By Anthony Thurston on October 21st 2013

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays to celebrate, and that became even more true with the arrival of my two children. That first Halloween costume and those first Halloween images are some of the cutest images and memories that you will have of your children.

From cute hand knit costumes, to elaborate and freaky sets, Halloween themed newborn photography is as much fun to set up as it is to see. Check out these awesomely adorable newborn costumes and props to help inspire those of you who will be introducing new members of the family to Halloween this year.

Where Can You Get Them?

All of the above featured newborn Halloween costumes/props are available to be ordered on Etsy. The stores in which we found these items are bitOwhimsy, JerribecaHats2, AllBabyBotique, and CherryCreekCrochet. If you like what you see I suggest that you order your props asap, most of these kinds of products are hand made and as such take time to make. It may already be too late, but if you order soon you may still be able to get them in time for Halloween.

    How did you get a newborn to support its own head like that, as, as far as I am aware a baby in incapable of that pose…!?

      You are correct – that is a photoshop technique of combining a baby in that pose with a shot of their face sleeping. Became popular just a few years ago.
