It may seem like every picture you take of a dimpled, smiling, mushy-cheeked baby is too adorable for words, but the truth is that those perfect shots, with that soft, cherub-worthy lighting, take patience and skill. We’ve found Instagram’s best baby photographers who make it look easy… and oh-so-darn-adorable.
1. @zoehiiglinewbornphotographer: If we could give every babe around the world a little hat, we totally would. And then we’d pinch all of the cheeks.
2. @best_pictures_of_newborns: This feed features all of the cutest baby pics on Instagram. It’s the perfect place to find inspiration for your own baby photos.
3. @bloomingcolorphoto: This photographer not only captures endless grins in idyllic natural settings, but he’s a teenager. We’re pretty sure he’s got a glowing career ahead of him.
4. @allybr08: There’s nothing like a candid gaze into some truly baby blues to ignite a unanimous “Awwwwww.”
5. @jessicahansennewborns: Who says baby photographers have to stick with pastel palettes? We’re loving the bold, saturated colors this photographer uses on her sets.
6. @bildervollerliebe: This kid is on to something… if we dig into the entire cake with our hands, we may not have to share. But we also won’t look like an angel doing it.
7. @jennapayn: This photographer captures newlyweds and sunsets, but mostly just babies, babies and more babies.
8. @kathvphotography: We didn’t know there was a flower crown competition, but it looks like there was, and this baby totally won it.
9. @photosbykierstyn: Move over Anne Geddes, these angelic babes wrapped in cozy knits are all we want to see on our calendars from now on.
10. @nicoleoneilphotography: From tiny ones to toddlers, this photographer captures some great moments.
How’d you find your baby photographer? We’d love to know in the comments!
