These Christmas newborn shoots are so beautiful

For some parents, staging a Christmas-inspired newborn photo shoot is as simple as booking a photographer and praying that bub doesn’t wee all over the props.

But for other parents, it’s not that simple, especially if your newborn is still in neonatal care.

This is why nonprofit organisation March of Dimes started their ‘Greatest Gifts’ program which sees professional photographers enter the neonatal unit at Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City.

Here they photograph critical ill premature newborns wrapped as ‘precious gifts’.

The greatest gifts

Earlier this week several newborns were gift wrapped and photographed as part of the program to help parents cherish this amazing time and to make holiday memories with their little ones.

Decked out in festive knitted hats and large bows, the babies are the picture of Christmas cheer.

Tis the season to take ridiculously cute photos of your baby

Of course, it’s not just premature newborns that partake in the Christmas cuteness. Bored Panda recently shared some of their favourite Christmas-inspired photoshoots that will melt your heart.

If you have a newborn in tow, then this is a Christmas tradition bandwagon that you need to jump aboard on. And all it takes is a neutral background, an adorable knitted hat or outfit and a newborn who is willing to pose for a few sweet snaps.
