For the Pregnant Fairies

So this is less of a fashion post and more of a pregnancy shoot post (with a little bit of fashion thrown in of course).

To all the pregnant fairies...
I highly recommend doing a shoot while you are carrying. It is wonderful to have as a memory and for some ladies it might be your only pregnancy so take all the pics you want to and definitely plan at least one preggie shoot. You won't regret it!

If you are going for a very feminine look that will most likely be shot in nature like this shoot that I did; I recommend a long flowy dress. These types of dresses in general are great for pregnancy (if it's summer) and for a photo shoot it really just does the trick.

I always like to add a waist-belt with these types of dresses, whether you are pregnant or not, otherwise it can make you look shapeless and bigger than you actually are.

So go ahead, tap into your pregnancy glow -there's nothing wrong with feeling beautiful for the day!

This shoot was done when I was 27 weeks pregnant. My beautiful photographer happened to be pregnant as well, our babies due dates are only 2 days apart. For bookings and more of her work you can have a look at her website www.michellefaber.co.za or her Facebook Page Michelle Faber .
