Tips for Photographing Your Baby in a Pumpkin

  • Make sure the pumpkin is big enough to fit your baby. You don’t want a pumpkin that is too big or too small, so I recommend that you take your baby with you when you go to pick your pumpkin.
  • The best age for a baby to be photographed in a pumpkin is when they can hold their head up.
  • Line blankets on the inside of the pumpkin so the baby does not feel the cold and icky texture of the pumpkin on their skin.
  • Put the pumpkin on a flat surface when photographing your little one.
  • Take pictures from all angles. You can easily crop and edit when you are done.
  • Don’t do this alone! You need a photographer and then someone to get the baby’s attention, in addition to making sure they are safe.
  • Use a variety of props, such as bows or hats.
  • Take a variety of pictures and as many as you can because it may take a lot of pictures before you get the perfect shot.
