There’s no better duo than parents and their desire to click their babies in every outfit possible.
Each event is another reason to dress up their child in something amazing and click photographs. After going through hundreds of them ourselves, we can’t blame them for doing so! Babies DO look cute in all outfits!
The next major event up on the calendar is 15th August, so here are 5 Independence Day baby photoshoot ideas to get some aww-worthy pictures.
The States of India
The first of the patriotic baby photoshoot ideas revolve around the states of India. Our country has 28 states and 8 union territories, each having its unique style and culture.
Pick a state (or a few) and delve deep into it—what do they wear, what do they celebrate, what’s their speciality, etc. Once you gather enough information, clad your baby in their colours, for instance, if you chose Punjab, you can dress them up in a traditional Punjabi kurta or salwar suit. Add a few elements of the Indian tricolour in the background to add a patriotic touch.
Dedicate it to the Farmers
India is a proud exporter of a wide variety of grains. It is the hard work of farmers across the country that makes it possible for us to enjoy such a surplus. Let’s celebrate them by dedicating one to the farmers.
Transform your baby into the cutest farmer with the right outfit and cardboard cutout tools to complete the look. You can keep a few bowls around them filled with grains, pulses and fruits to click a front shot. Another idea is to use those grains to mimic our flag’s shape and colour and place the baby near that masterpiece.
Our National Symbols
A baby photoshoot with national symbols is a unique idea that can get some great photographs.
India has a grand total of 17 national symbols, many of which can be used in patriotic baby photoshoot ideas. Here’s a brief of a few and what you can do with them:
- Jana Gana Mana: You can spell the first sentence or the first few words of our national anthem on the background of the photos.
- Mango: Surround the baby with our national fruit and let it interact with it. This is a great idea to click candid shots.
- Ganga: Use a light blue-coloured ‘chunni’ to depict our national river and place it gently over the baby to click a dreamy photo.
- Indian Banyan: If you have access to one, place the baby near our national tree at the lap of mother nature for a soothing picture.
- Lotus: The flower that blooms amidst the mud, place our national flower near the baby (bonus points if you can match the outfit according to the flower’s colour).
Clad in Tricolour
We thought the most significant national symbol deserved a special place on our list. Time to pay our respect to our national flag, its colours and all it stands for in this Indian flag-themed baby photoshoot idea.
The Indian flag comprises saffron, white and green with a navy Ashoka Chakra in the middle. Use any one, or a combination of these colours on the baby’s outfit. If you are going with the former, place a few tiranga props around them for contrast.
Our Rich Heritage
India is a land of many religions and languages, boasting a prosperous culture & heritage. Up next in our list of patriotic baby photoshoot ideas are poses that celebrate our rich heritage.
You can click multiple pictures in outfits of the six major or other minor religions of our country. Experiment with unique props in the background, like the Taj Mahal that pay special homage to our architectural heritage. A great idea is to use an overhead shot to cover as many distinct elements as possible along with the subject.
Arranging so many outfits, along with the tiranga and other things, is a tedious job. Not just that, you will have to figure out a unique background after each set of pictures.
