Why is it so wrong that I want pictures of just my kids? update

I told DH over dinner that I made an appointment to get the kid's pictures taken on Wednesday. He looked at me and said "my kids won't be here then." I said, " well I just want to get it with our kids". I just had a baby 4 months ago we have a 3 year old too. I have professional pictures of our children individually, I have professional pictures of  our two with his two (from his ex)  all together and I have one of all of us (me, DH his two and our two) but I don't have any professional ones of just ours.  He got really mad and said there was no reason to do this and we ended up in a big fight about it. I love my step children and of course they are part of our family but I don't see what's wrong with wanting to have a professional picture of just my kids.

I told DH that if he has a problem with having pictures of just the kids we have together then I will not get it done IF he will get rid of all the pictures he has of just his kids that were taken after our kids were born. His ex takes their kids to get their pictures taken and always sends over a 3 1/2 X 5 or  5X 7 and it aways gets put on the wall or on a table. If it is ok to have pictures of just the two of them in our home, then why is it a problem to have them of just our kids?

I get your point but it almost seems divisional to do them separate.

Did he say it because he just wasn't thinking or is he actually upset about it?

He was mad, he said there is no reason for it

I wouldn't separate them like that in photographs.  Photos of the children would include all of the children.

This. You are essentially dividing the children. It probably bothers him.

I think because u should not look at like his kids and our kids . They should all be considered our kids . It may be better if u have pics made of his kids together by their selves too .thats wat I would do .

They are different though. I love them but they are not my children. My step children have many pictures of just the two of them at their mom's house, why can't my kids have that?

I agree with your husband. Why would you want to separate them?
