beautiful baby picturesMore spectacular baby photo ideas:

  • Don't just wait for a smile: Capture the abundant emotions of the baby—happy and sad, silly, mischievous, or surprised.
  • Props are OK: Even ordinary props can become very funny with a baby. Like a baby with big adult shoes, big sunglasses, or a funny shirt.
  • Vary locations and angles: Take pictures of your baby having fun in different settings, or sleeping in strange positions.
  • Show how little he or she really is: Take photos that emphasize Baby's proportions—e.g., tiny feet or fingers. Make your photo striking by shooting Baby's hand holding Dad's, Grandma's, or Grandpa's hand.
  • Be sure to get the traditional images, too: First birthday cake on your little one's face? Grab the camera, of course! There's never been a bad photo of a baby enjoying his or her first birthday cake!
