Our Favorite Stores to Buy Maternity Dresses for Photoshoots
Congratulations, this is such a special and exciting time in your lives! We’re always humbled when our past wedding clients ask us to photograph this huge milestone in their marriage. Because of that, we created this list of our favorite stores to buy maternity dresses for photoshoots so they can feel confident and look good. Remember: There is no such thing as “too dressed up” when it comes to your maternity shoot. And don’t forget to look for what we like to all the *dress trifecta* at the bottom of this post. We usually recommend maternity photos around 28-36 weeks. This is usually around the time when you’re comfortable enough to walk and your belly has a nice round shape. Lastly, most of these shops on the list below have exclusive memberships or perks programs so you can continue to shop with them throughout your pregnancy.
Tiffany Rose Maternity is our go-to recommendation for maternity dresses for photoshoots. They specialize in dresses that look amazing on camera and add an extra element of movement to the images that we love. Their website is set up in an easy-to-use way separated into sections like day wear, evening wear, bridal, and a special section for new arrivals. Whether you’re planning a maternity session with us, or are looking for a stylish piece to add to your closet while pregnant, Tiffany Rose will not disappoint.
Shop Our Favorite Amazon Maternity Dresses for Photoshoots
Pink Blush Maternity has a wide selection of clothing available for expecting couples that will look great on camera. We normally suggest wearing a dress because it will emphasize the bump and this store has a lot of dresses with cute floral patterns and beautiful blush tones. However, Pink Blush Maternity also has a large selection of tops, bottoms, and jeans if you’d rather wear something other than a dress to your maternity shoot.
Mother Bee Maternity has some beautiful solid color wrap and floor-length dresses. These types of dresses are perfect for maternity sessions. The solid tones look incredible on camera because there aren’t any bold patterns or other distractions on the clothing. This keeps the viewer’s eyes on your glowing faces and the cute bump you’re showing off. They have a great selection of date night type dresses for maternity photoshoots.

Hatch Collection has a plethora of unique and in-style dresses for you to choose from. The majority of their dresses are soft pastels or light in color, perfect for California! They also have a mix of patterned and solid-colored dresses so you’ll be able to find something you like and will feel confident in, ready for your maternity session!

Amazon Personal Shopper for Maternity Dresses for Photoshoots
Of course, Amazon is going to be on this list! When in doubt, or if we can’t find anything local, Amazon is our go-to place to shop. They also have a personal shopper program through Prime Wardrobe that is an awesome resource if you’re constantly on the go or looking for an easier way to look good. A personal shopper can drastically boost your confidence level and it’s not as expensive as you’re probably thinking. This program works best on your mobile phone so if you do sign up, that’s what we’d suggest you do. Either way, we’d absolutely recommend giving it a try!
Our Dress Trifecta
If you’re still shopping around we’d encourage you to look for our dress trifecta – as we like to call it. We always recommend dresses and skirts that are long, flowy (because they look amazing in the wind), and for the top to have a 3/4 length sleeve. It’s not an easy search, but we always find it to be the most flattering in photos! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let us know. We’d love to help in any way we can!
