Most parents put the good pictures of their kids on social media. In fact, Facebook and Instagram are chock full of adorable photos taken by the best professionals. Sometimes, Mom and Dad take their own photos and the results aren’t always as great.
Any photographer worth their salt can get kids to pretend they are having fun. When parents are in charge, that often doesn’t happen. These kids really didn’t want to let their parents take their photo.
No Bow Tie
Mom and Dad just wanted a dapper looking picture of their little guy. So they used the photo on the left as inspiration. Clearly, their son was having no part of it.
It’s almost guaranteed that the top photo was taken in a studio. Try to copy it at home and the results aren’t as stellar. Babies love to eat things and those decorations are no exception.
This photo is proof positive that photo studio props are better than the ones at home. The baby isn’t crying but sure doesn’t lool that comfortable. The memories won’t be forgotten though.
Sleeping baby pictures are the best…when the baby cooperates. These parents wanted an angelic photo of their slumbering baby. Too bad that was the exact moment the baby decided to yawn.
No Carrots, Please
Here’s an adorable photo idea for the Easter holiday. The baby on the right doesn’t like carrots and bunny ears though.
Tons of Kisses
The baby on the left is probably the one infant in the world who allowed this to happen. Most babies are more like the one on the right. Too much lipstick, Mom!
Commemorating a new arrival is really fun. You can tell that the sister on the right doesn’t want to give up her place as center of attention. She’s taking it while she still can.
Reading a Book
The baby on the left is really getting into his comic book. Maybe if the little guy on the right had a comic book, he wouldn’t look so disgusted.
The idea was a great one for the holidays to give as gifts. Too bad the baby on the bottom was too tired to participate. Sorry, Grandma and Grandpa!
I Hate This
An after bath photo is a must for any baby book. The little one on the bottom didn’t like the idea though. In fact, it makes him angry.
No More Kisses
This is another idea that is really cute in theory. Try it out and you’ll probably find that your baby hates it. This baby sure does.
The top photo is a prime example of what can be accomplished in a studio. The bottom photo is a prime example of what happens when parents try to copy it. Cute, but funny!
I Hate Pumpkins!
Clearly not all babies love the idea of being inside a pumpkin. The baby on the right finds it cold and gross. No cherubic fall photos happening there.
Most parents take a naked newborn photo or two. Professionals are great at getting babies all tucked up into a prop. Parents – not so much.
