Your baby’s first valentine should create moments that you and the baby will live to remember by taking a look at the photos.

During the photo shoot, it is advisable to have a helper. The activity is fun but can become tiring and hectic if you do it alone. As you all know, Valentine’s day is a day to express love to our loved ones. It is one of the holidays that you can take advantage of and get the most adorable photos of the baby. St Valentine’s is one of those holidays with a theme color; red. This means as you plan your new baby photo shoot, you need to consider having red in the theme. Red could appear in balloons, outfits, or background. Here are some tips you can follow to gain the best shoot.

1.Frog Pose

Frog pose is one the most traditional methods to get a photo shoot for your baby. Your baby will be safe and comfortable in the posture. You only need to place the newborn baby by the side and hands on the chin. Use a red rug and put your newborn baby.

2.Wrapped baby

When taking these photos, you require less equipment and attire. It would help if you wrapped the kid in or out of the cloth with their hands. To gain the valentine’s theme, use a red material to cover the kid or have some red roses around your baby.

3.Use of props.

As stated earlier, Valentine’s Day should celebrate love. Using props for your newborn baby valentine’s shoot will give you several ideas. You can use a background with mixed colors and red as the primary color. In addition, you can use heart-shaped props to symbolize valentines. With props, you can utilize hundreds of ideas for a valentines photo shoot.

4.Womb resemblance

As a new baby, there are minimal ways to take photos since they are fragile and cannot make poses. The womb pose is straightforward. The shoot idea is also known as the Taco pose. You will only require a smooth or cozy surface to place your newborn baby. In most cases, the babies are naked, so do not worry about the outfit. The baby is folded in such a way that its tiny legs and hands are visible. It would be best if you focused more on the face of the newborn. Have an indoor shoot with red balloons hanging from the ceiling to gain the Valentine’s Day theme.

5.Use posters

Are you looking for the most memorable valentine’s day shoot for your newborn? Use posters. The posters could have other family members and let the baby lay all over them. This is a way of showing family love. If you are a new parent, have baby bump and valentine’s day posters with quotes. You can include the new baby’s name or words to tell the baby how much love you have for them.

6.Grass shoot.

This idea is most advisable when the weather conditions are favorable. This is during sunny days. During cold seasons, do not risk your child’s health. Having a valentine’s newborn baby shoot on the grass is fantastic. The natural vibe will make your valentine’s day memorable. During the shoot, there are some grasses and plants that have red flowering. To mark Valentine’s Day, select a spot with a red theme. If not possible, improvise the red theme or have several props that will remind you of the day in the future when looking at the photos.

7.Use warm and soft blankets.

A newborn baby needs a lot of care. First and foremost, you need to protect your child from cold. You can use soft and warm blankets if the weather is not favorable. The idea is best for an indoor photo shoot. You can do it in any room. Most preferably, place the baby in a bed, have some red roses around and use red blankets. You can also use red balloons with ‘Happy 1st Valentine’s Day.

8.Boat Valentine Idea.

Do you live nearby? You can place some red rugs and blankets on the boat and have the boat painted with a valentines theme or have some flowers and cards hanging on the side. The baby can lie comfortably in the boat, asleep or awake, and capture the best photos. Use bright colors where red is the central theme.

9.Siblings Valentine idea

When a newborn baby is born, an older brother or sister feels like they just found a new best friend. During Valentine’s Day shoot, you can have them match the same outfit. Valentine is a day to share the love. Why not share it with your older sister or brother? The shoot will capture the love that they have for each other. You can have a red theme shoot where the two are dressed in red or wearing red hats. You can keep it simple by letting them lay on red rugs. In other instances, the elder sibling can hold a card or a gift with some loving message.

10.Sleeping Valentine Shoot

A newborn baby requires sleep more than anyone else. That is why they spend most of the time sleeping. During their sleep time, you can organize the shoot. This is the most straightforward shoot since the baby is peaceful. Before the baby sleeps, you can prepare the background and ensure that it has the Valentine’s Day theme. The clothes do not matter a lot. The day’s theme can be prepared as the baby is asleep so long as minimal noise is made.


Taking a newborn baby’s valentine’s photo shot can be a fan day for the family. In most cases, it is best to do an indoor shoot to make the costume and props easier. A newborn baby does not require too many outfits. Just a camera and some valentines theme.
