maternity portrait with pregnant belly in fabric stretched tightly taken in maine photography studio


We use textured fabrics like this tube dress to showcase your pregnant belly without showing skin, or having to buy specific maternity clothing.  The ribbed texture of this cotton really catches the light.

Tattoo You

This toned image still maintains enough of its original color to clearly see the tiger tattoos on the mother’s skin.  The skirt is a fabric from our studio wrapped and tied, and no special maternity clothing was needed!

Penny is an adorable companion who couldn’t be kept out of this maternity photo shoot!


Unbreakable Chain

hands intertwine across pregnant belly in black and white maternity photo taken in maine photography studio

Some of our favorite maternity pictures don’t show faces or feet – they’re framed completely around the belly.  This is a great example of a couples’ portrait taken with just hands, arms, and belly showing.

This image benefits from the directional lighting we use with our black and white fine-art images – the chain of hands and fingers is far more ordinary when flat-lit.

If you want your maternity portraits to be pieces of art, and not simply snapshots, we’d love to tell you about our pregnancy photo shoots!

Maternity Gown

This is one of the maternity gowns that we have at our photography studio for pregnant clients that want to show off their bump without showing as much skin.


maternity picture of pregnant woman reflected in water taken in maine photography studio


This is a reflection image shot in our studio on a blacked out set.  The lights on either side of the subject highlight her pregnant belly, and the shadowing on the part of her body closest to the camera give the photo visual interest.

This is obviously a maternity picture that shows a little more skin than some of the others, and beautifully displays Deanna’s pregnancy, as she gained very little body fat, and had a perfect belly bump.
