So, you’ve had your beautiful new baby and are looking for individualistic ways of taking their first few photos.
First of all, congratulations on your new bundle of pride and joy. May they live a very happy and healthy life!
The good news is that the options are virtually limitless when it comes to thinking of newborn photo ideas for your baby.
This can be a great opportunity to tie in what you and your spouse are like with the beautiful new addition to the family.
Let these ideas be a starting point for the theme that you choose to portray.
Your beautiful new baby boy or girl is delicate and as their parents, you’ll stop at nothing to keep them protected from everything.
What better way to portray their soft, gentle nature than by wrapping them up in the world’s comfiest little baby blanket?
The blanket will exude a symbol of the warm embrace that you are going to provide for your child their entire life… what a beautiful thought!
These photos are a great way to showcase the interests and tendencies of your family and expressing how your baby now trumps them all.
If you’re a big fan of taking the boat out and being on the ocean, your child is most likely going to share that love with you as they grow up. The boat photos are a great way to show they were born to be at sea.
Find a small boat of some kind that’s just the right size to lay your baby in, grab a colorful yet cozy blanket to lay across the boat so your child is comfortable.
Grab a few accessories, such as seashells or tiny buoys for some added cuteness!
If this is your firstborn child, you’ve already realized that your entire world has been shifted upside-down. What you once thought were priorities now don’t even come close to the importance of your new son/daughter.
Show that off by expressing the tiny prince or princess that they are with a royalty-themed photo.
Maybe you and your significant other are proud to be a bit boujee yourselves, let everyone know that your child is going to carry on that tradition!
If you already have a few children before this little one came along, it’s a great idea to tie them into the picture as well.
Your family is growing, and it’s growing fast! Those little ones are all going to spend their entire lives together, figuring life out, with you and your spouse as their role models… what a beautiful thought!
Capture that by matching them all up in cute little outfits (to match the baby’s blanket color) and show the world that Team *insert your last name here* is the cutest team around.
The siblings’ theme would be a very adorable idea, but why not get yourself involved as well?
Tie in the whole family and have professional pictures done while you and the kiddos are in your natural habitat… your house.
It can be as fun and lively as having you and your kids dressed up among a (intentional) mess of toys or as organized as taking pictures on your bed with the bedsheets, your clothes, and wall colors all matching in beautiful harmony.
You’ll treasure those photos of you and your little ones smiling from ear to ear for your entire life. Especially as you learn that it becomes harder and harder to get the kids to cooperate for photos as they get older.
If your little gift from above was born around a significant holiday, then embrace that with getting photos centered around it… the timing is perfect!
Should your baby have been born around Christmas, set up them of making them your early Christmas present from Santa with them cuddled up in an open box.
If they were born around Halloween, create a cute-yet-spooky theme with them cuddled around tiny pieces of candy.
You get the idea, this theme allows for a lot of creativity and fun for you as well!
Often times, before this little one was born you already had a pride and joy at home in the shape of a furry pal.
Now you have two pride and joy’s and they’re both just as special as the other one.
Your pup has been with you through the years, and they’re prepared to protect your baby and be with your growing family.
These photos will be some of the most precious photos you’ll ever have. Years from now, you’ll look back at these pictures and see how much both of them have changed and grown together.
Now the trick is getting Sparky to sit still for the photos.
Is your family a sports-first family? If there’s a huge tradition of inviting the entire neighborhood over to your house every week for the big game, use that in your baby pictures as well.
Whether it’s a theme of your favorite sport, favorite college team, or favorite professional team, they’ll look good in whatever you place them in.
The little baby will grow up to be a superstar, and these photos will show how destined they were for greatness from the start!
Does your little angel already move and act like they’re ready for a dramatic role in cinema? If so, show them the path to Hollywood with a movie theme.
You can incorporate a family-favorite movie, a movie that was released around the time of their birth, or just line up cute little film clips around them cuddled up.
Maybe even kick it up a notch by finding a tiny director’s hat to put on them, wouldn’t that be precious??
There’s nothing wrong with tying your interests into your newborn photo ideas, it shows how invested you are in your little one going forward. Whatever your ideas are, we can bring them to life!
