For the past 2 months, the most frequent request I get is to do Maternity, so I called on my stunning cousin Shelly who is due in 2 weeks! Shelly and her husband Joe are expecting a baby girl (yay!), but they wouldn’t reveal the name they came up with! They are, however, still picking her middle name so if you have suggestions, write in the comment box below! We are all so happy for Shelly and can’t wait for this precious baby to meet the world.
We shot a series of 4 outfits which you will see over the course of the next couple weeks. Styling Shelly may have been the easiest session I’ve ever had! Who knew dressing a pregnant model would be easier than dressing my other models. This outfit is one of my favorites, because it’s not what you typically see in Maternity wear. I found the top in the plus-size section of Target. I loved the print and felt the style looked a little cooler than some of the prints I had seen prior in the Maternity section. The talented photographer behind these photos who also happens to be my cousin and a Penny model ended up taking the top because she loved it so much! The shorts are Maternity and have that stretch top connected that goes over the tummy. The denim has a great wash and cut. It works with the funkiness of the top.
What kind of outfits would you wear if you were pregnant?
