  • Look at all the lights!

    The idea behind this charming portrait is simple. Surround your baby with fairy lights and be ready to catch her wonderment as you switch them on.

    Of course, you'll need to take pictures quickly because from the look in her eye, it'll only take a moment to go from "Oooh, they're so pretty" to "Awww, I need to put them in my mouth."

  • Christmas baubles

    The baubles on the tree are usually tantalisingly out of reach for your toddler - so letting her explore is a great opportunity for a Christmas photo.

  • The best present

    Wrap a large nappy box in paper and ribbon and position in front of the tree for this cute portrait idea.

  • A Christmas stocking full of baby

    This has to be the cosiest baby's first Christmas portrait we've seen. Perfect for younger babies who just can't keep their eyes open and won't smile for the camera on demand!

  • Driving home for Christmas

    We just love this photo. Ok, so it's not for baby's first Christmas but with a Christmas tree strapped to the top of his Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car, this little one looks like he's driving home to his family for Christmas!
