2022 Infant & Baby Photo Trends

Looking for inspiration for photos for your little one?  Here are some super fun (and trendy) ideas for capturing the most adorable pictures!

1. Cake smash first birthday sessions

These are always so much fun!  Baby gets to have a blast and enjoy cake and you get the sweetest pictures (pun slightly intended).  These are also great because you can do them almost anywhere- indoors or outdoors.  You can keep it simple with nature in the background or you can surround baby with a special theme.  Either way, these turn out great!

2. Fun floral backgrounds

I don’t think floral backdrops will ever go out of style and I am here for it!  Fields of wildflowers, flower walls, and loose flowers laid around baby are all beautiful options.

3. Monthly photoshoots with number of months

This has been popular for years but more recently it’s gone up a notch with themes and more professional flair.  But whether you DIY it or hire a family photographer, you won’t regret documenting baby’s progress each month during their first year.

4. Outdoor newborn sessions

These have become crazy popular in the last few years, especially with COVID and social distancing.  Of course families still want their precious newborn photoshoots but more than anything want to keep baby safe so this is a great way to get the best of both.

5. In-home lifestyle newborn sessions

This is one of my favorites (and what I offer for newborn photoshoots)!  These give parents the opportunity to show off their beautiful nursery and allow parents and baby to stay comfortable in their surroundings.  They show a very natural side while capturing beautiful photos to last a lifetime.
