Question: My son is 8 1/2 months old. He is a chunky baby and has a great personality. Does any one have a good idea on what he should wear? I like to do something unique for each picture but I am having a hard time with this one. Something creative?

Hi! I usually take a couple of outfits with me when we take my son for pictures. Yes, the diapers-only shots are cute, but I start off with a picture of him dressed in a nice but casual outfit. Khakis with a polo shirt or button-down shirt with dress shoes are nice to send to the grandpa and auntie up north. Then, I dress him in something fun like an all-in-one romper with the local MLB team on it, sandals and baseball hat. I have had pictures taken of him in his bathing suit and sun hat--too cute!! Toward the end of the session is when the diaper-only shots come. At Christmas, I bring out his Santa hat and have them take a bunch of shots in that!! I have also had pictures done of him in jeans, white tee-shirt and leather jacket, wearing sunglasses on a pure white background. He looked sooooooo great!! I have also had the cutest shot done of my son in a giant suitcase, with a huge tie draped around his neck, putting on a huge hat. It was done in color originally but then I had it printed in sepia tones--gorgeous! They have so many fun backgrounds and props now compared to when I was young! Also, a picture of your child playing with his toes is adorable!! My girlfriend had a pic of her son in a romper on his back with the baby's feet left bare. He did what any baby does when they discover they can grab their toes and it made for an incredibly adorable keepsake. I always bring his favorite stuffed toy as well for when his patience starts wearing thin or he wants to get up and move around. Also, the pictures with their favorite stuffed bear/elephant/Elmo always add an element of "remember when" to your child's pictures. What you might want to do is go to the studio first and check out the backgrounds and props they have so you can anticipate the styles of dress for him according to which backgrounds you would like to use. I know that Sears and Wal-Mart have a huge selection of props and backgrounds for you to see and use. I have had my son's pictures done at both studios and I can say that I would recommend both to you for your child's pictures. Good Luck to you!

Whatever he wears make sure it is comfy. At that young of an age, I had my daughter's picture taken sitting in an old fashioned kettle with just her diaper and a chef's hat on. Pictures in their diapers are so cute because you get to see all their cute fat rolls! Have you done one with him in swimming trunks with a beach ball and sunglasses?

why not dress him up in something that you would like, it's not like he is going to know. make sure you enjoy it today, so he can have something to laugh about when he gets older.

Thad Originally Answered: What would you like to see on a Baby Name Blog?
Aargh... you've reminded me that I really need to update my blog again. I was doing so well with posting regularly until I got pregnant. My favorite baby name blogs bring to light unusual names I've never heard of but that have some genuine basis in history or literature. I also like hearing in-depth information about familiar names that makes me see them in a new light. I enjoy reading well-researched name lists that actually say something about each name listed. I'm not so into the long lists of names that don't comment on each name (like the lists that say, "Here's 40 names from New Orleans"). You could write posts focusing on people's perceptions of names. I ran a Yahoo Answers survey a while back on biblical names where I listed a bunch of familiar names and asked people to classify each one as biblical or not biblical. It was interesting to see which non-biblical names people thought WERE biblical, and which genuinely biblical names people had no idea appeared in the Bible. You could do a similar thing with names from Shakespeare or other literary names. Or you could give a survey to people outside the name-enthusiast community to see how many of them know the meanings of various common names. Family tree names are always interesting, especially if you have any unusual gems on yours. I have great-grandparents named Leta and Philo, and apparently there was a great-great uncle Methodius. Occasional reports on names of kids you've met in your area that week are good, too -- they let readers know what names people are really using. A few months back I met siblings called Phoebe, Apollos, and Emmanuel! General naming advice is always good, such as how to pick a middle name, how to adapt a family name, whether to choose a common or unusual name. Ooh, substitutes for common names make great posts. I've written posts on substitutes for Sophia and Olivia. I wanted to do all the top 10 names, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I love thematic lists, such as "Jane Austen names" or "Names that have to do with heavenly bodies." You could write posts on how to name multiples, like "Ten Subtle Ways to Make Your Twins' Names Match," or you could compose a list of twin and triplet names that have the same meanings. An advice column is always fun. I started one on my blog. You have to be careful to choose only the interesting questions, but for every boring "Should I name my daughter Ella or Emma?" that you receive, you'll also get a "What are some names that sound good in both English and Japanese?" I guess another way to think about this is to ask what aspects of naming interest YOU the most. I started my blog primarily because I liked researching name lists and writing out step-by-step "how to" advice on name choosing. The transience of Yahoo Answers bothered me -- I could spend an hour or more on an answer, but the question and answers would only be read for a couple days and then my carefully researched list or carefully worded advice would be lost and not seen again. I also like unusual names. I'm much more interested in introducing people to the name Tulliver or getting them to consider Benedict as a legitimate possibility than I am in explaining why I like Henry or James. I never did the "Name of the Day" thing, but I would spotlight different names whenever I came across something truly unusual. Good luck, and I hope this helps!
