Baby photoshoots might seem like a walk in a park, but that can not be farther from the truth. Yes, we agree that babies are cute and adorable, but try to put your snot-nosed, shrieking and wriggling bundle of joy into the right position for a cute baby picture. Suddenly, a walk in a park turns into a ride on the highway to hell.

And Pinterest with the gorgeous ideas and perfectly executed photos of cute babies might trick you into taking the splendidly staged baby pictures yourself. But it's easy to forget the amount of hard work, good luck, digital wizardry and skill that goes into creating a perfect photograph, especially when the subject is babies.

Take a look at these baby photos compiled by Bored Panda for example. They look so simple, right? What could be so hard about getting a beautiful picture of your newborn kid lying on a rug or sleeping in a bowl of gumballs? Well, everything actually, unless you did intend to take a hilariously funny baby picture.
