Family Photos With Your Baby

Being a mom is all about weighing options and finding balance — between personal and family time, rest and to-do's, even putting on makeup and eating breakfast. And there's another area of choice you might not have considered: whether to take a photo of a family occasion or just experience the moment.

With a new little one in the family, every day has its fair share of special moments. While this shouldn’t deter you from capturing them to your heart’s content, remember that you’re part of the family, too. Browse through the photos you have of your child — how many are you in? How many of the photos you’re not in were moments you shared together with your baby? You were there, yes, but as the person behind the camera.

Take a Step Back

When you’re thinking about taking a picture, take a second and assess what’s going on. Whose moment is it? Is it your little one’s first haircut? Or is it the first time your new family is bringing your child over to the in-laws’? In both of these situations, odds are you’d end up taking the keepsake photo.

Here's another plan: If the moment is all about your child, snap away! But if the moment is about your family — including you — you need to find a way to be in the picture.

Give Yourself a Break

It's time to ask someone else to take the photo, so you can experience and capture the moment at the same time. It may be hard to relinquish your role as the recorder-in-chief, but these moments only happen once. So go ahead and hand over the camera!
