Can you believe we’re at the age where we have to think of ways to announce pregnancies? Luckily, we have these stylish celebrities to get inspiration from.
It’s mind-blowing to have a baby growing inside your belly, at least we can only imagine. So many changes, anticipation, and excitement going on in your life that you can’t help but want to document every single second, especially in this day and age of by-the-split-second interim. As the baby bump grows, the more you long to capture the beauty of your pregnancy. After all, there’s nothing more pure than a memory of this blessing.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to show your followers the baby bump—it’s only a matter of how you do it. To capture the best parts of you, here are some ideas from celebrities who recently had a maternity shoot.
All you need is a great photographer, good lighting, and a body-hugging outfit to make a perfect maternity shoot. Do it like Martine Ho, who simply rocked a bright-orange one-piece with a plain white background to announce her pregnancy. “I knew these hips would come in handy one day,” she wrote on an Instagram post.
For Anne Curtis’ birthday, she posted a series of breathtaking pictures, bare naked, and her baby bump at its biggest. Sitting against beautiful renaissance paintings and photographed by her good friend, BJ Pascual, this is how you and your bump become the stars of the photo shoot. “Not too long till my little girl meets the outside world and she will be the best gift I have ever received in my life,” Anne says on the Instagram post.
There’s nothing more dramatic than a gigantic hat to match your huge baby bump. Solenn’s maternity shoot was inspired by Frida Kahlo to show that she can endure anything that comes her way. We know pregnancy is hard; it comes with pain and sacrifices, but this shoot captured the beautiful side of it all. Wearing a Sombrero from Oaxaca in one layout to a colorful flowy skirt and Frida Kahlo-inspired makeup on the other, Solenn was ready to paint her life in color as soon as Baby Bolz came into the universe.
Georgina Wilson exudes sophistication and class, even if she’s wearing nothing but a snakeskin trench coat. For her pregnancy with Alfred Thor, her second son, Georgina bared all as she rocked her best feature—her smile, in this maternity shoot.
Like an image straight from a daydream, Kylie Padilla’s maternity shoot was enchanting in all forms. Perhaps this was an ode to her Sang’gre Amihan days in Encantadia? The set design tells a fairytale while her long tulle dress makes her look like a queen, expecting the next prince to reign the kingdom.
Mariel Padilla looked stunning in black and white. With a long Taffeta-like fabric to cover and hug her body, Mariel’s maternity shoot for baby Gabriela is something you can easily do yourself.
