To share photos of our children or not?

An important person in our family has asked me not to publish photos of Manu and share them so widely.  I now feel like I'm in a bind and on one hand I can see their point and on the other I wonder really what is wrong with sharing something I am so proud of.

They have made a point that Manu has not given his permission to have his photo shared with strangers.  Of course he is too young but then what right do I have? 

I've decided to respect this persons opinion and rethink what my blog is about and whether it can continue down a different path other than documenting my child's growth and development.

Does anyone have a view on this subject they can share with me?

  1. Hi...I think its perfectly ok to share the pictures, these are all beautiful memories and moments that one captures....and more over after a certain point in time when manu is all grown up, you can share all pictures and posts with him.....and at that time you two can together cherish those beautiful moments that once were !!!

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment Supreet. I do agree with what your saying. I will still post pictures but I probably won't do as many. I know that some bloggers who write about their children only use photos where their children's faces can't be seen but that seems a bit extreme. I would like to show Manu one day and for him to see it as a positive thing.
