Maternity Photos & Silhouette Belly Shots
Thu, 08-09-2012 - 9:44am

Everyone loves a beautiful pregnancy photograph, but the image to capture for mamas-to-be in 2012 is the silhouette belly shot. Vanessa (Minnillo) Lachey recently tweeted a stunning one of herself (taken by husband Nick Lachey), but this style of pic has been trending on Pinterest all year. Want to take one yourself? You don't need a celeb body (or a pool overlooking the ocean). Just wear a body-hugging outfit and position yourself so the setting sun is behind you. Added bonus: silhouettes hide any additional bumps, bulges or blemishes that have come along with your pregnancy.

Beautiful idea for a belly shot!  Anyone planning to have maternity photos taken before baby arrives?  Will you try the silhouette shot?
