Expecting a bundle of joy this year? Time to whip out the camera and make some memories! Here are 20 beautiful pregnancy photo ideas and inspiration for photographing your newborn baby.
Family by numbers
Announce your new addition with a bit of simple addition! If you don’t have a wall you can write on, simply pose for the photo, leaving space for the numbers and symbols. Then use editing software or an App such as Little Moments to write the text over the top.
Fell asleep reading …
Capture a real moment of cuteness by snapping your bubba softly sleeping over the families favorite picture book. Winnie The Pooh and The Hungry Caterpillar are classic examples. Bring out the books from your childhood and create some adorable new memories.
Let everyone see that two is soon to be three by using + 1 blocks. Line up and get ready to say cheese! This snapshot is a great way of letting friends and family in on your +1 surprise.
Show the whole world how quickly your new bubba’s have grown. If you don’t have a blackboard wall at home, simply re-create this look using a plain wall backdrop and online photo editor Fotor. Upload your gorgeous picks, choose your text and away you go.
