25 Birthday Photo Shoots Ideas You Must Try

Birthdays are for most people the most exciting time of a year. It means a lot of different things to people. Some of which are: the beginning of a new cycle, maturity, new opportunities, and a new thrust to see life differently. Your birthday happens once in a year, and you want that one day to be very different from other days.

If you are seeking fresh ideas to make your next birthday a blast, then we have gathered a few to make sure you have the time of your life at your next birthday photo shoot. For the ideas we are going to be sharing, we would love to break them into two segments. The first will be the ones you can take alone, and the other will be the picture ideas you can try out with your friends or family. Here are some ideas for photos you can take by yourself.

Photo Ideas You Can Handle on Your Own

Tip #1

Use the Props

This is undoubtedly something you should try out since you are deciding to make your birthday a fascinating one. You can add unique properties to the background instead of using a simple background for the picture. This adds more beauty and style to the image.

Tip #2

Bubbles

No filter comes close to have real-life bubbles saturate the entire background of your photo shoot. Your photographer or couple of friends can help blow the bubbles at the spot where you’re standing. All you will need to do is add a pose and the final picture will turn out very beautiful.

A Trip In the Park

Swimming time

If you want to go for something extra, this is for you.  Although not a lot of people do it for birthdays, you can do a beautiful swimming scene for your shoot. You can either take a picture, while in the pool or coming out of the pool. Try adding some extra props like balloons of your favorite colors too.

Tip #5

True Sportsmanship

Another beautiful idea you can use for your birthday photo shoot is to demonstrate your loyalty to the sport you are passionate about. If it’s baseball, then you can dress yourself up in your baseball hat and top. If it’s soccer, you should find yourself a decent jersey to grace the picture, and don’t forget to wear a beautiful smile.

Balloons and Props

Balloons are essential to celebrating birthdays. It is almost like a tradition to celebrate birthdays with balloons. You can be creative by choosing matching balloons with your dress. You can choose a studio, outdoor space or any location. You should try to hang some while leaving some on the floor.

Age Sign

How old are you? 25, 32 or 40? It does matter what your age is. You can get adorable figure balloons to represent your age alongside the balloons you place in your background.

Tip #8

Flower Crown

Going a little back in time, remember when people would make a crown of flowers and wear it around their heads? You can also replicate that same thing for your birthday photoshoot. You can either get real flowers woven into a circle that can fit your head, or just buy an artificial flower crown and looks stunning in it.

Tip #9

Balloons For the Date of Birth

Try using balloons that tell your date of birth, for instance, “1990” this is an exciting idea, and it makes people think a little bit when they try to calculate how old you are.

Tip #10

Nature

No photo shoot prop holds a candle to nature. If you are confused as to which prop to add to your photo shoot, you can use all that nature has to offer and you are good to go. You can use trees in the background, decorated with a “happy birthday and your name in it” tag. The idea is to have fun that day.

A Shoot of You In the Air

Now, your birthday is meant to show and express how happy you are.

Photo Ideas With Friends and Family

Tip #1

A picture With Your Siblings

Having your sibling by your side while you take your photo shoot is a truly remarkable gift, it could mean two things; one is that you are reminding them that you are older than they are, on the other hand, it could mean you are growing fast enough to understand them. Make striking poses and let your happiness be felt through the pictures.

You can also use a different idea of the locations you want to use.

A Trip To Your Favourite Location

Just as you can choose different locations, you can also choose one of your favorite spots for that one special day.

Next, you can contact your photographer about the location, if you don’t want a studio and make the experience rewarding.

Duck Face With Friends

This works best with friends, get all your friends together and make a list of funny faces you would like to add apart from taking normal pictures. You can rehearse the funny faces, but it is more fun when you let things happen naturally. You will be very glad about the results that would come out when you see them.

Moment of Action

There are two ways to get such moments, either you create one or have your personal photographer be on the lookout till he gets the perfect moment and takes a beautiful photo shoot. Part of the moments could be when you all jump into a pool or any other bonding action.
