Oh, Pinterest, how we love thee. You give us so many creative ideas! From cute crafts to do with our kids, incredible recipes to make for your family, to home decor and more, you have us "pinning" the days away. The website is home to so very many innovate and inventive ideas! That also includes some really amazing pictures. Many photographers share their work on the platform. From beautiful landscapes and portraits, to maternity and beyond. Then, of course are the really adorable baby photo shoots! From wee ones in baskets to adorable babies all swaddled up and sweet. There is certainly no shortage of baby photo shoots to look through.
If you're a new mom with an infant, or are a mom-to-be, you might be looking for ideas on how to make your newborn's photo shoot fabulous! Pinterest is definitely the place to be find an idea that will strike your fancy. You want it to be perfect, you only get this chance once, your newborn's first photos! But every once in awhile, you will come across a bit of hilarity. Sometimes the baby's photo shoot doesn't go as mommy and daddy had planned. The image in their mind differs just a bit from what was actually snapped. No matter, though. Babies are adorable no matter what. These photos are just a start of what will be many funny family memories to come.

This idea is just too cute! Babies always have the cutest little cheeks, you just want to kiss them! It seems that the couple in the bottom photo was trying to recreate the top photo. They wanted a photo of them kissing their sweet new baby's cheeks. But it seems that baby was not having any of this. Instead of a surprised expression, it seems that the little one in the bottom photo seems more agitated than anything by mom and dad kissing him. Maybe the little guy missed his nap time? Even though the photo didn't quite turn out to be Pinterest perfect, these parents do have a cute photo to look back on!

Both these babies are rocking those shades, there is no doubt about that. The baby on the left has what almost looks like a cute little snarl on his face. The baby on the right, though? He does not seem so enthusiastic about what is going on there. He has a look on his face that almost conveys the sentiment of "Mom, why do we have to do this?" It looks like that little guy just wants the whole photo ordeal to be over with. So he can go back to doing baby things, like eating, sleeping and playing. C'mon, mom.

We have to hand it to these photographers, and the babies modeling this snowman look. It is a great way to document your child's growth through photos. Especially during the winter time! The baby on the left seems to be having a grand old time being photographed! The baby on the right is looking less than amused about his mom turning him into a little snowman. He almost has a look of "Why did you do this to me, mom?" He would probably rather be playing in the snow, than pretending to be made of snow. Still, both photos are adorable and we give kudos to the parents for trying to recreate this photo!

This is such a sweet photo to take. Mom and dad holding their brand new bundle of joy. There is nothing like that feeling, that you have brought a new life into this world. It is precious and amazing. Obviously, you want to capture some special moments with your new little on the camera! The baby in the top photo looks quite peaceful, almost as if he could fall asleep in mom and dad's hands. The baby on the bottom photo looks more concerned than anything else! They have a look on their face that almost yells "Hold me tight, guys!"

We know that babies are so cute you could just eat them up! With their rosy cheeks and sweet smiles, whats not to love? This is such a great idea for a Valentine's Day photo shoot! Cover your baby in little kisses! They are our little love bugs, after all! The baby on the left seemed to have really been tickled pink to be covered in kisses! The little one on the right, though? They seem to be just a little bit confused as to what has just happened to them. Nevertheless, we will still keep on kissing our babies!

Oh the familiar baby-in-a-pumpkin photo! If you had your little one around fall, this is a photo opportunity that you just cannot pass up! Our little pumpkins, in a pumpkin! It is just too cute for words. Some babies seem to have a genuinely good time sitting in a pumpkin for a photo. It is new and exciting for them! Others, well, we are pretty sure that they find sitting inside what is essentially a giant squash to be cold and squishy. However, photos like these are ones to keep and to look back on in later years for a good laugh!

We are just gushing over these adorable photos! You want to get your little ones off to an early start, especially in the literary department! If you are a bookworm yourself, this is such a wonderful idea for a photo opportunity! All it takes is a pair of over sized glasses, and some books! That's it! You can do this photo shoot yourself at home! Of course, it will go one of two ways: your little one may fall asleep and be content on those books. On the other hand, it could end up in tears. Still an adorable shot though!

When our little babies turn one year old, it is a huge occasion! Time is flying by, so naturally we want to document this momentous occasion - complete with cake! These families went all out when their little angels turned one! The photo on the right side did a great job of recreating the photo on the left, right down to the pink cake! However, the little girl on the right side seems rather upset at the whole situation. Maybe she didn't like the frosting on the cake?

