Christmas Pictures for Baby – Best Ideas For DIY Baby’s First Christmas Photos

Looking for some Christmas pictures for baby? Here are the best ideas for DIY baby’s first Christmas photos to celebrate the season! These baby pictures are so cute they’re sure to bring a smile to your face. Pick a theme or a setting, make sure the house is warm and baby fed and be inspired to try one or more of these baby pictures yourself.

Here are easy baby photo prop ideas for your diy photography baby’s first Christmas:

• Waiting for Santa – if your baby is old enough to sit and you have a chimney, position them in front of it looking up as if they’re watching for Santa to come down.

• Sleeping In A Stocking – if your baby is very young this Christmas, take a photo of them asleep under or inside their Christmas stocking! Make it cuter by adding a Santa hat and a candy cane in their hand.

• Christmas /Fairy Lights – take a photo of your baby surrounded by fairy lights. They’ll likely be fascinated by the lights and you may get some seriously cute expressions!

• Reading a Book – books are a great prop to use for photos. Get your favorite child’s Christmas book and position your baby so he seems to be reading it – this one is especially adorable if you put your baby on his tummy or if he is sitting and holding the book. You can also do this one on the bed, especially with siblings! For a very young baby, you can open the book and position them asleep on it.

• Asleep in Front of the Christmas Tree – take a photo of your little one asleep beside the Christmas tree with the lights on.

• Bassinet By the Tree – if you have a Moses basket or a bassinet that is easy to move around, position it by the tree and take a photo.

• Watching the Tree – position your baby sitting looking at the Christmas tree with their Santa hat on. Get your dog to sit beside your baby in his Christmas best too!

• A Photo from Above – get your white fluffy blanket and lay baby on it very close to the Christmas tree. Take a photo from above, making sure you get the tree branches and baubles in the shot (you might need a chair to get high enough for a good shot.)

• With Santa – you could go get your baby’s photo taken with Santa… or you could convince a family member to dress up as Santa and take a photo of them with baby at home. For newborns, take a photo of Santa with baby draped over his arm or cradled close in front of the tree. For older babies, you can have baby sitting on Santa’s lap, held up in the air, looking at Santa, sitting in front of Santa’s boots… so many options!

• With a Christmas Toy – have you got a cute Christmas soft toy for your baby? Such a simple photo prop idea!

• It’s All About the Outfit – you don’t need to get complicated, so many Christmas photos are all about the baby and her cute outfit. Set up a simple backdrop – white fluffy rug plus a few Christmas baubles, or Christmas lights, Christmas-themed cushions or stuffed toys, or wrapped gifts – add a sweet little baby in a Christmas or winter outfit with a Santa hat or a bow and you’ve got Christmas photo magic! You can make this one however many ways you like with different outfits and backdrop combos.
