How To Take The Perfect Baby Bump Photo...EXPLAINED
Want to document your baby bump with a few great photos? Taking a photo of your growing belly can be difficult, so you want the photo to look good and capture the happiness of what you’re experiencing. The following advice will help you take the perfect baby bump picture to share with your friends and family.
Dress for Success
Certain outfits are better than others when it comes time to take a baby bump photo. Flowing solid color clothing that enhances the belly is best for a baby bump photo shoot, and if you have your heart set on a pattern, then make sure to choose a soft pattern.
Choose the Right Angle
Choosing the right angle is the key to shooting a good baby bump photo. Not sure how to stand? A side profile is best for capturing your growing belly. To pose correctly, move your hips back and push your belly out. Rest your hands on top of your bump, and stand in front of a solid background. You don’t want to have anything in the background that will divert your eyes from your bump.
Details, Details, Details
To document your growing baby bump you want to take a picture every two weeks or once a month. Note the camera angle and background you use in your first shoot because you want these to be the same in each picture you take.
Use the Right Equipment
If you really want to document your transformation when you are pregnant, you should steer clear of using any crappy cameras, invest in a good DSLR camera or use your new smartphone (only if the camera is amazing). You also may want to consider getting a good tripod if you are taking selfies.
