7 Newborn Photo Ops You Shouldn't Pass up ...

When you have a baby, there are so many newborn photo ops. I have boxes of pictures from when my kids were born. Our tradition is to get them out on their birthdays and look through their first year of life. Taking lots of pictures might not cross your mind since life with a newborn is so busy and utterly exhausting. But I can promise you that those pictures will be super valuable as the kids grow and change. So start with these perfect newborn photo ops and you’ll be able to look back on the early months anytime you want to.

1. At Birth

Sure, birth is messy and you probably don’t feel or look your best when it’s all over, but it’s definitely one of the newborn photo ops you won’t want to miss. Have someone take photos of your little one right after he’s born, after they clean him up and dress him and don’t forget to take a few of yourself and your spouse cuddling your new arrival. You might not want them plastered on Facebook, but those immediate photos are the ones you’ll end up treasuring the most.
