Love the Lace

Lace is a beautiful, classic addition to any baby photo. There are several different ways to incorporate lace into your photo shoot as well. You could deck your daughter out in a lace bonnet and lace dress as pictured above, or you could just opt for one or the other.

If lace clothing and bonnets don’t quite seem to fit the bill then you can incorporate lace into the backdrop instead. A soft crocheted blanket which is reminiscent of lace is the perfect way to do this.

Give the classic baby in a tutu shot a fun twist by having your photographer snap a pic when your little one is asleep. After all, it’s hard work being a model and sometimes sleepiness catches up with the best of us.

This is also a unique way to make light of what can sometimes be a stressful situation. You want your photo shoot to run flawlessly of course, but life happens, babies throw tantrums and get sleepy. So, instead of stressing about how the photos will turn out take advantage of these adorable sleepy moments as well!

Incorporate the Seasons

If you’re struggling to come up with ideas, take a note of inspiration from the seasons. No matter the season, nature is always blooming with creative suggestions.


Spring

The bright cheerfulness of spring and delightful flowers provide a perfect natural backdrop to a baby photography session.


Summer

Summer brings greenery and warmth making it the optimal time, in terms of weather, for an outdoors photo shoot with your baby. Just imagine how lovely those bright greens and vibrantly coloured flowers will look in the backdrop of your baby’s pictures.


Fall

Fall is a little more chilly than summer yet, it can still present a good opportunity for a photo shoot. Simply bundle your baby up in a dashing sweater and cosy blanket before the photo shoot takes place. This will help to keep your baby warm and create a handsome photo.


Winter

Winter is often too cold for an outdoors photo shoot with a baby. Yet you can still incorporate the theme of the season into your photos. For instance, you could request a Christmas theme. Alternatively, you could also opt to incorporate felt snowflakes or winter trees into the background.

With so much focus placed on your baby, it is easy to forget to include yourself as the parent, within the picture. To make sure that you don’t forget to make an appearance, it can be helpful to write a reminder to yourself. Not to mention that you will treasure these photos of you and your child for years to come.


Baby on the Beach

Teddy bears and babies are the perfect combination of cuteness. To add a fun touch to your photos, stage your photo with a teddy bear which is the same size, or even larger than your baby. Then you can stage additional photos later on which emphasise your baby’s growth, and in effect creating a teddy bear timeline!

How to Prepare Your Baby For Photos


Schedule Ahead of Time

Schedule Ahead of Time

It is important that you schedule your photography session ahead of time. If you would like a newborn photo shoot, in particular, many photographers recommend that the session takes place within the first two weeks after birth.

During your baby’s first two weeks they will be more likely to sleep through the session. This will allow your photographer to capture all of those adorable sleepy newborn photos you are looking for.

As it is ideal to have a newborn photoshoot within the first two weeks after birth, it is important to book your photography session beforehand. If you wait until after your baby is born there is a chance that your photographer may be all booked up within those first two weeks.

So, to ensure that your photo shoot goes smoothly and to reduce your stress, it is best to book ahead of time.

Keep Baby Warm

An important aspect of ensuring a smooth photo shoot is keeping your baby warm and toasty throughout the session.

Hosting the photo shoot in your home? Some photographers recommend that it is best to keep the temperature on the warmer side at around 28 Celsius. This will help to keep your baby warm, especially if you plan on taking any photos where they won’t have a blanket.

Another top way to keep your baby toasty during a home photo shoot is to heat up blankets periodically in your dryer.
