My parents want to take my daughter to a photo session of just the three of them, this makes me slightly uncomfortable, Have any of your parents insisted on photos of only three of them? I have said no, but they don't listen any advice? Please. Xo

We did a bunch of family photos when my kids were little and my kids have shots w/ just the grandparents. My niece has professional pics w/ just the grandparents too. That isn't a big deal at all. I think you are making it a big deal because of the other issues you are having w/ them. In which case you just need to stand your ground and be the mom. If they can't respect YOU as the parent... then they don't need to be spending time around you and your daughter.

So if that's the case stop giving them uninterrupted access to your child, I still don't see a problem with a professional picture but if it bothers you then tell them so. If they don't listen then stop letting them around her.

Its very hard to explain, my mom tells me what to do with ,my daughter and when we are out in public she will interrupt me when someone asks about my daughter and talks to them about her. I feel very awkward about them getting pictures of just the three of them, I feel its not something Grandparents should be stepping their bounds on, considering the were barely there for me, I think they should back down. And I do tell them I don't like the picture idea but they never listen and never have.

Why does it bother you so much? What's the difference between getting professional pics done or just taking candid pictures? I really don't see the problem maybe if I knew why it bothered you so much I would feel differently.
