5 Creative Baby Photoshoot Ideas

Did you know there are 385,000 babies born each day?

Of course, every baby is wonderfully unique — including yours! One of the best ways to celebrate your new arrival is by hiring a professional photographer to snap baby pictures.

The question is: What should you include in your baby photoshoot? Keep reading for some clever baby photoshoot ideas you may not have considered yet.

  1. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Your baby is beautiful from every angle, so why not capture more than one angle on film?

During your photoshoot, ask the photographer to position your baby in front of a mirror. Not only will you capture their adorable face from different angles, but you might also capture their funny or surprised reaction at seeing themselves.

  1. Baby Basket Case

This is a classic pose for a newborn photoshoot, but it’s on our list because it’s so darn cute! We don’t know exactly why babies and baskets go so well together, but this pose belongs on your “essentials” list.

Pick an appropriate-sized basket for your baby and line it with something soft, like a pillow or their favourite blanket. Then stand back and see what they do! Whether they play, giggle, or fall asleep, you’re sure to get amazing photos.

  1. Superhero Babies

Do you adore superhero movies and comics? Why not make your baby the star of their own superhero photoshoot?

You could choose a classic character like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, or Catwoman. Or maybe you’re a fan of newer characters like the Avengers, Jack Sparrow, or Harry Potter.

It’s easy to find baby costumes for all your favourite characters, so go on a shopping spree before the photoshoot. You could also bring some props like action figures, comic books, or other toys to help frame the shot.

  1. Best Buds

Does your dog or cat keep a watchful vigil over your newborn? No doubt they’ll grow up to become best pals, so why not celebrate their friendship from the start?

Ask your photographer to take classic portrait shots of your baby with their furry best friend. Then you can add some fun matching outfits or props, i.e., listening to music with matching headphones.

  1. The Fairy Baby

Want to make your baby look like they were transported into a fairy tale? All you’ll need is some greenery, some soft lighting, and a few key props.

Order a set of baby “wings” along with a baby-sized tiara or flowered headband. For added effect, pick up a tutu or a spool of tulle to surround your baby. Surround your baby with flowers and plants or, even better, photograph them in your garden or backyard.
