Mommy Knows Best: Picking a Theme for Your Baby’s Photoshoot
Birthdays are always a big deal—whether you’re a 4 year-old mischief-maker waiting anxiously for a surprise, or a 40 year-old dad (waiting anxiously for yours)!
Cake, candles, balloons, music—no matter how young or old you may be, the rituals of a grand celebration always remain the same. And despite the expectations that come with every birthday, there’s something particularly endearing about celebrating someone’s very first!
A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words
The person having the most fun on a birthday is usually the one turning a year older. And it shouldn’t be any different for your little bundle of joy!
However, many parents tend to think that a child’s first birthday is for friends and family. After all, a baby doesn’t know a cake from a present!
But in my experience as a newborn photographer NJ, I can tell you with certainty that photo shoots of any kind—especially your baby’s first—can have an enormous impact on your relationship with your child.
And in most cases, the younger they are, the greater their value!
Prepping and Planning
As a mommy, you probably have a myriad of creative ideas for your child’s first birthday—sticking only to one that fits your budget.
Luckily, a baby photo shoot gives you the opportunity to go all out with an exuberant theme that tickles your fancy and creates a treasure trove of precious memories that’ll never grow old!
Let’s take a look at a couple of adorable ideas that are sure to put a smile on your baby’s face (and yours)!
Animal Themed Photo Shoot
This one’s for the wild child who shares an affinity for animals, just like their momma.
An animal-themed photo shoot features a beautiful backdrop of the jungle, with cute props from the wild. Let your baby crawl freely in a breathtakingly adorable animal costume in a totally safe and secure environment as a professional photographer does her thing.
Bonus: Goes swimmingly with an animal-themed birthday party!
Sentimental value: 10 (especially if your child grows up to be a tough cookie)!
Cake Smash Photo Shoot
What’s a party without cake?
Make your baby’s dream come true with a cake smash photo session that lets them have their cake and eat it too!
This is one of the most popular baby photo shoot NJ themes this year, with mommies picking a color scheme and birthday outfit that matches the aesthetic of their cake.
Watch as your little angel crawls curiously towards the cake, takes an innocent bite and ends up in a delightfully delicious mess!
