poses for Baby's first Photoshoot

With some gurgling coos and their cute little tushies, babies look cute effortlessly without trying. But this stage just goes away within a couple of weeks and all you have to worry about is their education. It’s hard to bring back those times again. The only option remains to enjoy them by capturing your lad’s cute little paws and feet. 


Baby's first Photoshoot

Parents plan everything about their babies starting from the formula to the soap they will be using. We assume you would also be anxious about your lad’s shoots and are searching for some poses for the baby shoot as well and if so, you should consider some of the given ideas for your tiny tot as well. Make sure your baby is active before the shoots, so he could pose sleeping peacefully in front of the cameras.

Make sure you make your baby lie, keeping his/her back facing towards you. Fold their delicate hands and legs, tucking them securely. Make them face his side on the left or right side. In case you have a baby girl, you can make them wear a headband and if you have a boy, make him wear a cute little hat or a beanie. 


This pose will make your baby look adorable as well as wiser. You just need to wrap your baby securely around a comfortable cloth by putting his palms out. Place his right hand on his cheek and the other just below it making it look like peeking from the wrapped cloth and you got your baby looking like thinking about his dream.

For this pose, you need some kind of basket or a tub. Cross your baby’s arms tucking them below the chin of your baby. You can use the blanket to cover the other half of the baby’s body with a blanket or cotton fabric. Angle his face downwards making it look like he is peaking down. Use neutral color palettes for showing a calm and composed effect.

Make sure your baby is at least a month old to support his head, as babies are fragile, and this pose during the initial stages may harm the baby as well. 



This pose is a charming one! Ensure your baby is in a deep sleep. Make him sleep on a mini-bed or a basket filled up with mattresses to comfort the baby. Join both the hands of the baby and place them below the head of the baby. Tilt his head to face the camera. Similarly, cross the baby’s leg or just put a comforter on him. And look at the sleepy bear dreaming.

This is a MUST to do pose which you should definitely ask your photographer to take. This cute little wrinkled soft foot is going to be missed by you and the time to lose them is ticking already. To take an appropriate angle of the feet, you join both of them or just show them to the camera, and trust us even after you turn old, you are going to remember these paw prints of your newborn as they are now. 


babies are very delicate and have a developing stage of growth hence ensure your baby’s heart is supported in each and every section of the photo shoot. You must also consider a photo shoot for your lad after he/she is some weeks old at least.


The baby photoshoot is a whole new task when you need to handle these new cubs, so to make the process go smooth like butter you must ensure that the baby is well-fed and is wide awake before the shoot. If you wish to add to some themes as well, talk to your concerned photographer prior to it so the idea involved is baby friendly and safe.
