20 ideas to DIY natural maternity photoshoot at home

Hello, mommy’s to be!

Want to do a natural maternity photoshoot at home, but you’re not sure how? So, maybe this post can help! We have already written a post for moms who are looking for a more romantic and feminine style for their photos. This post is for moms who are in the mood for a natural look and feel in their photos and also for sustainable moms!


The secrets to achieving a natural mood

Natural daylight (no flashes), clean background

Greys, Neutrals and greens clothes, decor

Natural materials (clothes l decor l accessories)


I’m writing this post in a delicate moment: The world is in quarantine, and for that reason, moms can risk going to a studio to have a photoshoot. So this is my attempt to help moms make natural, beautiful and memorable maternity photoshoot even without going to photo studios!

Get The Look: at the end of each photo, we put similar looks available on Amazon for you to choose! Similar, no identical to the original photos, after all, where is the fun in taking a photo that is exactly the same as someone else? Add your touch of authenticity 🙂


🍃 IMPORTANT: Some products that we suggest in this post are NOT made of sustainable materials, they are just cheaper alternatives to achieve the look and feel of the photo. But, if you are a sustainable mom, we also suggest 100% natural products, made of linen and organic cotton, for example. Those are more expensive and you will know which ones they are reading the subtitles.


Profile to focus on the belly

Can you see that most moms in these photos don’t even show their faces? Cover part of your face and take a profile photo, you can focus more ore less on the belly, your main friend for this photoshoot are the natural light and the linen or cotton outfit.

Mirror Selfie

Although this is quite simple, I decided to put it here. It can also result in beautiful natural photos if done with the right composition. Natural wood colors, a clean mirror, a boho carpet, and natural decor elements and accessories, like pillows, chairs, and hats will set the perfect scenario for a pretty natural maternity photoshoot alone.

Next to the crib

This one, even though is very simple, can be put in the photo album! Having a pregnant photo next to your baby’s future home is iconic and special. Below we recommend non-toxic cribs and modern Scandinavian cribs.

From the top

minimalism, neutral colors for the background and for the outfit, some future baby objects and a soft filter from your favorite photo editing app, like VSCO, and you can achieve results like the ones below. Ah, you also need someone to stand on their feet over you and take the picture.

Frontal, Close on the belly or holding something

Very similar to the first option, but now frontal and usually with a hand under your belly and the other one holding something meaningful for you at this moment, or both hands around the belly.

Natural mood asks for natural poses

Just lay comfortably somewhere in your house…of course, this will be a posed photo, but you can relax and laugh and make it look more natural. Smiling and happy photos are important, but I also love the transparency of the second photo. She was 40 weeks pregnant, already exhausted, and expressed the feeling of the moment in the photo. Recording everything you feel in this very special phase honestly – even the bad emotions that we all know are real – brings an extra natural feeling to the mood of the photo. In addition to, of course, the clothes, the greens, and natural scenery matching. And as the first photo shows, you don’t need much: a macrame decor item, a natural basket, and a chair was enough for a beautiful and natural photo.

Indoors but Outdoors


You don’t want to or can’t (if you’re reading this post during the 2020 quarantine) leave the house, but you may have a beautiful yard. Value this space to give some variety to the photos and adding real natural elements from your garden to it.

Just be You

The title says it all: be yourself. All the photos here are just standing, looking slightly to the side, with some element of nature around or with a smooth background and flowing hair. The last one is my favorite, without any filter, since the natural sunlight already makes all the photo editing work, and she is just there enjoying the moment.
