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!
