a good picture?

so my baby is due on Sept. 15. and my husband and I want to take pictures when she's first born. I want to do some kinda of seasonal theme, but I cant think of any cute ideas. I had a friend who put her baby in a real pumpkin (they carved it out and put a blanket in it so the baby wouldn't get nasty) but the only thing is the baby was like 3months. and I want to do something when she's newborn so I can send the pictures to my family who live out of state and wont be able to see her. any ideas? something seasonal please, something for fall, but I want it kinda girlly too.this is my husband and I's first baby

  • i agree with the leaves. or a basket with apples in it and maybe some little baby pumpkins in the front of it with a letter from her name painted on it and spelled out or carved out and lit up with candles

  • girly in september? and seasonal?


    go to the goodwill and get some fake leaves or something festive

    maybe you could just photoshop a picture of the baby into something

  • September 15 is still summer, but the fall ideas previously mentioned sound cute, too.

  • There is a lady here in town that does excellent photography.  If you go to her website, click on Portfolio.  Maybe you can get some ideas that way.

  • take some fabric fall colored leavs and lay them on a brown or orange blanket and lay the baby in differen positions (on stomach, bac and sides with arms propped in dif. positions, u can do it with him naked or wearing a cute fall colored cloth diaper cover- also u can do a pile of the fabric leaves and snap pics while dh drops leaves around him so it looks like the leaves are falling around him ill come back with more ideas as i have them
