you recommend shooting outdoors for maternity and/or family photoshoots?

How would the photos turn out?

We decided to put together the images we have captured at our favourite outdoor locations for you to see all of them at a glance! So, just scroll down! :D

1. Singapore Botanic Gardens

There’s so much to explore and different looks to photograph all within one location! The iconic pavillion is a must-have in your family photo! It’s playtime and break-time when we head to the swings, take a seat and let’s catch some evening breeze. Big trees that towers over you, a fascinating sight for your children and of course, running space in the fields! We can even head to the Jacob Ballas children’s garden – you know it’s designed for children when the security stops you when there is no accompanying child in sight to gain entry into the garden.

2. Marina Barrage

The vast blue skies, yes. With all that strong wind we get there, remember to bring along your kites and we can have some fun flying them! Let us take the photos and you can be in the moment with your children. Nothing’s more precious than having shared conversations and shared memories – isn’t that what makes us feel most connected. Not forgetting our beautiful Singapore cityscape that we can capture in the background of our photos too!

3. East Coast Park

It’s the beach! Sun, sea and the breeze :D I’m already feeling all serene looking at this set of maternity images taken at East Coast Park. Get your long flowy maxi dresses, put on a flower crown and let’s go barefoot by the seashore. Have your hubby join in for your maternity photoshoot, take a stroll hand-in-hand, like a date in the park

4. Ann Siang Hill/Club Street

Looking for something that shows more of our Singapore heritage? How about the look of shophouses and those peranakan tiles? There are some lovely stores and brightly coloured walls at Ann Siang Hill that sure doesn’t disappoint and adds the vibrancy to your family photos. You can find variety here – a little bit of a park, traditional storefronts, bright red walls, alleyways for that rustic look, and flowers!

5. Gardens by the Bay/Flower Dome/Gardens By The Bay EAST

Bring your whole family, your cousins and grandparents – let’s have a family photoshoot at Gardens by the Bay East. This is another location we can capture our Singapore city skyline in the background. And if you want to capture the outdoor look and not feel our Singapore heat, we have a solution for you! We can head down to have photos taken in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, it is air-conditioned. No sweat, literally.

A Celebration of Time and Moment | Family Photography

There is a saying that goes, “Children Spell L O V E as T I M E. There may be many reasons as to why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace the time lost. Once lost, it’s gone forever, you can never recreate the moment again.”

We, at Bambini Photography are fervent believers of time because the nature of our work is such that we are surrounded by it. We are the moments capturers, photo studio who specialise in children and family photography.

Too often we hear parents say, “Can’t believe how fast they’ve grown, it felt just like yesterday when they are this small.”

Time and again we see familiar faces, families who have come to us year after year to have their photos taken with their children. We have in part become their family as we follow their stories, the newborns we once photographed have in turned became toddlers and subsequently young girls and boys.

How Do I Decide? Studio Maternity or Milkbath Maternity Photoshoot?

I’m sure by now, many of you have seen those beautiful maternity milkbath images…

Now the question for many mummies-to-be is:
How do I decide which maternity photoshoot is better? 

Or which is more suitable?
Then there is the question if you can do both?

Firstly, there is no “which is better”, it’s which do you prefer? 

And regarding if you can do both?
Of course you can!


Here are some answers to the concerns you may have:

“I really like the pictures I see, but I’m not good at posing”

Here’s where our trained photographers play the part, we’re not expecting you to know how to pose, and we will guide you through every shot, up to where to place your hand, how to stand, or sit, or lie down, where to look.

Do you have a preferred side, we’ll work with that. Our photographers are all ladies too, and we know how it’s like when our hair is not looking the best – we’ll help you adjust your hair through the session too, and watch out for anything that is out of place.

If there is one thing in common for photographers, we love details – and we look at details when we are photographing you. We do our best to cover any little part and we need your help too and we’ll work together to create the images you love.

“It looks difficult to pose for those maternity milkbath shots…”

On the contrary, if you want to keep the posing to even a minimal with us, maternity milkbath is the way to go!

You are literally taking a milk spa, it’s a moisturizing soap we’re using to create the milky effect and you’re just soaking it in.

We’ll move around to get the best angles for you and occasionally guide you to where to place your hands and where to look or turn… That’s about it! Simple and easy. Beautiful images and soft supple skin after the shoot!

“I don’t have any suitable clothing or any nice clothes for photoshoot

But we have it! We have a selection in the studio that you can choose from. In one session, we usually do about 3 different styles so there is definitely enough looks for you.

We’re need your help to let us know if you would like to use our clothing and we’ll prepare them beforehand so when you come, we have everything ready for you!

If you need some help on what clothes you can bring from your own home to add on to what we have, you can find some inspiration here: 8 Tips to Dressing Your Bump

“Do I have to bring those nice fabrics you use for milkbath? But I don’t have any…

And you don’t have to bring any of those fabrics we use to drape and style for the maternity studio and milkbath images :)

They are all provided for in the studio, together with the floral elements we use in the milkbath. We have some flower crowns available as hair accessories too!

There are a few choices of colours, if you have a preference do let us know!

If you have a favourite in terms of choice for flowers, feel free to bring along some fresh flowers to incorporate into your milkbath photoshoot too!

“How can you ever say anything negative about your body after you have felt the dancing of life from inside your womb?”
– Amethyst Joy

“I want to have something to remember my pregnancy but I’m not sure if I’ll look good in photos…”

Don’t compare yourselves to models on magazines! Everything is photoshopped… And we photoshop too, but our goal is still to bring out the most natural and beauty of your pregnancy, so we won’t overdo the editing! We’re celebrating your curves and within you, you’re creating a new life :)

There are camera angles and lightings we can work with to create images to make you look flattering. Who doesn’t want that?

And what’s a better way to remember your memories of this moment than taking photos. We are here to be a part of your growing journey and after photographing hundreds and hundreds of mummies-to-be, and being women ourselves, we know your concerns on looking good and that is simply our job – to help you look good in photos.

“I’m concerned about my hair and make-up once it gets wet in the milkbath shots.”

Don’t worry about your face getting wet! It won’t be!

Your hair would get kind of wet, but not completely… And the wet hair is part of the look!
We will definitely be doing substantial amount of images with your hair still dry and if you have any curls done and leave getting the hair wet right at the end of the shoot.

If you like your hair in an updo, that’s great! Go with your preference, get your hair done how you like it.

We can attempt some hair-down shots towards the end of the shoot for some variety in your look as well.

All in all, we’re flexible. Let us know your preferences so we can adjust to your liking. If you don’t have any specific preference, we can recommend what we feel looks best on you too!
