What men should wear for a pregnancy shoot

What should my husband wear?

  • Men should bring jeans or khaki pants or any other dark bottoms
  • I encourage rumpled (not starched), plain white shirts
  • Throw a regular, WHITE and/or BLACK crew-neck t-shirt in the bag, too.
  • Bring solid, dark colors like black, dark brown, navy blue and charcoal gray tops and bottoms. Layers are great; wear the t-shirt under a crew- or v-neck sweater or jacket.

What else should I bring to my photo shoot?

  • Bring large or small props that have meaning. Bring stuffed animals, building blocks, flowers...
  • Unusual items: saris, native fabrics, wedding veils

What does the photographer provide?

  • White and gold drapery
  • A big, white sheet

What beauty preparation should I consider?

  • Get a manicure and a pedicure a day or two in advance
  • Wear makeup! If you don't choose a package that includes makeup, you'll get the best results if you visit a makeup center prior to your shoot. Call to talk about these options.
  • Don't wear anything binding to the shoot to avoid marks on your skin. This includes bras with underwires, ribbed socks and hair bands on your wrist.
