So many of the maternity pictures you see scrolling through Facebook or Instagram have the same kind of vibe: carefully planned outfits, soft lighting, and lovey dovey looks between the pregnant mama and her partner. And there's a good reason those sort of shots are so popular: they're totally gorgeous. But when you're pregnant around a holiday like Halloween, you get the chance to take the kind of pics that are anything but ordinary. There are lots of Halloween-themed maternity shoot ideas that are fun, gorgeous, and totally memorable.
A Halloween photoshoot doesn't necessarily have to be silly or scary. Believe it or not, you can still nail a totally chic maternity photo in a dramatic gown, or get the perfect sweet shot with a Halloween-themed painting on your belly. You can go full on-costume if you want to in a spooky session — witches, zombies, and skeletons are all totally on-theme. Or you might rely on the decor to set the tone for your photo shoot, with gorgeous fall foliage and plenty of pumpkins. You can even take the kind of picture that looks like it belongs on a horror movie poster.
