Baby's Cool Closeup

Duration: any

Age: baby

Skill for Bub: Making memories


This chic photograph series puts a modern twist on traditional baby pictures.

You’ve no doubt taken tons of pictures of your baby already. Why not capture each of her beautiful features on single photographs to create an updated keepsake you’re sure to treasure forever!

Begin by laying your baby down on a solid cloth, either outdoors or near a closed window — the idea is to use as much natural light as possible.

Using black and white film, try to fill each photograph with just one part of your baby’s body (e.g. eyes, one ear, one hand, a foot). Have the images enlarged to a 5 by 7 or 8 by 10 size, and matte and frame each photograph separately and hang in a cluster.
