8 Baby Photo Shoot Ideas and Venues in San Francisco

Baby photo shoots are all the rage right now, and for good reason. Blink and your baby will be a toddler who is far less likely to sit still for a camera. While the final product is fun, funny and entertaining, so much more goes into a photo shoot than just pointing and clicking (and convincing a baby to smile on cue). You need great lighting, the right equipment, a solid camera, and, most importantly, the perfect venue and background for your adorable subject. The right photo shoot venue can set the tone, give your crew a piece of mind, and help set a peaceful environment for the baby themselves. Check out our favorite baby photo shoot ideas and locations in San Francisco.
