When really small, it is difficult to capture them lying down and as they grow it is very hard to capture their images.

It is very difficult to catch the exact moment of their cute smiles or enchanting expressions as they are fleeting and so not in the mood to pose for you.

Most parents like to maintain a scrap book that shows their baby’s milestones and growth.
