St. Patrick's Day Photoshoot Ideas for Boys

Planning a St. Patrick's Day photoshoot for your little guy? Whether you are working with your favorite professional photographer or DIY, props and accessories can make your pics come out amazing!

Of course, we recommend starting with an adorable outfit from Cuddle Sleep Dream.  There are a bunch of adorable St. Patrick's Day outfit ideas for boys, including St. Patrick's Day leggings, onesies, and even a green cardigan. 

Here are some ideas to take your St Patty's Day photoshoot game to the next level.

1. Shoes

Chances are, you don't have green sneakers in your closet.  Your little man could always go barefoot, but these green moccs from JaxHoo are crazy cute.  (They are what Leo is wearing in these pictures.)

You also can't go wrong with green Chucks!


2. Hat

You can't pass up the opportunity to make him look like a little leprechaun! This crochet newborn set from Lil Chic Me even comes with a pot of gold.

If he's a little bigger, this glitter leprechaun hat from Pride and Princess would look great.

And if St. Patrick's Day is his birthday theme, this glitter crown from Sprinkle Party Co is crazy cute!

3. Toys

The hardest part of a photoshoot can be keeping the little guy happy.  We always have puffs or cheerios on hand (small and no face mess!). But it's also a great idea to have a novel (i.e. new and interesting!) toy on hand that will actually look good in pictures. 

These felt St Patrick's Day goodies from Rainbow Smile Shop are adorable and will be sure to keep his hands busy. 

I also love wooden toys because they don't distract.  But if you catch a glimpse of this wooden teether from Wooden Caterpillar in pictures, it's a shamrock!

Bigger boys could even do a pot of gold and coins

4. Background

If you are using a professional photographer, they might have a fun backdrop - but always ask to be sure! You might need to bring your own banner or accessories. 

Picking up helium balloons in a few shades of green and gold will look great, be fun to play with, and are easy on the budget.

Banners are great because you can use them as seasonal home decor after the shoot. 

This simple shamrock banner from Heartfelt Party is really cute and would brighten up a plain white background nicely.  Add a few balloons and you're all set.
