Just a PSA since the topic of newborn photos has come up several times now. As a photographer myself, I hate having my picture taken. It's why I started taking the pictures, so I wouldn't have to be in them. That said, when I do family sessions, I always encourage reluctant parents to get in the pictures with their kids. Although I dread how I will look in our son's newborn photos, I know that we would all regret not being in them. I came across this great article that says it much more eloquently than me.
P.S. I dare you not to get teary!
