Belly Photography Tips

Heather Hart of A La Mode Photo put together some tips for Belly Photography and we knew that we just had to to share her Belly Photography Tips with our readers too!

So if you're not in California and you can't get her to fly to meet your Big Belly where you live, here are some of her secrets:

1. Find a friend.
Since you are the model, you need someone who has a few hours to dedicate to you and your Belly!

2. Try using a camera with real film and not digital.
Go to a camera store and ask for professional black and white film - avoid going to the local market or drugstore for your film - there is a big difference!  Ask for 125 speed film - there is less grain. And everyone always looks so much better in black and white - try it, you may like it!

3. Wear natural make-up - a little base and accent your eyes! Since you're shooting outdoors, keep it light!

4. Choose a place outside!
A local park with trees always works nicely. Make sure that the background where you are shooting is also nice. Be careful of trash cans and other items in the background that might detract from your focus.

5. Go to a local fabric store and buy  material. Black, grey, white - any color is fine! Use this to wrap around you and make a great skirt. This will accentuate your Belly just perfectly! Bring safety pins - they will be your new best friend.

6. Pre-pregnancy t-shirts always look good and complement your arms and Belly.
Pair them with your new skirt and you will look fabulous!

7. Have Fun!
Enjoy the wonder of the Belly and have a great time photographing it!
