Maternity sashes & belly bouquets

I stumbled upon a new trend in maternity photography recently while looking for newborn photo props on Etsy. Check out my latest Babble post, where I round up 15 Belly Bouquets to Adorn your Bump!

What do you think about these maternity sashes, are the cute, or tacky?

    I wouldn’t call them tacky, but I will admit that I just don’t get it? It seems like a strange prop. I’ve seen loads of maternity & baby photos taken with fresh flowers (or fakes made to look like fresh), but nothing about those looks natural or real, so it makes me wonder why people like them. It’s not something I’d choose, but to each their own I suppose.

    Hi there,
    Well, I took a look at all of them. While the bouquets are really cute on the baby picture and they may even be a great prop for a belly photo, I wouldn’t wear one around just for fashion. (even if I could)
    Nope. No way, Uh-uh.

    The bouquet—really nice and is very cute on the baby photo, but I really don’t find it as a nice prop to use for a belly. I personally wouldn’t consider it.

    I think these are great, they are classy and beautiful! They are PERFECT belly props because they can let a mom show her belly, with a little modesty and maybe make her feel a little more comfortable so she has a beautiful photo to cherish, not all women are comfortable in that stage, I think this gives them a little something to help with that. Being able to use it as a prop on a child, is just a bonus!
