The Maternal (long arm) Self Portrait Slideshow.

The irony of being a photographer in your spare time is that you’re not in many of the pictures. In fact I realized tonight that there aren’t many photos of myself with Vivi that aren’t taken long arm style by me. Sad right? Kind of.

You see, the photos I have taken of us together are some of my favorite. I can remember the exact moment of each photo. The warm baby snuggles, the sunshine coming in through the window…basically the bliss of being hunkered down with a new baby.

Vivi’s first three months in maternal self portraits after the jump!

As much as I love these, I’m ready for some grown up photos taken by another grown up of my baby and me.

How about you? Are you happy with long arm snapshots, everyday photos or do you hire a professional?
