Ashley’s Favorite Shops
Houston Maternity Photography
Why buy a gown you will probably never wear again when you could rent a dress for your maternity session? To own one of these pieces, you could easily invest several hundred dollars on their handmade, unique gowns. Renting is where it’s at! You get a stunning piece of artwork to wear, delivered right to your door! Once you are done being a stunning goddess, you just mail it back.
Before you rent a dress…
Questions to ask before renting
Make sure the dress you want is available during the week of your session.
Make sure to confirm sizing and fit.
Ask for a contract.
Ask if the dress requires a slip under it.
Find out their COVID and cleaning policies.
Take pictures of the dress upon opening your package- note any image and contact the seller immediately.
How is their communication?
Reclamation– You could spend a lot very quickly on maternity clothing or a unique gown, but I love that this company offers the option to rent. Very affordable, unique and stunning with so many options to pick from.
The Traveling Dress- I love the variety this shop offers, and I have personally rented from them before with amazing results! My clients have been happy using the traveling dress for a quick gown that you can easily return.
Wild + Styled– I have personally worked with this vendor as well and been thrilled with her communication and the quality of the gowns. She is always adding more and shares the results of other photographers results on her instagram.
Flutter Dress– She has a great Facebook group as well as instagram to show you the dresses she has. Most she makes herself and they are very unique!
ZeBuBaby– Check out the beautiful traveling pieces they offer- unique boho pieces.
If you are looking for a little inspiration, or if gowns are not your thing, take a look at these two cuties. They styled their session to be casual, comfortable and sexy.
