In that post both the OP, packermomof2, a BM, and newwife1, a SM, both seemed to think a SP shoud not take pictures of their stepchild (quoted below).
I was pretty shocked by what I read, but it started me wondering if maybe I was the odd man out. I mean, I will readily admit that my family is picture crazy. We love preserving our memories through photos; I can literally see at least 15 photo albums from where I am sitting on the couch, and my living room walls and tables are all sporting framed photos of our family & friends.
I took tons of family photos over the 4 day holiday weekend (at aunt's Thurs, SIL's Fri, sister's Sat, parents' today), and that includes SS. He is just as much a star of our annual "Year in Review" photo album as DH and I are, and he is prominently featured in frames throughout the house. I cannot imagine ever excluding him, but if I did (since this post got me thinking about it), I think it would break DH's heart!
So what does everyone out there in internet land do? Do you include SK in your family photos? Or do you purposely exclude them from your tangible memories?
I've never even thought of taking a picture of my SS in the last 5 years lol.
I don't get what the big deal is with pictures.
If his father wants a pic of his kid I assume he will take one.
And this here. The last time my husband took a picture of my kids it was because I asked him to take one of my daughter up at bat because I was doing something else at the moment. He has never just taken pictures to take pictures
