Baby Poses To Try
Skip those boring poses – try these instead!
Forget about those boring poses you see every day. These photographers are here to show you their best unique and adorable baby poses.
Those tiny baby wrinkles don’t last long. Capture them like photographer Rebecca Williams did with this close-up shot.
Try capturing an image of a newborn with a statement piece of artwork. The baby is a statement on its own, but coupled with a statement piece of artwork, you've created a memorable and eye-catching image. Photographer Maureen Ford did exactly that here.
In your hands
Capturing a photo of your baby in your hands is a great way to document his small size. Photographer Darcy Nichole of Studio VM3 captured it in a unique way – with a baby boy getting a little upset at the thought of being moved. The expression on his face says it all.
In his crib
You’ll always want to remember how he looks when he’s sound asleep in his nursery, so why not snap a shot, as photographer Meggan Joy did in this photo.
We’ve all seen photos of a newborn baby curled up on a blanket. Why not add a cute costume for a twist, like baby and newborn photographer Jane Goodrich did with this shot?
There’s nothing new about photos of tiny baby feet, but Goodrich set this tiny baby in between his parents and includes their tootsies in the photo, as well. If you’ve had a good pedicure lately, this is a super cute pose to consider.
Family poses are a dime a dozen, but we’re guessing you’ve never tried this one. Goodrich captured a family getting comfy on a sofa, and made the pose her own by taking the photo from high above them rather than straight on.
All bundled up
Babies tend to be dressed pretty minimally for most photo sessions (if they’re wearing anything at all). Try something new by getting him all bundled up for winter weather. Goodrich took it one step further by actually placing the baby in the snow.
On her feet
Your baby can’t walk yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a picture of her on her feet. Mom and dad can help get baby up, and they’ll create a fun memory in the process (photo courtesy of Jane Goodrich).
In his element
You’ll have an album full of baby close-ups. Make sure to get a few that capture him in his environment, as well. This photo by Janelle Photopoulos of Fresh Nest documents this baby playing in his crib, a sight that his parents probably see every day now, but will want to remember later. It also captures the look of his nursery, making it a keepsake in more ways than one.
Don't take all your photos from head-on. Try different angles, like from down low, up high, or from the side, to make ordinary poses seem extraordinary.
