        Where to buy maternity clothes in Virginia Beach, VA

        Maternity clothes can be tricky.

        When do you need them? Do you REALLY need them?

        If you’re like me, you might need two sets! I got so big I need two sets by the time I was full term. #truestory

        Tricks to for maternity clothes

        In the beginning you can finagle it – a rubber band through the button hole of your jeans, or just switching to leggings will do for a while.

        A men’s button up with a cinched belt around the waist is also very effective.

        My favorite were knit dresses that hit the knee. It got me to the third trimester when it was way too short to be appropriate.

        Maternity clothes to invest in

        You’ll wear your maternity clothes during the 4th trimester…so invest wisely! Here are the items you’ll need quality:

        • Leggings
        • Jeans
        • Versatile dress – casual or dressy
        • Light jacket
        • 2-3 quality Shirts

        You’ll find that every pregnancy is different and you’ll be drawn to different styles with each one. You may live in leggings then only wear dresses the next. Invest in versatile and classic pieces that can be worn over years, but also from early pregnancy through the several months post partum.

        Hi I’m Alison, your chaos coordinator.

        As the ringleader of my own 4 boy circus, I know how hard getting family photos can be.

        If I could dress your kids and literally hang your family photos on your walls, I would.

        …but I can’t, so I do just about everything else in between.

        That’s why I take the time to hold your hand from start to finish.

        Because what good are family photos if your kids never see them?

        Our active duty USMC family is currently stationed in Virginia Beach near Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Hampton in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I call Charleston SC home and go back as often as I can! I shoot families and weddings as travel permits. Check out more of my work in Charleston here.
