Let me start off by saying this, I have been pregnant three times, the last of which was a twin pregnancy, I am not about to body shame a pregnant woman. I have been there. I've been where I can no longer drive because I no longer fit behind the wheel. I've had to only wear dresses because my gut hung out of every shirt I owned. It was ugly.
You want your belly to be big and beautiful, but you don't want it to be so large that posing and holding different positions for any length of time becomes taxing. Professional photographer Mariah Milan Dagupion suggests taking photos right around 30 weeks. That's when your belly gets really round, she says, but it's not too heavy yet. Of course each pregnancy and pregnant belly is different so use your own stamina as a guide. Just like professional photographers, style your backdrop.
Ladies, why are we so shy with our beautiful pregnant bodies? On all the plus sized bump threads I see mostly average sized women, late stage pregnancy, when they feel confident that their B bellies have rounded out! Let's be real..
Isn't it amazing to see those photos of pregnant women's bellies where their baby's hands or feet are clearly visible? You know, when they're kind of protruding out from her baby bump -- like in this photo? Yeah, that's nothing compared to the mom who saw the outline of a baby's face on her growing tummy. It's just as weird as it sounds.
