10 Babies first month photo ideas
by Bessie Young Photography
Pictures last a lifetime. These pictures will be images you cherish FOREVER. Don't let yourself talk yourself out of being in photos with your precious new bundle of joy. Hand over that camera and get just a few shots of you and your newborn. You can also set up a tripod if you would rather. Most women don't feel their best after having a baby, but that shouldn't stop you. A few suggestions to make you feel better in the picture:
- Lay down on your back and take the picture from above. Mama looking into the camera and crop the image at the chest.
- Take the picture standing with the image cropped around the chest line.
- Sit down on a stool with baby in your arms up around your chest. Crop the image right below the chest line
- Have daddy sit down on a stool holding baby. Stand behind him (with no gap between you and him). Arm should be on his shoulder and not pressed against your body. Remember to put all your weight on the hip farthest from the camera.
Men and babies truly melt women. Seeing a grown man fall in love with a tiny newborn is enough to melt a woman's heart. It is beautiful, wonderful, and all around priceless. Get that daddy in front of the camera, even if he doesn't want to.
The details are what make your baby unique. Ideas for details are toes, lips, noses, hair, eyelashes, fingers, and lets not forget the wrinkles.
Now go out and get those pictures! Obviously this isn't a full list of images to capture more or less just something to get your creativeness going. For more ideas check out my Pinterest board here: https://www.pinterest.com/bessyoungphoto/newborn-portraits/
