The Celeb Guide to … Taking a Stunning Maternity Photo
STICK TO ONE THEME
Bow down! Cardi B preferred an all-flower backdrop for her very first maternity shoot ahead of daughter Kulture's arrival. The rapper used this photo to announce that her and husband Offset's baby girl had finally made her world wide debut.
Forget about a pregnancy glow — this mama glitters! For her second maternity shoot, Meghan King Edmonds' baby bump literally sparkled, as the former Real Housewives of Orange County star posed in a bathtub covered in sparkly confetti. "It was everywhere!" King Edmonds recalled. "I'm still finding glitter in my underwear."
BRING ALONG YOUR SISTER
For Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner's joint maternity shoot, the famous sisters bared their bumps while wearing cropped sweaters and underwear.
PACK ON THE FLOWER POWER
Kirsten Dunst confirmed her pregnancy with a magical flower-adorned shoot for a Rodarte campaign. How's that for epic?
BRING ATTENTION TO YOUR BABY BUMP
Naturi Naughton opted for butterfly hair accessories, a bright orange backdrop and matching body paint. "I think the photo shoot captured that love and the love inside of me," the Power star told Essence.
SLIP INTO YOUR TRUSTY DENIM
A denim-clad Ciara debuted her bare baby bump for a series of sultry shots on HarpersBazaar.com — and subsequently upped the pregnancy photo shoot game.
KEEP IT CLASSIC
Cheryl, who welcomed her first child, son Bear, in March 2017 with former One Direction member Liam Payne, chose to show off her pregnancy curves for the first time officially in a photo shoot for L'Oréal and The Prince's Trust.
MAKE A REALLY BIG DEAL OUT OF IT
INCLUDE YOUR LITTLE ONE
Dressed in a flowing dress while cradling her baby bump, Pink posed for an ethereal photo shoot with her pint-sized style twin, daughter Willow.
TAKE A QUICK DIP
If you prefer going for a swim over sunbathing, consider Alanis Morissette's photo shoot idea. The Canadian singer, who was expecting daughter Onyx at the time of this pic, posed underwater and looked as serene as ever.
"You have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world 'cause they make persons," read the singer's caption — an adorable quote the then-expectant mom-of-two attributed to her son Ever Imre.
