With the rising prices of goods and services, some moms-to-be feel might feel like having a maternity photoshoot is a luxury. After all, you need to hire a reputable photographer and hair and makeup artist, buy clothes, and think of pegs.
Indeed, if there's a will, there's a way.
Soon-to-be mom Rita Daniela shared snaps of her maternity shoot photos, and netizens say that she looked as fresh and gorgeous as ever.
Turns out, Rita is not just an amazing artist, but also a talented makeup artist. Rita proudly wrote in the shoot credits that she took care of her makeup during the shoot.

7 celebrity maternity shoots we love in 2022
If you are also planning to have a maternity shoot soon, here are some pegs and themes that you can follow from celebrity moms this year.
1. Winwyn Marquez
Winwyn looked like an angel in her ethereal-themed maternity photoshoot, she wore a sheer, flowy dress and struck sweet and powerful poses.
Tip: If you feel uncomfortable or awkward in posing for the camera, you can start looking for photos online of poses that you feel you can achieve, then practice them ahead of the shoot.
2. Dimples Romana
Pregnancy glow is real and legit, and like Rita, you don't have to put much effort into your appearance because you already look amazing as it is.
We love mom of three Dimples' four concepts for her maternity shoots, which you can also try for yourself: earth, air, wind, and fire.
Tip: If you can pull off an underwater shoot, take it! Just make sure to follow safety precautions.
3. Jessy Mendiola
Jessy held her maternity shoot in a five-star hotel in Manila. She wrote in her vlog, "I love my big bump and I cannot lie. Baby peanut is growing fast and I can’t wait to meet her, and hold her in my arms. For now, awra-awra muna si mommy ha," she said.
Tip: Finding an area with good lighting is important during the shoot. You don't have to spend a lot for a studio or out-of-town location. Just have a solid concept, use appropriate props, like Jessy's bouquet and the tub filled with roses.
4. Kryz Uy
For her second pregnancy, Kryz shared that she felt really good during her maternity shoot. Like how she did when she was pregnant with her firstborn Scottie, the Cebu-based content creator opted to have the whole set-up in the comforts of their own home.
Tip: Yes, mommy. If you are on a budget, you can have your maternity shoot at home, and it will still look fabulous. Good lighting and a good camera will be the key.
5. Solenn Heussaff
Tip: Your body on its own is a masterpiece. In a few weeks or months, your bump will be back to normal, so go wild with your poses like Solenn. Also, make sure you have the best glam team - they don't have to be the best or the greatest in the industry, but they could be a group of people with whom you feel most comfortable working with.
6. Angelica Panganiban
Angelica looked nothing but the goddess of the sea in her maternity shoot. Before Little Amila came out, her mom did a very daring shoot in Subic.
Tip: Involve your partner not only in the photos but more importantly in the shoot itself. Angelica thanked her fiance Gregg Homan for being very supportive in her unkaboggable shoot.
7. Jennylyn Mercado
Hands down, probably one of the most iconic maternity shoots in 2022. Pregnant with their second baby Dylan, Jennylyn's photos looked straight out of Renaissance paintings. A netizen even said, 'pinakamagandang maternity photo shoot na nakita ko.'
Tip: Don't be limited by the trends that you can find in social media, but get creative and find inspiration from things that interest you.
What's important is that you enjoy this rare and precious moment, before you meet your little bundle of joy.
