Be honest: One of the best parts of having a baby is having easy access to someone who is always, always, always photogenic. Even if your baby is pouting or glaring, chances are he’s still adorable — which can solve many a problem.
Don’t have a good picture of yourself to use as your Facebook profile photo? Stick your baby in it! No clue what to get your mother-in-law for her birthday? Three words: Baby. Photos. DONE. Get pulled over by the police while speeding? Explain that you were rushing home to feed your hungry baby … and then whip out that brag book pronto to prove it!
Of course, around this time of year, the most obvious way to make the most of your photogenic baby is through holiday family photos and cards. Need some inspiration on what not to do? Check out these awesomely awkward baby pictures from Awkward Family Photos.
