Everyone was trying the new thing of putting your baby inside of a pumpkin to take cute pictures. Well here is our take on that trend.
Carving pumpkin for baby to sit in
Choose a design for the cut so your baby won’t get hurt
Squiggly lines work best
2. Choosing a ray of pumpkins for your display
3. Choose how to decorate them
4. Choose what you want to write
5. Get decorations
I used most of the items we had from our wedding and my older sons previous decorations
6. Choose where to have the picture taken
Remember your baby will be cold so unless it’s hot outside, choose an Indoor area.
In front of the fire-place
7. Plan on when you are going to do your photo shoot
When your baby is wake and most happy
8. Taking the photo
Wish for the best
Get camera ready
Limited time once baby is in the pumpkin
Get help putting baby in the pumpkin
May need to put a thin blanket inside the pumpkin or warm the pumpkin up before placing baby in.
Quickly take as many pictures as you can before baby starts to scream. Also use secondary person to get baby’s attention and get them to smile.
Have baby’s favorite toy waiting for them to calm them after.
Step 1: Throw out plans
Step 2: Make new plans
Step 3: Execute plans
We attempted the original plans for the picture inside the pumpkin but it didn’t turn out as we planned. The lighting was all wrong, Ethan was not happy being inside something cold and hard, and everything else didn’t fall into place.
Instead, I waited until it was a nice day outside, put Ethan into his Halloween costume and captured the most adorable smile this little boy has.
