When we think about our baby’s first photos we think picture-perfect, right? Stunning “Anne Geddes-like” images but with our own child! While most parents walk away with dozens of adorable pictures of their bundle of joy, there are some horrifyingly cute newborn photo shoots that prove that, like parenting, a first professional photo shoot can be a wild ride. Here are some of our favorite outtakes.
Take the surprised dad who was preparing for a tender moment with his newborn but instead witnessed a gusher. His face is priceless!
Sometimes a newborn will surprise parents and photographers with something even worse. Yes, this happens. Remember, we said “horrifyingly cute.”
