- Use props that match your baby’s personality
If your baby is a happy, energetic infant, choose props that will reflect that. If your baby is more reserved or serious, look for props that will capture that mood. You want your photos to represent your baby’s unique personality, so choose props that will help you do that.
- Get creative with angles
Try taking photos from different angles to add interest and variety to your shoot. Get down on your baby’s level and take some close-ups, or try an overhead shot. Play around with different perspectives to get the best results.
- Use natural light
Whenever possible, use natural light for your baby photoshoot. Soft, natural light is flattering and will help you capture beautiful photos. If you’re shooting indoors, try to find a room with plenty of windows and avoid using flash.
- Capture everyday moments
In addition to posed shots, try to capture some everyday moments. These candid shots will add realism and personality to your photos. Look for opportunities to snap a photo while your baby is playing, laughing, or sleeping.
- Edit your photos
Once you’ve taken all of your photos, it’s time to edit them. Choose the best photos from the shoot and edit them to perfection. You can use a photo editing program like Photoshop or Lightroom, or you can opt for a free online editor like PicMonkey.
