Photography Themes for Toddlers
As kids grow, it is important to take as many pictures as possible. Preserving the fleeting moments during childhood provides memories that will last forever. However, this doesn’t mean parents shouldn’t have fun with the photo shoots. Some of the ideas below are among the most popular ideas for creative toddlers that want to go on an adventure.
Princesses and Fairies
Little girls absolutely love stories about princesses and fairies, hoping to one day grow up as a princess in a world of magical enchantment. While all parents know that may not be a possibility, they can still give their daughter a beautiful, enchanted adventure while the camera follows. Extravagant fairy or princess costumes can be purchased, while interesting props (such as toadstools) can be a fun DIY project.
Cowboys and the Wild West
Little boys absolutely love cowboys and wild west themes. The toddler can be dressed up as a sheriff with his very own badge, and he can gallop away on his stick horse while looking for the outlaws. With a bit of rope, some boots, and a piece of tumbleweed, the wild west can quickly come back to life.
Vintage photography shoots are currently trending, especially vintage travel shoots. An old suitcase, a big fancy sun hat, heels, pearls, a flat cap, wagon, and an old pickup truck are perfect props for a vintage toddler set up. The photographs can be edited later to add vintage filters or overlays, or they can simply be enjoyed in true, raw color.
Out at the Ball Game
Sports are a wonderful theme for photography, especially baseball. Ball game shoots only require a baseball, toddler MLB clothing, a baseball mitt, some cracker jacks, and possibly a trophy! If the shoot can be done on a baseball diamond, it will add to the authenticity of the photographs. This particular shoot would be wonderful for families who are big fans of baseball or who have family involved with a local baseball team.
Setting up a photography appointment for a toddler can be incredibly fun, especially with the creative imaginations that kids have. If the toddler is choosy, he or she can give opinions on cool ideas for their pictures. Perhaps they want to get lost in a prehistoric world full of dinosaurs, or they might want to have one done at the park while fighting dragons.
