If you’ve already gone ahead and scheduled a maternity photoshoot for yourself and now need a maternity photoshoot dress, that is SO exciting! A maternity photo session is a wonderful way to celebrate your pregnancy and your amazing body that’s creating and carrying life (!!!). After you find out about your bundle of joy with a positive pregnancy test, you prepare your nursery, your registry (because diapers and pregnancy pillows are a must), plan a baby shower, and after booking your session — find the perfect maternity dresses for pictures. Luckily, there’s no shortage of maternity photo dresses out there—and most of them are straight-up gorgeous.

When it comes to shopping for maternity dresses for photoshoots, it’s important to keep in mind a few things to make sure that the dress will be everything you hope it will be in more when you get those digital files in your inbox. The first is that the maternity dress or maternity gown (whichever you choose) should be comfortable. If you can’t move around freely in this dress, it will surely show in those photos. Also, being pregnant is uncomfortable enough—you don’t have to slide into an ill-fitting dress that leaves you itching or, worse, having difficulty breathing, all in the name of photos.

You should also choose a maternity photo dress that you really love—like really love—and can even wear post-pregnancy. This photoshoot is your way of celebrating both your pregnancy and your baby. If you’re going to spend the money for a photo shoot, you might as well really love the outfit you’re wearing.

Here are some of our favorite maternity photoshoot dresses you can have delivered right to your door.
