Lay your baby on a plain sheet and decorate it with fresh flowers, pop them in vases, or scatter petals around.

Using flowers adds a sweet, natural vibe to baby pics, capturing that spring feeling all while staying indoors!

2. Make a Flower Basket

This is one of my favorite spring baby photoshoot ideas because it’s like you’re putting your little one in the middle of a blooming garden.

Just grab a basket, fill it with colorful flowers, and gently place your baby inside, or vice versa, whichever’s more convenient for you.

If you want flowers as props and want them to last longer than fresh flowers, you can always get some artificial ones:

3. Use a Plain Basket with Floral Details

Instead of making a big flower basket, this one focuses on the smaller details. You can create a spring motif with details like a flower crown and a flower swaddle.

Grab a soft blanket, wrap your baby in a flower swaddle, and you’ve got yourself a precious setup for some adorable spring baby photos at home!

4. Create a Floral Scene on a Photo of Your Baby

If you don’t have the time to get props, make your own!

Take a clear photo of your baby against a neutral backdrop, and let your imagination flow as you spruce up the image with playful doodles of spring-themed elements.

5. Mom and Baby Strike a Pose

Holding your baby close to your head shows off your sweet bond, and I love how they did this here!

Find a well-lit area at home, use a plain backdrop if possible (like a blanket), gently position your baby close to your face, and add a leaf headband for an adorable touch.

6. Place Your Baby on a Colorful Crib Sheet

If you want to make your springtime baby photo pop, place them on a colorful crib sheet! It adds a cheerful vibe while making your little one stand out! I love our safari crib sheet, but one with florals would be the perfect indoor spring photoshoot backdrop for a baby girl!

7. Bathing in Blooms

If you want to snap something unique, place your baby in a mini bathtub in front of your favorite house plants. Totally Instagram-worthy!

8. Find a Wall of Wisteria

Wisteria not only smells good but also looks good โ€” making for a stunning backdrop.

The cascading purple flowers add a touch of magic to your baby’s photos, making them feel like they’re straight out of a fairytale!

9. Make Pictures More Scenic with Bubbles

Bubbles not only make photos more whimsical, but they can also grab your baby’s attention and bring out laughs!

And you know what that means: easier photographing and a happier baby โ€” the best of both worlds for any parent!

10. Photograph Your Baby On a Scenic Bridge

Taking photos of your baby on a scenic bridge adds a sense of adventure and exploration to the pictures.

Plus, the bridge serves as a picturesque backdrop while providing a unique setting that captures the essence of springtime!

11. Create a Frame Out of Blooming Branches

I love this one because all you really need to do is angle it right!

Blooming branches provide a lovely backdrop for mom and baby, adding a natural and seasonal touch to the photos, making them feel fresh and vibrant.

12. Sunshine and an Open Field

Sunshine and an open field make for the perfect spring baby photoshoot backdrop!

And if you’ve got a baby girl, I love how lace looks against sunshine. It creates a whimsical look for your baby while giving the photos a dreamy feel.

13. Make a Blooming Tree Your Background

Using a blooming tree as your background brings in fresh, vibrant colors and a natural feel, creating a charming setting for your baby!

14. Capture Springtime Magic in a Flower Field

Nothing says spring quite like a flower field! And putting babies in blooming flowers creates an adorable contrast that’s sure to melt hearts and create beautiful photos!

15. Close-Up with Flowers/Plants

Taking close-up photos with flowers or plants adds a spring-y touch to your baby’s pictures while capturing all their adorable little details.

16. Let Your Baby Sit on a Tiny Wooden Chair/Bench

Tiny wooden chairs and benches make for cute props, so if you have some lying around, use them! They’ll create an adorable scene of your baby enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, making for heartwarming photos.

17. Close-Up of Your Baby Holding Flowers

I love seeing my baby explore his surroundings, especially in nature! Why not use this to your advantage?

Get up close to some flowers and let your little one touch them to capture not only a beautiful shot โ€” but also a memory.

18. Sitting in a Chair Outside

I really like this simple setup because it’s something we all can recreate at home. Add a stuffed animal and capture them interacting with it as well!

(I also love the bunny theme going on here for Easter! Keep on scrolling… there’s an Easter section in this post as well!)

19. Give the Scenery its Own Moment

While I love a close-up baby photoshoot, it’s fun to step back and include the whole background if you’re somewhere beautiful!

Spring Baby Photoshoot Ideas with Pastel Colors

No colors say spring more than pastels! Here are fun ideas to try while embracing this color palette:

20. Pastel-Colored Flat Lay

A pastel-colored flat lay makes a nice scene with soft, delicate colors that remind you of the freshness of the season.

21. Pastel Balloons for a Spring Birthday Cake Smash

Using pastel balloons for a spring birthday cake smash indoors adds a playful and festive touch, bringing extra fun and color to the celebration.

They make for a charming DIY spring-themed backdrop! I promise you that balloon arches are easier to make than you think. If you have an electric balloon pump and a balloon kit, they practically make themselves! This is the balloon kit I used, and you can find a more colorful pastel kit here:

22. Embrace a Monochromatic Pastel Color Palette

You can make your baby the star of the photo without overwhelming the scene by embracing a monochromatic pastel color palette.

Spring Baby Photoshoot Outfit Ideas

Sometimes, the right outfit is all we need to turn a regular photo into a spring snapshot! Here are some cute outfits I recommend for your spring baby photoshoot!

23. Wear Matching Colors

If you’re looking for an excuse to play dress-up with your baby, here’s your sign!

Matching colors with your baby creates a cute and coordinated look while highlighting the bond between you and your mini-me!

24. Use A Flower Crown

Get or make a flower crown, place it on your little one’s head, hold your baby close, and snap some heartwarming at-home pics! Easy, cute, and all about spring.

Here’s a tip to get another sweet shot with a flower crown without disturbing your baby’s nap: lay them on a cozy pillow, gently tilt them on their side, and prop their hand under their chin.

25. Dress Them Up in Pastels

Dressing your baby boy in pastel suspenders adds a cute, stylish element to your spring photos! It creates a playful and adorable look that captures the joy and light-heartedness of spring!

26. Baby Blossoms in Spring Florals

When it comes to spring, you can never go wrong with floral patterns โ€” babies are no exception!

The outfit’s vibrant colors and cheerful patterns add a lively and fresh touch to the photos. And did you notice the flowers tucked into her socks? Too cute!

27. Mom in a Floral Dress
