We have plenty of inspiration for you pinned on our Pinterest board Babys First Christmas.

There are a few themes happening including the use of the following..some are simple and some more elaborate but it doesn’t take much to give it a go.

  1. Christmas lights
  2. Candy canes
  3. Santa hats
  4. Under the tree
  5. In a stocking
  6. Cute little hats..see reindeer one above
  7. Christmas tree baubles

And don’t be put off by the fact that many of these are from professional photographers..here are a few tips to getting the perfect pic.

-try to find a nice well lit location preferably natural light

-try to just get a clear in focus shot

– why not lay out an unwrinkled blanket or some Xmas themed paper or table cloth for a back drop and lay the baby onto it.

– don’t forget you can edit in Instagram itself to lighten your picture and  sharpen it or add any filters.

–  just have some fun.

Wake up people!!!! Its the first of December!!

There’s no denying that Christmas is well and truly around the corner, 24 days in fact. I’m not even going to ask if you have started shopping yet. We are planning to put the tree up tonight and make it a bit of special fun.

So its time to bring out the Christmas posts to get you all feeling in the fun spirit..it’s so much more fun with kids.

I may be showing my age but when I was a kid I remember Anne Geddes was hugely popular. Dressing up newborn babies as all manner of creatures, her images were on cards, diaries, calendars … everywhere!!

I came across this cutie while compiling my latest pinterest board full of cute little christmas newbies.  While design your babe as a reindeer may be a little beyond your capabilities ..there are so many cute ideas that I’m sure you could try yourself or when you have that newborn photo session.

I’m going to share a few more over the coming weeks till Christmas but you can head over and see the board on my pinterest page HERE.   And you will find lots of other cute photo ideas and nursery decorating inspiration.