This is almost an iconic kind of photograph. Your newborn baby in a basket. They are your special delivery, after all! If you are planning on doing a photo shoot like this, make sure your wee one is tired enough to sleep through the session! The baby on the left seems to be serenely dreaming away about bottles and tummy time. The baby on the right side, well they look like they are ready to fight the person who put them in a basket! How dare they! Just look at that adorable grumpy face! They are just too cute for words!

This is such a sweet idea for a photograph! Your little newborn snoozing soundly in a little hammock! Just look at their little feet and tiny hands! They are bundled so cutely! Baby one on the left hand side looks content as content can be. Just sleeping without a care in the world. But baby two on the right may have been put into a hammock too small for their size. They look confused and wondering where in the world are they? Sometimes, it is better to get professional photographs done! They usually have the proper props to make your dream photo session happen!

Oh, Christmas photo shoots! They are probably the most fun! There is just so much possibility with them! Stockings, Santa hats, candy canes and so much more! There are just a ton of ideas out there that you can run with! The babies in the top photo are camera ready, smiles and all. The little ones in the bottom photo seem rather intent on checking out the Christmas decorations, instead of posing for the camera! Can you blame them, though? Everything is so shiny and new to them! Its instinct for them to examine what these shiny baubles and bright lights are!

Little kids are a lot like bunny rabbits. They keep you hopping with their boundless amounts of infinite energy. Except when it is time to take a photo! If you had your baby in the springtime, this is such a wonderful idea for a photography! Especially if it is around Easter time! It seems simple enough! A crocheted or knitted bunny hat with a diaper cover that has a fluffy tail! The baby in the bottom photo does not want one single part of this photo shoot. They seem like a rather sad, than hoppy, err we mean happy bunny.

Balloons are so much fun! Between the bright colors and how light they are, babies can be captivated by them. It looks like someone was turning one year old! The parents wanted a quick photo session with a few balloons in their daughter's crib. They wanted to capture a special moment in her life, a photo that can be framed, or put into a photo album for them to look back on. They did capture a special moment, just not the one they were hoping for. The poor girl looks terrified of these foreign pink objects that have invaded her personal space! Still definitely a photo for the albums to look back on for a good laugh later in her life.

This is such a sweet and fun, not to mention colorful idea for baby's first photos! It embodies fun and whimsy! The little one in the photo on the left seems to be sleeping serenely. Most likely enjoying her Candyland-themed sweet dreams! But the little sweetheart on the right side does not seem to enjoy sitting in a pile of gumballs. It looks like she wants out of there, ASAP. It probably is not too comfortable sitting in a pile of hard candy balls. Perhaps she just hasn't developed her sweet tooth yet? Not to worry, it'll probably grow in soon!

It looks like the stork might have left a special delivery on these parent's doorsteps! These boxes seem to fit these little ones perfectly. This is a very creative photo opportunity! However, the little girl on the right side seems to be kind of confused. She is probably wondering why mom put her in this box and is pointing a camera at her! The little guy on the left side is just snoozing away in his little box. We really think that this is an adorable and creative idea for a one-of-a-kind photo! It is just too cute for words!

This is the classic baby-asleep-on-a-little-rug photo! How adorable are both of these photos? Baby, fast asleep on a faux bear-skin rug. Well, one of the babies is asleep. The baby in the bottom photo seems kind of unsure of the whole situation. They look like they do not want to be a part of this photo shoot at all. It probably is nap time for them, and they are wondering why they are on a rug, instead of doing more important things, like sleep! Or maybe they just don't like the rug. We think it really ties the room together.
It looks like the little guy on the left is a tiny Marvel fan already! He seems quite engrossed in the adventures of Spider-Man. The cutie on the right looks like he is not sure of what he has just seen. You know how baby books can be, they can get pretty action-packed! The cow goes moo? I don't know, mom, that just seems kind of sketchy. But, if you say so, it must be true. We just can't get over his adorable little romper though! So sweet!

While these kids may not be newborns, this picture is still hilarious! This was likely meant to be a photo for a Christmas card. While the trio on the top seems to be all smiles, the bottom kids seem anything but joyful. It looks like they would rather be anywhere else than on their front step taking photos. Both photos are equally adorable, though! We love this photo idea and just may have to try it out with our own little ones! Because they totally would make great Christmas cards! Let's just hope they are a little bit cheerier, though!
If your little one is due around Easter time, in the spring, this is a great opportunity for their first Easter photos! The baby on the left is probably a little milk drunk and that is why they looks so serene. But that little baby on the left looks like he really does not like to be in a basket full of Easter eggs! Plus, he looks determined that he would not show his face for the photograph! He was making sure that mom could not capture his cuteness. Not too sure if there will be any "hopping down the bunny trail" for this little guy, though.

