Move over, baby photo albums, there’s a new showstopper in town. Gone are the days expectant mothers would have to prepare only for their child, only focusing on health and planning for the future… MIllennial mothers today are all about shining in that spotlight! From on-fleek maternity wear to knowing the ins and outs of their bump, pregnancy is about milking each moment of that journey.
Not one to hide in the corner, millennial mothers are proudly documenting their journeys, with sass and pride. Wondering how to get your Grid to look that good? Here are a few tips…
Step One : Planning That Pregnancy Announcement
Congratulations! Welcome to your pregnancy journey. Wondering just how to announce it to the world?
The pregnancy announcement is one of the most important steps used to define how your Insta will grow. Whether you’re cutesy or bold, nerdy or chic, zone into your look & amp it up. We’d suggest roping in your partner for this one to set the tone.
Pick a theme that’s close to you - it could be a series, such as Star Wars or Harry Potter. Or the both of you are animal lovers - how about a little penguin-inspired shoot? Everything about the announcement shoot needs to be larger than life so don’t feel shy in going all out!
Step Two : Pick Your Topic
Is your Instagram about maternity style or pregnancy cravings or prenatal yoga? Pick a topic that feels closest to your heart - it could also just be you talking about the changes that your pregnancy body is going through - and go at it!
Subtle choices such as being consistent about the colours used in your feed, post timings, and hashtags make your Insta a whole lot more interesting. Not only will you be showcasing pregnancy in a fun light, this would help you connect to other millennial mothers-to-be and help you in forming a community!
Step Three : Baby Makes Three!
Round out your pregnant Insta feed the best way how - with exclusive photos of your newborn! Newborn photo styling is very much the thing to do, leaving you with amazingly well-shot images, perfect for posterity (just right for showing off when your baby’s friends come home!)
Whether you go down the professional route or just continue from the theme that was in your pregnancy announcement, this is a memory that you & your followers will cherish.
Next step : onwards to Baby Couture!
