Newborn Baby Photography Ideas For The Cutest Birth Announcements

Of all the things you’ve shared with friends and family—a new home, an engagement, an adventurous vacation—there’s isn’t anything that quite compares to sharing the first pics or your little bundle of joy.

Guaranteed to rack up likes on your social feeds and have everyone oohing and aahing, your newborn baby photos require special attention and often a little help from a professional. Of course, you’ll be snapping more than your share of cute pics with your iPhone, but when it comes to those frame-worthy shots that you’ll print on birth announcements and share with almost everyone you know, you’re gonna want to put in a little extra TLC.

Photographers that specialize in newborn baby photography have their own secret sauce when it comes to capturing just the right moment in just the right light, so we highly recommend finding a pro to work with. That way you can also get a few shots of the whole family together for framing and family albums. Not to mention that they have a more artistic eye and can help you out with ideas for props and settings.

But whether or not you’re pulling it together yourself or with a professional, a good place to start is with inspiration for what you want to capture. There are literally hundreds of cute things you can do but we have put together a few favourites that are creative and simply adorable.
