12 Ideas For Baby Christmas Pictures You Need To See

If you’re looking for ideas to capture the most precious baby Christmas pictures, check out these Instagram shots of babies who totally nailed it!

Baby Snowman

How adorable is this tiny newborn snowman? All you need to do this at home is a knit snowman hat, little scarf, and any plain white blanket to swaddle the little one up.

Baby’s First Snow

This handsome little sweetie didn’t actually need to feel a touch of cold to achieve this photo, it’s just an effect put on the photo digitally. But it sure does look wintery!

Dear Santa…

What would your baby ask for in his letter to Santa? I love how the old fashioned typewriter gives this photo a vintage, rustic feel.

Under the Christmas tree

This sweet baby girl embodies the magic of Christmas with her expression of wonder looking up from under the Christmas tree! With some good background lighting this one can be recreated at home by anybody. Just don’t put any breakable ornaments within baby’s reach.

Baby booty wrapped in Christmas lights

Nothing could be cuter than a baby’s bottom… unless it’s a baby’s bottom at Christmas time! The lights give this photo a warm, seasonal feeling that just adds to the baby cuteness.

Baby Elf on the Shelf

I can’t even with these babies as the Elf on the Shelf! Total cuteness overload. This has to be one of the best baby Christmas pictures I’ve ever seen.

Milk and Cookies Bath

Combine Santa’s love of milk and cookies with your baby’s love for taking baths to get this fun and adorable photo.

Babies love to look at shiny things, so capture their attention by dangling a Christmas ornament over them. With the Christmas tree glowing in the background, it makes for a magical Christmas photo.

Coming Down the Chimney

I love a little humor in a Christmas picture. Baby is heading down the chimney the same way he came down the birth canal- head first!

Baby Santa and his pup

This little Santa may be snoozing under the Christmas tree, but Santa pup is keeping watch. Babies + dogs = double the cuteness.

Away in a Manger

Christmas is about the birth of Jesus after all, so why not recreate the scene by photographing your little one in a manger?

The best present of all

This precious baby girl was born on Christmas Eve. I know there was no gift more special than her under that Christmas tree!
