I know that once you gave it some thought you began to realize that of all the videos and photos that you have taken of kids, you never took the first photo. Why should you? You have the freshly inked footprints that they made of your newborn immediately after your infant’s birth and how many more pics of baby feet could you need? This is one of those situations where you didn’t realize how rare an item is until you start looking for it.
Never fear, necessity is indeed the mother of invention and even if you haven’t loaded roll upon roll of black and white or color film with pics of baby footprints, we can come up with a few images for you. You can use whatever color ink that you want; baby boy blue footprints are pretty baby girl pink footprints. The best way to proceed is to first dig out the official picture of a baby footprint that you got from the hospital along with baby’s birth certificate. These footprints are a precious baby keepsake that you want to preserve at all costs, but if the footprints are clear a quick scan won’t hurt a thing. The images may turn out good enough that these will supply you and your friends with a clear picture of a baby footprint. Once the pics are scanned, any smudges can quickly be erased with some good photo editing software.

If you don’t have any babies, you’re going to have to get more creative in your hunt for that picture of a baby footprint.

You may have to rely on the kindness of strangers to get a really good picture of a baby footprint. Make a trip to the discount store and get basic baby footprint supplies. I’m not talking about a baby footprint kit with plaster, decorative frames and all that stuff. I mean get some heavy card stock and an ink roller or pad with washable ink. Call a daycare and offer to show up and have a baby footprint photo session with a set of pics for each participant! First, offer to show any and all identification and state your reasons for needing a picture of a baby footprint so that the daycare workers won’t be afraid of you! You may want to have a permission slip already worded and typed for the daycare to give parents to sign as they need to know ahead of time if baby is coming home with inky little feet! This method of getting a graphic, image or picture of a baby footprint and handprint would be the most time consuming, difficult and for those reasons my last resort, but if you need those baby footprint pics and can’t get them any other way this may be your only recourse!
