Monthly Photo Love: Babies in Frames

Now that I have another Sticky Bellies' baby of my own to photograph with a sticker each month, I'm having lots of fun scouring Pinterest and other websites to find inspiration for my monthly baby photos. While I try to share at least a few ideas a week on our Facebook page, I thought The Belly Blog might be a better place to document the fun things you can do with your monthly photoshoots.
Today, I am loving babies in frames!
When my daughter was born, I was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest from this blog. I bought the Ikea Ung Drill frame ($29.99) and spray painted it in a glossy bubblegum pink. For her newborn photoshoot, we removed the glass and put my little 5 lb. baby girl inside the frame and created some pretty adorable (and unique) photos. Unfortunately, I completely forgot about the frame when it came time for her one month picture. It would have been so much fun to watch her fill out the space in that frame throughout her first year with her Sticky Bellies! (And how cute would it be when she eventually got to an age where she could hold the frame up in front of her and peek through it?) I'm not having another baby anytime soon, so hopefully one of our fabulous customers will give this a try with his/her own monthly baby photos.

Here's an adorable customer photo using a similar idea. (Photo credit: Azaleah V. Photography) A simple bronze frame provides visual interest and makes for a more "artsy" and unique monthly photo. Combining a picture frame and a cute rug under the baby with your monthly onesie stickers makes for one fantastic picture!
