25 Inspiring and Adorable Baby Photos

Baby photos are just the cutest to swoon over.  And guess what — did you know that May is known as National Photographer Month? As an avid-picture takin’ queen, I am constantly browsing inspiring baby photos to help me stir up ideas for my next photo session. My best friend Kim Flores is known as one of the best photographers in the Baltimore area and I am thrilled I have her to capture those special milestones.

But even if you don’t have a photographer, try picking up the hobby yourself! It’s a fun, relaxing thing to do for all ages. You can find never-ending tutorials and inspiration on Pinterest. Browse your favorite photography blogs to find inspiration and get your creative juices flowing. Pin ideas you want to try at home too! You may be surprised at what you capture in just a click of a button. Learning photoshop can be fun too and is a great editing tool you can use on your home computer.

Taking photos of baby during all of those precious milestones from newborn to 18 months and beyond is a great way to capture memories and fill your house with beautiful photos.
