13 Amazing Newborn Photo Ideas
Looking for ideas for baby’s first photo session? Recreate these creative and sentimental newborn shots.
In the Palm of Your Hand
Forget about all the bells and whistles — sometimes, you don’t need them. Something basic, plain and neutral works just as well, if not better!
This sweet, candid shot is a beautiful reminder of baby’s first (sleepy) weeks.
Baby With a Keepsake
You know all those personalized gifts you’re getting? They make meaningful props.
Who’s snug as a bug in a rug? Uh, this baby is! (And looking adorable, to boot.)
The Sibling Shot
Don’t forget to shoot baby with her big sister or brother. We love that, in this shot, baby’s big sister is supporting her — and they’re both wide-eyed for the camera!
Baby in a Basket
We know you’d never let baby sleep in just any wicker basket, but admit it, baby does look pretty cute here!
Dad and Baby
Have daddy pose with baby in his hands — isn’t this shot powerful? Also, we’re loving the gorgeous natural light in this photo!
Get some close-ups of baby’s cutest features. We’re loving the focus on baby’s teeny, tiny fingers here. It’s so simple yet classic!
If baby was born in winter, add some mittens, a hat and maybe even some fake snow to your shoot. For the spring? A pretty floral hair bow. Accessories help set the scene.
These little piggies are a sweet way to show off your newest addition!
Baby’s newborn photo shoot is the perfect opportunity to put him in a ridiculous-yet-adorable outfit.
Mom and Baby
Don’t forget to capture some pictures of you and baby, mama! Years (and even months!) from now, you’ll be glad you had these sweet shots taken with your quickly changing baby!
