The beauty of a picture

Cute child photographs

Smiling children and cute clothes

I remember the day when my son was a baby and how special it was picking out clothes for him as an infant and through his baby years. Babies are so cute and natural when you get them to pose in the right settings and at the right time. It is precious to photograph a baby and have them all dressed up and looking so cute. I love looking at photographs of my son when he was a baby as it seems the years have passed by way to fast. I remember bringing our son to a friend's studio when he was 9 months old and having him dressed in a baseball uniform with a cute cap and a play bat. He posed so naturally and my friend managed to get some really delightful photos of him in such great poses with such an expressive smile in each pose. Our first family Christmas was a joy and Maria had our son dressed in a cute Santa's helper's outfit that really was memorable.

Pictures are our way of capturing those special moments and preserving them so we can remind ourselves years later how truly wonderful life is and how precious our children are and seeing them again as babies through family photographs bring the smiles back along with the wonderful memories which we can share with our children. Childhood is a special time and it is fleeting so it is important to let our children be children for as long as possible because the time they come of age is a difficult reality we all will face. As I look back at the baby pictures of our son I just feel so happy and so amazed and I also enjoy sharing them with him and having him see himself as we remember him.

Another special moment in a parent's life aside from their child's birth is introducing them to family and friends and blessing them in the name of their religion. Our son was baptized in the church and I remember my wife dressing him in a cute white suit and tie. I was so proud and I wanted to cherish and preserve this forever in my mind and in photographs. As we had our son blessed by the priest and had our family gathered together I remember the moment as if it was only yesterday and I remember seeing all the little baby boys and girls in their suits and dresses looking so adorable as each and everyone of them cried when they were anointed including our son.

As I saw the little baby girls in their little Christening dresses I thought how special it must be to shop for them. Baby girls have such cute outfits to wear and so many choices. There is no limit as to what you can buy for a baby girl. Whenever we have the honor of buying clothes for a baby girl I find it a fun outing and I enjoy picking out cute little dresses and pajamas for them. Another fun thing to buy for a baby girl are shoes and more dresses! Baby girls are so cute and when they are all dressed up and posing for pictures it is adorable.

In a perfect world as parents we all would love to have a baby boy and a baby girl to raise and we would love them both equally. For parents with one child we love our child with all our heart and wish to give them everything under the sun to make their life joyous and special. We take great joy in seeing our baby smile and making their milestones and always feel we can never have enough photographs of them as babies. Life is truly wonderful when you are a family of three; mother, father and baby. Pictures tell the story always.
