Your baby girl is a gift to you and everyone she’ll meet in life! We love this simple style of tying a pretty ribbon around a sleeping newborn. Accent your gorgeous girl’s baby head with a simple elastic headband and flower hair clip to make this photo extra-sweet.

Outfit your little darling in some dainty ruffled baby bloomers and a sweet lace headband and frilly hair bow to give her something fun to look at as she explores her reflection! Your photographer will no doubt capture some memorable shots of her admiring herself! (After all, what’s not to love?)

A black-and-white outfit on baby is simple and classic.  These colors bring out the best of baby’s natural beauty! The zebra tutu in this ensemble makes this pose trendy, too. Adding some grown-up pearls only emphasizes how little your baby still is! This pose is perfectly accessorized with a matching tutu top, crochet headband, and Gerber daisy flower hair clip.

Smash cake photos are all the rage for first birthday portraits – and it’s easy to see why! What’s more adorable than capturing the mess and wonder that goes along with that first taste of cake and frosting? You’ll cherish these marvelously messy photos forever! For this type of portrait, it’s best to keep baby’s top bare, but make sure to dress her bottom in some cute ruffly bloomers and leg warmers and accessorize her hairstyle (or lack thereof) with a crochet headband and Gerber daisy flower hair clip or hair bow!
