I am feeling a little bit sad that I haven’t done the same for my second daughter as what I did with my first. We had so many photos done with my first & have had no professional ones done with our second. we only have the ones that either I have taken or our family has taken. I feel when she gets older she is going to be a bit resentful that I haven’t done everything for her as I have done for her sister. Everyone is telling me it’s ok it doesn’t matter but I still have that guilt feeling

  • you have your hands full and it is hard to think about photos! i have a great phone with a great camera so i have been able to get more photos with this!


  • I totally here you, we found the some thing with number two and nothing anyone can say will change that.


  • The first child always has many firsts. Don’t beat yourself up over it. I was always at a professional photographers with the first but my second has only had photos done at 4mths & he’ll be five soon.


  • I totally get this. I’m very aware that we haven’t done the same with our second and third as with our first. I think it gets impossible, but it doesn’t stop you feeling guilty. I assuaged my guilt somewhat by choosing one or two “special” things – like, with each child we did a professional photo shoot at 9 months. But the guilt never really goes away.
