    17. Take it lying down


    Maternity Photography Ideas: frame her lying down

    To make pregnancy photos work with the subject on their back, the mum-to-be needs quite a big bump. In this shot I used the mother’s hands to frame the bump.

    If the bump seems quite small you can place a small pillow under the subjects back out of shot and have the legs leaning slightly to the right to raise the bump up higher.

    Remember do not ask the subject to look back at the camera, as this will cause creases in her forehead. If you want to get her eyes looking into the camera, move to the right.
