I had the honor of working with talented photographer Jessica Kaylene for my first maternity shoot! She is an Orange County photographer who specializes family, maternity and engagement photography. We shot in Laguna Beach just outside the Montage Resort and I couldn’t have been happier with the way they turned out. Be sure to check out her blog here.
I had trouble finding maternity dresses that I loved, so I decided to get a little crafty. I found this long pink dress at Forever XXI that I thought would be perfect for the maternity shoot, but it just needed a few alterations first. I slit the lace all the way up the center of the dress for a peek a boo belly and I added a layer of patterned lace I bought at Jo~ann’s to add a little texture. The sleeves were too long, so I brought them up an inch on each side. Voila! A maternity dress for under $40.
I found some really cute maternity dresses that would be great for a maternity photoshoot and they are really affordable!
