Pregnancy is a very unique and special time in a woman’s life. Of course, there are moments you feel uncomfortable, but it is time to cherish. Your maternity session should highlight those unique feelings with the right outfit. Below I have listed a few places to find maternity dresses for your maternity photo session.

Budget Maternity Dresses

Target is a great place for maternity dresses. Not only is Target affordable, but they often have a variety of styles and prices. Maxi dresses are always a good choice as they highlight your bump well while making you feel comfortable. Target usually has many maxi dress styles.

 

High-End Maternity Dresses

Looking for a dress or clothing that’s fancier for your photoshoot? Macy’s and Nordstroms both have designer fashion for maternity wear. From brands like 7 For All Mankind to Spanx, you can be super fashionable and comfortable for your photo shoot.

 

Boutique Maternity Dresses

A boutique for maternity clothes is a pretty hard find, but if you want a unique experience or make your photoshoot an even more memorable experience, head to Mom’s the Word: Bump and Beyond in San Francisco. They boast that their maternity clothes can be worn past pregnancy because they carry practical styles that fit during and after pregnancy. How cool is that?

 

Online Maternity Dress Shopping

Motherhood Maternity is both an online store and can often be found in malls under the name Pea in the Pod. It has a wide selection of clothing and prices. If you sign up for their email list, they frequently send out coupons. The clothes are very fashion-forward, and they offer a wide selection of styles. Another great online shop for pregnancy wear is Balticborn.com. They have beautiful bump-friendly dresses for under $100.
