You're celebrating your birthday at home this summer, and so far, you've likely figured out what kind of cake you want, where you want to order a cute #look from, and who you're going to FaceTime on the day of. But in the midst of planning your day, you may have noticed you don't have any festive ideas for birthday pictures at home. You've likely wondered, "Is it even possible to take a pic as electrifying as last year when I checked out that new bar with my besties, or the year before, when I took a trip?"
That's a valid question, but it can happily be debunked with a few of the props and photo shoot-worthy items laying around your house. If you're the proud owner of a circle mirror, a giant window that lets in a massive amount of sunlight in the afternoon, or pool where you can dive into the deep end, then there are plenty of eye-catching pics you can take. If you have an oven or access to a really cute cupcake shop that'll deliver some sweet treats to your doorstep, you also have everything you need for the birthday selfies of your dreams.
You can set your phone up on a timer, or you may need to ask your roommate or SO for some help snapping the pic once you have it completely set up. But, that's OK, because it's your day, and they'll likely love being a part of it. They probably won't mind coming up with some captions for these eight ideas of birthday pictures to take at home, either.
