Get in the picture: Family snaps with your baby

Get in the picture: Family snaps with your baby

How about a family shot with you actually in it? Maybe it’s time to let someone else take the picture.

With a new little one in the family, everyday has its fair share of special moments. While this shouldn't deter you from capturing them, remember that you're part of the family, too.

Browse through the photos you have of your child – exactly how many are you in? You were there, yes, but as the person behind the camera.

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

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. Go ahead and hand over the camera!

Family Photos


Being the mom I'm usually the one taking all the photos and missing memories but not anymore....given the new phone features these days I can be apart of every memory. Every photo no matter how silly or professional, they are all important

Family Photo


This is why i love the selfie button and the stick that allows you to include yourself

Enjoy the moment


When ever our family takes proffessional photos I walk away sweating and stressed out but in the relaxed family photos the smiles are genuinely real and relaxed

Great advice


This made me realize I need to get in more pictures and be apart of the memories.

Great Points


My mom was always the photographer and as a family we have to work hard to make sure that everyone is captured in the photos!
