1. The sleeping Baby
No matter it’s a kids photo shoot or a wedding shoot, you always have to book the photographer for that day in advance, but what if you baby is sleeping when the photographer arrives? You need not worry because that’s where the strength of the baby candid photography lies. These tiny little beauties are full of cuteness and trust me, this cuteness multiplies when they are asleep.
There are many things that are to be taken care of while you are having the photoshoot, one of them is making sure that the baby is wearing comfortable clothes. This helps you when you are changing the position of the baby to et the best sleeping baby pose. The more comfortable the baby is, the more it will reflect in the image and every mother knows how precious it is to see the baby in a sound sleep.
2. The Naughty baby
Most of the times we compare a child’s activeness to naughtiness, but the truth is that the naughtiness reflects in the eyes and even the little babies can be extremely naughty just like this one:
That sparkle in the eyes and that cute little smile can melt the hardest stones. Every mother has the most cutest baby in the world, but the cuteness always differs. Sometimes the baby is calm and sweet and sometimes the baby is happy and naughty each with a little of its own uniqueness.
If you are lucky enough to have you baby awake at the time photographer is still at your home or the decided venue, you can have the most amazing child photoshoot. Just cuddle a little with your baby and wait for the moment he/she laughs heartily, that’s the golden opportunity for the photographer.
3. Baby with Teddy
Want that cuteness overloaded photograph of your little sunshine? Just place some soft toy near them while they are asleep. You can also place a teddy underneath the arm that will give an image of the baby sleeping with the teddy.
Carry the soft toys and other stuff that you baby loves with you to the venue of the photoshoot so that you can calm down your baby in case of need. These will make you baby happy and give the photographs a whole new look.
This is one of the smartest ways to get beautiful candid baby photographs, give them their favorite toy and they can give you some of the cutest baby smiles.
4. Baby in Basket
Babies in baskets can be considered one of the cutest things. Place some quirky props, they can be little boots, a beautiful blanket or a little tiara and choose your angle. Make sure that no part of babies body is touching the basket as it can make the baby uncomfortable and cause irritation.
Though any type of basket can be used, but a wooden basket is something that can take the picture to the next level. No matter it’s a boy photoshoot or a girl photoshoot, you can trust these baskets to give you perfect candid photographs. For adding more detail, place the basket with the baby in a green place like a garden or you can just put it on the floor:
Any way, the cuteness is going to pop out no matter where you are placing the basket.
5. The comfy Baby
Where there is baby, there is cuteness. Wrap your baby in some cute cloth nicely. Make sure you don’t disturb the little one while doing so. After you are done with the wrapping, place that small cocoon like baby one a beautiful feathery blanket and shoot the million-dollar shot.
At the end of the photoshoot, you will be amazed to see that even a photograph in which nothing is happening can be so enchanting. No smiles, no grins, still a photograph can fill you with such amazingly soothing vibes. On the other hand, you can always try new creative ideas to get you sleeping baby rock in the photographs because photography is not about poses, it’s about imagination and experimentation.
6. The Dreaming Baby
Many people believe that a baby smiles while sleeping because he is meeting the angels in dreams. Well, I don’t know if it’s true or its merely a myth, but I do know that babies look stunningly cute when they smile while sleeping. The challenge here is that you can’t make the baby smile while the photographer is still there at you home. Here, you can yourself become the photographer and capture this beautiful moment because the most amazing baby photograph is always clicked out from the unexpected moments.
Just stay put and watch your baby while he is sleeping, its no big task for a mother as they are the ones that can spend hours looking at their baby with eyes full of love and admiration.

You don’t have to be a pro while taking photograph of your baby. Just think about the things you see a feel like,Wow what have I created! Baby’s feet are surely one of those things. Those tiny little things are so cute that no one can deny its beauty. Just take your baby’s feet between your hands and ask someone to click a photo. You can have a look at one of those kinds of photographs here:
Or you can simply create a heart shape with your hands and place them around baby’s feet. Those tiny feet are a harbinger of joy to your family and as the time will pass, you will look at this photograph and it will fill you with beautiful feelings.
8. Baby on hands
Usually these types of images are clicked with father. Father’s hand symbolizes masculinity and security. The newborn baby is small and can be easily paced upon father’s hands giving an image of a place of security and care. This is how the image will look after the photographers and editors do their part.
These images don’t require any extra props or a lot of editing. You just need a loving father and a sleeping baby; rest is just love that gives it astonishing look and amazing vibe. The more you look at it, the more you fall in love with it.

A photograph with a baby and a mother is filled with love and cuteness flows out of it. Put a mother and baby together and you will know the true meaning of candid picture. The baby feels so comfortable in the arms of a mother that you can yourself fall in love with that calming and soothing scene.
No matter what angle you are taking it from, a baby and a mother photograph will always be beautiful and cute, telling a story of motherhood. The love, the care, the laughter, the peace, the calm, a whole new life created by a supermom is some of the things that you can see in these photos.
10. Baby with parents
An image of baby with parents will always remain one of the masterpieces in the field of photography. You can’t just describe that feeling when the baby is between the arms of people that are considered the epitome of love, care and security; the father and the mother. A child photoshoot becomes adorable when he has both of them around him.
The task of the photographer is just to pick out the awesome points from the best moments because each second spent in the arms of parents is amazing and nothing is comparable to that.
Last but not the least, if you want the amazing baby photoshoot, all you need is the love for baby shoot. If you have that soft corner for babies, and love to capture those innocent beauties, maybe your brain will fail at innovative ways of capturing images, but your heart will always find some beauty in the midst of normality.
