A few months ago when I announced that Bets and I were expecting a baby, I mentioned that our biggest disagreement so far was on photos. I wanted to take newborn/baby photos myself and Betsy wanted to pay for them.
This turned out to be a fairly heated debate and many of the comments on the post actually started to sway me to the HIRE camp.
I figured the only way to know for sure is to try it out. So, I recruited a buddy who has a young boy (6 mo. at the time) and we had a little photo shoot one day. It was super fun and I got some good photos. Probably nothing quite PRO level, but at the same time the photos had a real, genuine feel to them.
This is one of my favorite shots that show off Sam’s big blue eyes.
So yea… I won the photo debate. You’ll be seeing some Dad-taken photos of baby Nugget in the next few months.
Also, to be fair, Betsy did sort of also win (also known as a compromise). We will occasionally pay for a family shot so we can all be together in the photos!
I haven’t done a poll in a while. Next week is COOKIE week here at Macheesmo. I have four delicious cookies planned, but that leaves room for one. Pick an ingredient and I’ll cookie-fy it.
Have a great weekend everybody!
