LJ Reyes had her first maternity shoot, which was taken and conceptualized by Nice Print Photography, last December 13 at The Forest Barn in Alfonso, Cavite. Moms & Babies asked her how to get those IG-worthy maternity shots that trended on social media and she shared these three easy tips:
When should be a good time to shoot?
Well, I think 3rd trimester is the best time when your belly has fully grown. I had to wait for mine to grow a little bigger but it would always depend on when the mother is comfortable too!
How did you prepare for this shoot?
We just had to show up there! Nice Print made it easy for us. Pao (Paolo Contis) made me rest the day prior, so I won’t get tired of the travel considering the holiday traffic we faced. I was in good hands with my glam team, Rick Calderon and John Paul Dizon!
Can you share tips for other pregnant moms if they want to have a maternity shoot?
I think you have to make it your own, and make it as memorable for you. It doesn’t have to be unique and grand. It just has to express how happy and excited you are for the coming of your new bundle of joy! Also make sure that it’s safe for you. It’s tiring enough to do a whole day of shoot, what more now that you’re pregnant?