What a sweet way to capture a precious memory! Have your little one wrapped lightly in their favorite blanket! The parents totally nailed this photo shoot! There was just one thing that decided to make it's way into the photo, spit up. It is something that can happen at literally anytime with babies. So, it is kind of a risk you take when you are shooting baby photos. It just seems that they got the timing just right on this photo when the baby was spitting up. But hey, at least the family will have a hilarious photo to look back on when their child is older!

Woah, baby! Putting your wee one under a blanket and snapping a photo is a pretty cute shot to get! But the baby on bottom seems legitimately angry over his photo being taken! Just look at his little face! There is so much expression here! He has got little forehead wrinkles! His eyes convey anger and upset at having his photo taken! He almost looks like a little old man here! Clearly, he did not know he was going to get his portrait taken, and is rather upset that it is happening. But what a shot to get! This is definitely one for the photo books!

Oh, boy, Christmas time is a fun and exciting time! Especially so when you have a new little one to share the celebration with! I mean, babies are the best gift in the whole world! Their first Christmas is so exciting! From getting personalized ornaments to festive photo shoots, there is so much to do! While putting baby in a fun and festive box may seem exciting, some babies just are not into it, like the little chap in the bottom photo! He seems a bit upset that he is sitting in a present box! But that adorable little face makes it all worth it!

How sweet it is to be loved by them! These sweetie pies are adorable in this Valentine's Day themed photo shoot! We love the props and the giant Hershey's Kiss! It is just too precious for words! But it seems like the little angel in the bottom photo is totally not feeling the love here. It looks like they would much rather be having tummy time or getting a bottle. They might even be confused about all of these colors and props around them! Nonetheless, both photos are as sweet as sweet can be! Kisses and hugs all around!
This is a really cute idea for your little one! Typically, one of the first solid foods that they will eat is Cheerios cereal! So, this is a great photo opportunity to mark that milestone! However, it looks like the little girl in the right side photo is not liking her Cheerios. Mom even completed it with milk and a spoon! But she is not at all interested in sitting in a bowl of cereal. To be frank, we don't blame her. While Cheerios are absolutely delicious for breakfast, we would not want to sit in a bowl of them.

Little boys and their toys! This adorable photo shoot is so creative! Baby in a truck? We can't handle the cuteness overload going on over here! The baby in the top photo is happily snoozing away, probably dreaming of Tonka trucks and construction toys. The little guy in the bottom photo seems a bit unsure of what to do. It also looks like he may be a little too big to fit on that toy truck! But this is a hilarious shot that will definitely keep the family laughing for years to come. Let's just hope mom and dad don't bring out the baby photos during his first date!

What a sweet, sweet idea for a photograph! All three of your beautiful children in one amazing photo! In theory, it sounds amazing. But when it came time to execute the said photo shoot, everyone kind of just look smushed into one another! Not to mention the littlest of the bunch spit up at just the right time! However, it looks like the kids are taking it all in good stride and having fun with the whole thing! Spit up can be wiped off, but memories are forever. All three kids will definitely be looking back on this photo in 15 years time and laughing heartily at it!

While the little one on the left is pretty perfectly posed, it seems as though the little one on the right just cannot keep their hands under their chin for a photo! They must be too sleepy to even go through with it! It's alright, we feel you, kid. That is how we pretty much feel every Monday morning! Who wants to get out of bed, anyway, right? We will definitely take nap time back! Baby might want to sleep now, but just wait until they get older and you tell them it is time for bed! You'll have the most energetic kid in the world!

Sometimes you are the bunny, and sometimes you are the carrot! The little cutie in the left photo is dressed up as a bunny rabbit, sweetly holding onto a carrot. Presumably because it is probably springtime and Easter is likely on it's way. The sweetheart in the photo on the right side seems to be dressed up as a carrot, rather than being a bunny holding a carrot. Even though the little one seems to be a bit weirded out by having a carrot on their face, it looks like they are taking it all in good stride. Hey, we give mom props for creativity on this one!
So it seems that not every little boy likes to wear bow-ties! Probably the same thing with the buttoned up shirt. Their preferred attire is usually a onesie or a romper that they can crawl, play, and roll around in! This is evidenced by the photo you see on the right side. This little guy does not seem happy at all that he is here taking pictures. It looks like he would rather be anywhere else. His angry little scowl is just so adorable, though, we can't help but giggle! That little frowny face is just too cute for words!
Ah, the beloved Christmas season photo sessions! From stockings to ornaments, to trees and wreaths, there are so many props that you can use for your creative photo session! But there is probably nothing more iconic than a Santa hat! But wait, who turned out the lights?! Where did everything go? The cutie on the left has a perfect-fitting Santa hat. However, the baby's hat on the right seems just a little too big for their little head! This will definitely elicit some laughs from family members! It would be hilarious to put it on next year's Christmas cards! The family would get a hoot out of it!

