What to Wear: Winter Maternity Session

Maternity sessions happen during all times of the year, and they can be just as beautiful in the cold winter months as the summer months! Luckily there are adorable maternity clothes that are picture perfect for all seasons. I have put together a few ideas for all you expecting mamas out there to consider when planning for your maternity session. 

I always recommend asking friends and family who have recently had children if they have maternity clothes you could peek through, you never know what treasures you might find. My sister-in-law sent me a box of maternity clothes and I lived in a few of her items through my pregnancy, it was wonderful! 

When choosing clothes for a winter session it is better to choose form- fitting tops that hug that baby bump tightly. Consider sweaters paired with a scarf or a sweater dress with tights and boots. Maternity specific coats can also be an adorable winter option, and you can always have some photos with it on and some without it. Don’t forget including accessories, such as jewelry and scarves! - Coelle

Links to these specific items can be found below all of the looks Coelle put together, and you can click HERE for more information on how to purchase the Sutton necklace featured in the first look. You can also shop your closet for similar items! 

Items have been sourced from Motherhood Maternity (jeans, wine cords, and cardigan), Target (dress), Gap (sweater), Anthropologie (scarf), J Crew factory (second necklace).

New for 2014: Styling by Coelle

Some of you may have noticed on my website, and I've mentioned it on here as well, I am now offering styling by Coelle for all newborn sessions (also included in the newborn portion of the Belly to Baby packages) for new moms. I am so excited about this new addition, as it's extremely important to me that new moms feel super pampered and beautiful the day of their newborn session.

You met Coelle in an earlier post, and now here's a little bit more about why she feels the styling consults are important. (Note: This service may be added on to ANY session, just ask!)

"I went through the process of having a newborn session with my son one year ago, and figuring out what to wear for a photography session was a bit daunting only a few days after having a baby! I understand the importance of looking good and feeling confident the day of the session, but I also understand that this can be difficult for a brand new mom with a changing body and many other things to think about. Having someone to help go through clothing and accessory options prior to the session can save a brand new mom a lot of time and worry, and it also provides the mom with a little bit of time to focus on herself! Additionally, styling provides reassurance that the entire look of the session will come together - as I will also discuss your significant other’s clothing choices and the blankets the baby will be wrapped in. As an added bonus, stopping by and meeting with the new parents before the session will allow me the opportunity to check out lighting and locations that Jen will use the next day. I am so excited to be providing styling as I believe that it will ensure comfort and confidence the day of the session as well as helping to make your photos personal, cherished memories."

A few kind words from Aubrey about her experience working with Coelle at her recent newborn session with her son Liam. 

"It was so great to have Coelle help out with the styling of our photo session. She pointed out styling details I never would of even thought about, and made me feel comfortable with my outfit selection. Living so far from my girlfriends it was great to have another girls perspective on selecting what to wear, and she made me feel stylish at a time when I feel like I'm lacking in the looks department. Not only was she great with helping out in the styling process, but she also did an awesome job keeping my little guy calm and comfortable throughout the picture taking process. We deemed her "the baby whisperer" that day!"
