After going through countless baby photo-shoot ideas, I was eager to create a list that was concise, distinctive, and unique which works for mothers. Whether you are:

These are the 5 great ideas that can be used wherever suits you best, so without further ado, let get straight to it.


The natural photo-shoot ideas are the absence of photography props involved. That is simply just using elements that are provided for free. You can take baby photos’ with your baby toes, hands or even nude for both you and your baby. The best thing about natural baby photo-shoot is that is can be done wherever is most comfortable.

Candid photos’ I find to be my personal favorite idea and not because it is free. Well that too, but it allows creativity and provide with the opportunity to interact and just capture great natural moments with your baby.

Adding a prop to your baby photo-shoot is one way of  adding character or capturing different moments with your baby photography.

Having a photo-shoot that tells a story is one of the many great ideas to include in your baby’s photo. This provides a sense of direction so whether you are conducting the photo-shoot yourself or having it done professionally, it helps to have a vision of what exactly you want for your baby and yourself.

Telling a story can be in the form of a theme, I love themes! they give the photos life and character. The benefit of having a theme for your baby photo-shoot is ultimately it saves time, money and energy.

When having a photo-shoot for your newborn baby it is wise to keep the activities as light as possible. The less is required of your baby, the best chance you have of an irritably free and exciting experience for the little one.

Telling a story can be from a princess /prince theme concept to a Halloween/Christmas, it is really up to you and what represents the story you wish to tell.



Having your family involved in your baby photo-shoot is a wonderful and glorious experience for both yourself, baby and family. Interaction with your newborn is key in having a fun and stress-free photo-shoot for everyone.

Siblings shoots are great when candid, for me it gives the photos' life, however, it can be done with or without props/accessories and this is what makes family involvement great. Photo-shoot done at home is recommended when considering involving family members, it provides a safe heaven for everyone which will result in great interactions.


When I think about a complete perfect baby photo-shoot I think about blankets, wraps, and basket. Why? Wraps and blankets are increasing capturing the hearts of parents worldwide when talking about baby photo-shoot.

These are all multipurpose props which allow flexibility in capturing great moments with your precious one. Blanket used for baby photo-shoot for me was a great choice, not only does it allow a unique experience but it works well with other props/accessories and it is safe and comfortable for your baby.

  2. Aaaww, the babies are adorable! I was lucky to witness a newborn baby photo shoot for my niece when she was just 10 days old. My sister and her husband just went for candid shots and never opted for with props because of some safety reasons. My niece was a crying baby then but it was a good thing she’s in a good mood throughout the shoot. I never thought about your idea of telling a story photo shoot. I’d like to try that someday for my own baby. Thanks for these great ideas!

      Sure you’ll make a great mom someday! 🙂
