Our Favorite Charming, Inexpensive Baby Pictures

Your baby is adorable.

That's why it's so hard to find a favorite shot for the mantle/mousepad/desktop background among the hundreds of contenders. And now, we have a solution: DIY baby portraits.

We're not talking about the ones taken on a pillow in a photographer's studio. We're talking about the new wave in baby portraits: creative, moving and unique.

The best part about them? They can all be taken at home with a point-and-shoot camera. Instead of paying for time and studio space that could cost you an easy $200, these portraits will practically pay for themselves.

Below, find six of our favorite creative baby portraits. Click on the first image to start the slide show.
