Oh So Cute! 33 Baby Photos You Have To Try

We take so many baby photos, don’t we? Babies are so adorable, it’s hard to imagine there’s any need to make them look any more adorable through photography but – alas – it’s possible.

If you’re hiring a photographer for a professional photo shoot, it’s often wonderful to give them some ideas on what you’d like. Of course, they’ll have some ideas of their own but delivering a good brief is helpful for both of you.

If you’re doing some DIY photography at home, the world is your oyster because you can catch your baby in many states of being – sleeping, smiling, laughing. You can even keep some cute costumes and props handy for that ideal moment.

While smart phones produce pretty good quality photos these days, a good quality DSLR camera is a wonderful investment as you can better manage composition, lighting and focus.

The D in DSLR stands for ‘digital’ which is perfect because it means you can take as many photos as you want then print them onto many different materials, including canvas, glass and aluminium.

Are you ready to get clucky? Let’s get started with some of the cutest ideas you’ll simply have to try.

Darling Angels

It’s all about the wings. For an angelic pose, catch baby while sleeping or while awake. Don the costume and capture the gorgeousness.

Crazy But Cute Baby Photos

Have fun with your baby photos. Those big blue eyes become hilariously emphasised on a monochrome photo – an easy trick in Photoshop. Of course, when we’re talking about ‘crazy but cute’ costumes feature prominently.

Arty Baby

Black and white photos immediately scream ‘arty’. It’s all about capturing light and texture rather than colour. Removing colour can actually add something special to the right image. The key is shooting in monochrome from word go rather than removing the colour later.

Birthday baby

They may seem bigger to you, but they’re still so much a baby on their first birthday that it makes sense to take advantage of that special day and capture the most gorgeous photo you can. Think outside the ‘blowing out the candles’ family photos. Get your bub on their own using the party as their backdrop.

A Christening

They look extra innocent when they’re all in white (like they’ve never wee-ed, pooped or cried a day in their life!) and it’s such a special day. Be sure to catch it for prosperity. They’ll thank you for it later.

Little Family

Get the family involved in some staged photography. Candid is wonderful, but sometimes even those more staged moment are full of love and feeling. Take turns behind the camera.
