Make the most of the pictures you take of your newborn baby. Discover fun ways to share precious photos with your friends and family — from gourmet cookies to private websites.
Babies change with every passing day, and there’s a natural tendency to want to capture every moment. New moms and dads scramble to take pictures, from professional studio photography to smartphone shots on Instagram. Do more with your photos with one of these fun ways to take and share baby pictures.
Newborn photo shoots are an excellent time to splurge on a professional photographer. Experienced baby photographers can work with studio lighting and settings to create ethereal photographs of your newborn. Lyndsey Thomas of Elle Marie Photography encourages families to use props that are particularly meaningful to the parents. “Fuzzy hats and pretty bows are adorable and make for cute photos but if you can use a prop that pays tribute to a family member or a special memory, it makes the photo that much more meaningful to for years to come,” she says.
Whether you’ve taken professional photos or you’ve captured snapshots with your iPhone, you can share your newborn baby photos creatively, including sending unique birth announcements.
When it comes to sharing your baby’s pictures online, you may be concerned with privacy. Every parent has a unique take on this issue, but it’s becoming more and more common to avoid posting pictures of children and babies publicly. If you’re concerned, try a photo sharing service such as Origami. This premium service charges $5 a month for a secure photo and video sharing site that you can grant access to an unlimited number of family and friends.
