As a new mom, navigating the wardrobe waters a few weeks postpartum can be a bit of a challenge. Your body’s gone through some incredible changes, after all, and it’s in recovery mode from the miracle of growing a tiny human!

Opt for soft, flowy fabrics that won’t chafe, pinch, or leave you feeling uncomfortable. That’s why maxi dresses are like the MVPs of newborn photo attire. Not only are they super comfy, but they also look downright dreamy and do wonders to flatter your postpartum bod.

Long, flowing maxi dresses effortlessly elevate your photo style, comfort, and personality. Whether you have a summer baby or baby is due in the chilly winter months a dress can work! Choose a breezy summer style or add a cozy long sleeve sweater-and-skirt combos, the options are endless!

When picking out your dress, aim for ones with a defined waistline or an empire cut—they work wonders to accentuate your figure in all the right places. Steer clear of straight-cut dresses that lack shape, as they can make you appear larger than life (and let’s be real, no new mom needs that).

Now, if dresses aren’t really your jam, fear not! You can still rock your newborn photo session in a comfy jeans-and-tee ensemble. Just make sure those jeans have a forgiving elastic waistband or go for a looser fit to keep things comfy as you move and groove with your little one. And opt for flowy, relaxed tops like sweaters or loose blouses—they’re way more flattering than their clingy counterparts.

Above all else, remember that these photos are all about YOU and your family—not about impressing me as the photographer, not about keeping up with Pinterest perfection, and definitely not about pleasing the masses on the interwebs. Wear what makes you feel like the beautiful, confident mama you are. If maxi dresses aren’t your vibe, don’t force it!
