One of my favorite things about pregnancy is capturing that beautiful baby bump as it grows. I didn’t take enough bump photos with my first and I can’t wait to do it all again one day. There are so many cute ways to track your growing belly and to capture this exciting time. One of the many reasons I didn’t take many photos was because I simply didn’t “feel” like it, now looking back at the few photos I did take, I really treasure them. I now know it’s so worth setting aside some time each week, or month, to snap a few pictures to look back on. If you are needing some inspiration for your pregnancy photos look no further.
1. Same Outfit
Find a cute dress or top that is going to stretch with your growing bump and wear for your weekly photos. Make sure to use a white or neural background to really make that belly pop!

2. Fruit Comparison
If you have a pregnancy tracker app the chances are they tell you what size your baby is each week using a fruit or vegetable. It’s a cute way to really visualize your baby as they grow. I can honestly say, I got emotional every time I saw a blueberry in the beginning. I think my husband got tired of me excitingly pointing to fruit in the grocery store and stating, “thats how big she is!” So what a cute way to capture your bump week by week by including the corresponding fruit.
