Leprechaun-green might not be your favorite shade, and that’s okay. More neutral tones, such as sage green, make for a beautiful picture, especially when paired with some clover in the same color.

I don’t know what it is about babies, but it seems like the less clothes they have, the happier they are. If that sounds like your little one, throw on some shiny shamrocks, grab a green bow and call it a day – you’ll probably get some of the best smiles this way!

No bowtie too big, no baby too small! Baby photos are always fun to look at, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get in the picture every now and then! Try some matching clothes or accessories to pull the whole thing together (and show off how tiny your baby is compared to you!)

What I Need For DIY St. Patrick’s Day-Themed Photo Shoot?

Honestly, if you have a baby, a camera, and something green, your St. Patrick is good to do. Having backdrop props or imagery like rainbows, gold coins, clovers, balloons, and leprechaun gear like hats, shoes, and beards can really help you get the themed look you want. Put a letter board with a unique quote and you’re good to go!

You will likely get the best photos from your babies and toddlers if they have eaten recently, not close to bedtime, there are no major distractions, and the room is at a comfortable temperature (especially for babies in onesies or diapers). Good luck, and don’t forget – I’d love to see the results in the comments!
