Baby photoshoots might seem like a walk in a park, but that can not be farther from the truth. You’ll see life’s expectations versus the (sometimes not-so-pretty) reality… and they all feature adorable and hilarious babies! Yes, we agree that babies are cute and adorable, but try to put your snot-nosed, shrieking and wriggling bundle of joy into the right position for a cute baby picture. Suddenly, a walk in a park turns into a ride on the highway to hell.
And nowadays, Pinterest, Instagram or professional studios with the gorgeous ideas and perfectly executed photos of cute babies might trick you into taking the splendidly staged baby pictures yourself. But it’s easy to forget the amount of hard work, good luck, digital wizardry and skill that goes into creating a perfect photograph, especially when the subject is babies.
Take a look at these baby photos compiled by Baby AZ Today for example. They look so simple, right? What could be so hard about getting a beautiful picture of your newborn kid lying on a rug or sleeping in a bowl of gumballs? Well, everything actually, unless you did intend to take a hilariously funny baby picture.
1. Shag Rug Fail
The baby on the bottom is every single one of us when we attempt to recreate something beautiful we saw on Pinterest.
Family Portrait. Nailed It. And so begins a long life of constantly being embarrassed by your mom and dad…
3. Life is full of ups and downs. Tidings Of Comfort And…Joy?
These two photos are parenting in a nutshell. Many people say that second one is way better, parents gonna have a lot of fun showing that to their kids when they are older 🙂
4. Tonka Truck Fail
Do you think the adorable tot in the bottom photo grew up shunning toy trucks after this debacle? Is it The Funniest Baby Photoshoot Fails Ever?
5. At least you tried!
What I imagined having kids would be like vs. what having kids is actually life.
6. Something isn’t working here…
According to photographers who specialize in newborn photoshoots, pee and poop are just part of the deal when you’re trying to capture these special moments. This dad seems to have taken it in stride.
7. Candy Crying
I’m going to say it: Putting you baby is a dish of gumballs is the weirdest thing ever.
8. Christmas Is Delicious
Picture proof that babies will put anything and everything into their mouths.
9. Some Bunny Is Awkward
Photos like this really prove how masterful professional baby photographers actually are.
10. Like Mother Like Daughter. Nailed It
Both of my children would 100% take the photo on the right instead of the sweet photo on the left.
11. Keeping the memory of having a new member
I definitely love the kiss of the horse…
12. Sleep in your own way
