    It's ridiculous but adorable. The best part is that the son went along with it. :lol:

    I saw this and felt such sympathy for their son.

    It's cute but oh, the cringe factor.

    I like that mom's earrings match son's plugs. :lol:

    Were newborn photos even a thing in 1996? I know Anne Geddes was popular but she generally didn't have parents in the shots. Or did I completely miss it being a preteen at the time and not caring about babies?

    I know one photographer who made her living on newborns in the 90s. It was the carefully posed Geddes-type stuff. Those babies sleeping on strategically folded blankets stuffed in baskets were her showpieces, but the full galleries would have a couple generic shots with the parents too.

    Huh. I didn't know they were popular then too. I thought everyone just had that same hospital newborn photo in the same teal and pink striped blanket as everyone else.

    My parents have some presumably pro photos of my sister and I as newborns/young babies. I don't think there's any with my parents in them though.
