Nothing beat the smell of a newborn baby, except maybe swooning over newborn baby pictures. The cliche statement, “They grow up so fast”, is never truer than with babies. You only have a tiny window of opportunity to preserve the pure essence of newborn loveliness. Looking for the best way to capture that moment? Here are our picks for ‘Must Take’ new born pictures.
My favorite photos of my boys as babies are collages. With collage, you can get little glimpses of all the bits that make them so lovable. (Photo Credit: Vintage Duck)
I love the delicacy of newborn hands. Their beautiful fingers, all the tiny creases and how they grasp on to anything! The fist bump is by far my favorite for any new Dad. (Photo Credit: Renee Britt, Zdenko Boskovic)
Oh, the places their feet will take them! Seriously, who can pass up taking pictures of little corn nugget toes? (Photo Credit: Victoria Ford)
4. Sibling Shots
Don’t forget to include the older siblings in your photo shoots. Nothing makes the older sibling feel more special than some exclusive shots of ‘just them’ and the new addition. (Photo Credit: Derksen Photography, Kristin Rachelle)
5. Creative Family Shots
When you think family shots, think outside of the box. I love how these shots capture the parents but they aren’t they focus on the picture. This is also great for the Mom who may not be feeling super photogenic after just having a baby. (Photo Credit: Luna Bella, AC Ellis)
Nothing warms my heart more than a Father/Newborn picture.While everyone was focusing on Mom during the pregnancy, Dad stood by and patiently waited. Now it is his turn to shine and take center stage. (Photo Credit: Extra Medium, Esther Dorotik)
