This is the post to recreate for couples that don’t want to think too much about the drama and simply want to share their good news!
Looking for an excuse to get all dolled up? You can D.I.Y. a maternity shoot in the comfort of your own home to come up with stunning shots like Andi Eigenmann’s. Opt for fresh and natural make-up and pair it with that dress in your closet that you’ve been saving for a special occasion. You can probably make this happen without any professional help, but you should warn your partner (a.k.a. cameraman) that it will take a lot of tries and patience before you get that money shot worthy of the ‘gram!
With a bun on her head and a bun in the oven, Sheena Halili was positively glowing in her series of photos featuring the baby bump. The minimalist shoot, set in a cozy corner of her home, looked so fresh and fluid. Layering accent pieces into the foreground can easily add character to the photos without taking the attention away from the main message. Not to mention, moms and non-moms alike are sure to admire how she made a sports bra and sweats look this good!
When it came to the announcement of her sixth pregnancy, Joy Sotto made sure she was not any less grateful and excited for the new blessing. A play on words on Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’s movie poster, the post included the entire Sotto family dressed in white and a baby carriage for their newest addition. Extra moms who have a little time on their hands can make their announcements unique by remaking a popular movie scene or adding a fun pun to the post!