We just can't get enough of these little sweet-teas! Get it? This is quite the clever idea to create the illusion that your little one is sitting in a mug! The baby girl on the left seems to be pretty content in her cup. But the little girlie on the right does not seem so happy that she is in mom's coffee mug! She is not interested in any caffeinated beverage to keep her awake! She wants nap time, and she wants it now! Or maybe she got unsweetened tea? Who knows, but this is one adorable shot for sure!

Sugar and spice make everything nice. Right? That is how the saying goes, anyway! This is a super cute way to introduce your newest little addition to the world! You have finally finished "baking" that bun in the oven! Now it is time to share them with the world! But in this photo it seems that the little ones in the right photo are not feeling the whole bakers vibe going on in the photo. Even with cupcakes within arms reach of them! Sometimes even cupcakes can't cure tiredness, which is probably what these little ones were when this shot was taken!

Everyone knows that when a baby turns one, it is a big event! There is plenty of cake to go around, especially baby's first cake: the smash cake! This is where all the great photo opportunities come in! It is so much fun to watch baby dig into their first cake! All that frosting and sweet goodness, the kids love it! Well, it depends. It seems that the little man in the right photo does not seem all that happy to have all that frosting all over him! Poor little guy, he probably just wants some fresh clothes after digging into his cake!

These little ladybugs are positively adorable! The crocheted outfits are just the sweetest, and are perfect for a springtime photo session with your little one! However, if it is one thing that we have learned from all of these other photos, you have got to catch your little one when they are ready to nap to start taking photos! Because it looks like the little ladybug in the bottom photo is just about ready to crawl off and away! They certainly are not interested in mom's photography antics! If they are just about ready to fall asleep, you can put them in whatever outfit you want, and by the time you get behind the camera, you'll have a sleeping baby.

Oh my goodness, the cuteness overload here is just insane! We have here two beautiful little girls! Both are wearing flowers in their hair and, wait, little miss in the right photo does not seem too happy! That outfit she is wearing though has us wanting to go dress shopping now! Is it the big flower in her hair, the shoes? Maybe she feels this outfit is not fashion-forward at all. She is certainly expressing her opinion with just her adorable little face! Those cheeks are just so cute! Both of these photos are incredibly adorable in their own special way!
It is always a fun milestone to take your baby outside to look at the freshly fallen snow. You bundle them up in their snowsuit and gently place them in the snow. Of course, they will either love it or they will hate it. It looks like the cutie in the top photo is having a blast in the snow. However, in the bottom photo the two adorable kiddos do not seem to be having very much fun with it at all. It looks like they would rather be someplace warm and cozy with a nice bottle of milk and a nap!

These dads certainly have their hands full, literally! They are both really good sports about taking a photo like this one! Photos like this are so sweet and full of love! You can tell that both guys in each photo are very proud daddies. It looks like when the family on the right tried to recreate the photo on the left, chaos ensued! One girl certainly does not want to be in the picture, and the girl on top of dad's shoulders is hanging onto the doorframe so she doesn't fall! Nonetheless, these photos are both awesome because they capture the pure joy of being a dad.

It looks like Fido wanted to get in on the holiday fun in the top photo! The little one seems mesmerized by the beautiful white Christmas lights and shiny baubles in front of them. The baby in the bottom photo? Well, he seems to be absolutely horrified at something (we're assuming Frosty), judging by the look on his face. It doesn't seem like the snowman had any ulterior motives. Perhaps the little guy is fashion-forward and did not approve of Frosty's style. But his little face is pure hilarity! That look is just too precious, and I bet his parents are glad they caught it on film! This is definitely one to keep for the slideshow at his wedding!

It seems that babies do not take too kindly to being placed inside fruits, vegetables or gourds of any kind. If we have learned anything about babies and photos, it is that they aren't keen on sitting in food. It is probably rather uncomfortable, and most likely pretty squishy in there, given the look on the baby's face. Their cute little expression conveys a bit of confusion as to why they are in a fruit rind. It looks like he wants to get out of there as soon as possible! Perhaps even a fresh change of clothes so they don't smell like watermelon for the rest of the day.

Expectations versus reality: swaddling your baby isn't always going to make them a happy baby. The little one in the photo on the right side seems to have a big problem with this. They probably want to be free of their little towel prison so they can do baby things! That tiny face says everything! It says that they will not be confined by cotton fibers and they will find a way out of it! Grumpy faces on babies are everything! It looks like the tiny one is going to fight when he gets out of there! Chill baby, chill.
Which baby photoshoot fail made you LOL? Let us know below in the comments!
