We wish you and your baby a very merry Christmas.
With a cute Santa or elf cap
The easiest way to take a baby Christmas picture is to simply put a Santa cap on your little bundle of joy. You can do this photoshoot at home and your baby can be sleeping, laying down or sitting and smiling. Either way, this baby picture will never be out of style and will always be the perfect Christmas classic.
The most adorable snowman
This look is not as complicated as it may seem! You will just need a black hat, a red scarf, and some orange and black body paint. But an old eyeliner and lipstick should do the trick. For an even more Chrismas-looking scene, put your little snowman on a white surface that may look like snow. This style is better for older babies and toddlers, as it looks better when he or she is awake and sitting.
The best gift one may receive
There truly isn’t a better gift. It is also the cutest. This photoshoot will need a bit of crafting on your part as you need to prepare the gift box. If your baby is old enough, the box can be empty, for a newborn use a smaller box and fill it with blankets. Then place the gift box in front of the Christmas tree for the perfect festive atmosphere. And don’t forget to put a Santa cap or a big bow on your little gifts’ head.
Christmas lights for a magical photo
This may be a bit of a photographic challenge. But if you nail the lighting this baby Christmas picture can be truly magical. It just radiates a sense of calm and wonder. Just surround your little one with Christmas lights and let him or her play with them. You can use a Santa cap or other props to make it clear its Christmas.
Put him in a big (or tiny) stocking
You can use a common red Christmas stocking or you can upgrade this whole photoshoot by embroidering the name of your baby on it. This is the perfect Christmas picture for a newborn as he or she can just be lying and sleeping.
