DIY pregnancy photo series ideas

Apr 6, 2012

I really really love it when people create photo series to capture their pregnancy. I feel like every time i look around i see an even cuter idea for a pregnancy photoshoot!

Are you as obsessed with Pinterest as i am?? I started a little DIYMaternity pin board a while ago to start compiling cool maternity related stuff i find on the web – and started realising how many photo series i was pinning. Then I realised that there are some really awesome ideas there for DIY pregnancy photoshoots! Here are some of favourite maternity photo series from the interwebs:

 

My very very very favourite is Miranda, with her AMAZING maternity calendar tshirt. I want to copy this idea like no-bodies business! You should honestly check out the whole series here – and maybe recreate it yourself by making your own shirt, or purchasing one of the ones she sells.

I just adore my dear friend Jen‘s photo series (more detail shots here). I feel like it’s such a personal one – and the photography by her husband Kev is simply stunning. And now that their daughter is a toddler they got those pictures made into a gorgeous photobook.

This series from Pacing the Panic room is also just rad. Seriously, coolest pregnant girl ever right?? I love how she included a little letter to baby in each picture – what a wonderful memory!

Oh yeah, this is another by Miranda – but it’s so awesome i had to share. She took all the outtakes from her Project Baby calendar shirt project, and made this precious video. I just LOVE it! Watch it, you will cry – i know i did :)

I love the simplicity of this series – i think it’s great because there are no distractions just a nice plain backdrop so you can see the belly grow each week. Its a lot like what I did when i was pregnant with my kids!!

Another great one showing the growth of the baby bump. I’m really drawn to how pretty it is – but once again it’s also really great documentation because the backdrop and outfit stay the same each time. Click through to see the full series of photos.

This one by Peanut Gallery is also totally cool – I really love how she is in the same position in each picture so you can see the bump grow, but she also gives some cute stats on where she is at each week. It’s gorgeous!

Also so in love with this food pregnancy series. Each week she took a photo with a food that was the same size as her baby. I think it’s so unusual and fun, and shows such an awesome sense of humour!! You can see all the photos here.

And I think i’m gonna end with this amazing one by the Kissing Tree. Another super cool momma who I totally want to be. Seriously, that hair? she is too cool. See the rest of the weeks here.

So what about you? Do you think you’ll do a pregnancy photo series??

  • Love this post!! I wish I’d been able to read it before I started my maternity series, buut I’m glad I’ve done what I have which is to write a note to the baby with every outfit post I’ve done each week!

  • I love these and wish I had seen them before I started my series. I used a chalkboard and wrote notes/thoughts/sizes/activities for each week.
