*Bring both light and dark tops like Heather did (above). That bright pink was just perfect, and lacy or knitted sweaters like her red one are super fun. Black is fantastic for side shots, but in other poses it can really hide your gorgeous belly. Don't forget to bring colors!
*If you feel comfortable, don’t be afraid to rock some fabulous shoes. But, absolutely make sure to bring a pair of flat walking shoes if we are moving between locations. You won't want to be running around in heels the whole time!
*Keep it simple! Super busy patterns are typically distracting from your beautiful baby belly.
*Don't be afraid of showing off your belly because of stretch marks. They are a beautiful, natural part of motherhood (and if you hate them, they can always be edited out!).
*Props! It's always fun to announce your upcoming addition in a creative way. Tiny knitted shoes, a favorite childhood story book, special heirloom knitted blanket... The bestprops are the ones that have a special meaning to you.
*Try cute and different ideas. Pinterest is amazing for inspiring your creativity, and I always have ideas so never be afraid to ask for help. Hobby Lobby and Michaels typically have adorable banners that you can announce a gender or that you're expecting with, along with cute cut-out chalkboards, and many other neat things.
