Why you should be a working mother?

Why you should be a working mother?

Being a daughter, wife and mother are the three key roles a girl plays in her lifetime. She should not be guilty of what she is doing with her love care and concern, she binds her family in a strong bond. As a person, she evolves herself from a girl to a woman. As a wife, she learns to take care of her husband and his family. Then why you should be a working mother?

Later as she stepped into the world of motherhood everything seems so complete. With that little bundle of joy in her arms, she cannot ask for more. Now she has found her true love because she has fallen in love at the first sight. Nothing can change this fact that a baby gives you an immense sense of joy.

After being born as a mother, your husband, family, and baby take the center stage leaving you far behind your dreams and passion. In India, a mother shares more responsibilities than a father does. Now many things have changed and the society has become much progressive but still, you cannot change the mentality in a day if it has been surviving there for years. As a mother, you have to be more responsible for your baby.

Why you should be a working mother?

Today the society has evolved to an extent and a woman, today, are now independent and speak up their opinions. That is what we needed for a long time or we can say we were missing from a long time. Their choices in life have come out of the kitchen and decorating their house interiors.  They still love to do it, but while doing so they want to spend their own money for buying the things for the interiors of their choice and are not dependent on their husband’s money. This is where we can mark a difference. A financial stability and independence.

Being a working mother is again not easy, it has its own downsides. Sometimes getting too busy with office works makes you feel guilty that you are not able to fulfill the responsibilities as a mother. The pressure to excel at your work, taking care of your kid, husband and family can sometimes be burdening and it may leave you exhausted. Being a supermom is surely not an easy task.

Let go of the guilt and stay calm, you cannot make everyone around you happy at the same time. Stop expecting a lot from yourself, the best part is when you are trying your best then there is no point in proving yourself as a perfect mother or wife or daughter-in-law. Share your responsibilities with your partner, both of you should become the role model for your growing kid. All parents go through challenges while growing up their kid, so whether you are working or not it does not make much difference. Parenting is tough anyways.

Stay away from the negative sources who make you feel guilty, you are better than them because you are a working mother. Remember that you are setting a good example for your kid. Take a day off for your kid, spend some free time and do whatever makes your little one happy. Overcome your guilt because you are setting an example and not avoiding your part of responsibilities. Let the people talk, kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna…….

Stay happy. 🙂

When they move, they are all jiggly and wiggly. Babies are very difficult to predict, especially the newborns and up until at least four months. It is consistently the case that one finds trouble having infants to present a certain posture or be in compliance with the photographer’s wants.

Here are a few baby photo shoot ideas for home which can inspire you if you’re planning on getting one for your baby.

Photo shoots with Props

Photo shoots with Props

Nothing is in comparison to the tremendous joy that a baby brings to a family. Those cuddly joyful bundles just grow up in no time. No one can deny their utmost adorableness at almost everything that they do. Be it drooling every now and then, catching up with the sleepy sheep or pooping and giving away an ‘oops’ glance, countless moments add up to make their childhood a memorable one for the parents. A kids photo shoot with props influences the whole photo shoot. It is certain that babies grow up at an insane pace. Days seem like hours and years like months. They grow up even before the experiences materialize into feelings.

Why photo shoots with props?

Photo shoots or just photographs are important to have as children. Those things don’t only help the parents reminisce their child’s early stage of growing up but also helps the child see his own self and the miracle that he was when he grows up. If we recall the photographs we have as children, for most of us, it would be the one with the missing front tooth, one in the bathtub, the one with all the giggles but no clothes, the one during the fifth birthday and so on. Those were days that were plain with the photographs and simple with the emotions. But the world is changing and so are the photo shoot concepts for babies. Earlier anything around a child would become a prop.

Nowadays, things are exceptionally placed in the frames for it to compliment the baby. Baby photo shoots are not only cute and delightful but they are also highly creative and fun to be worked on. Indoors, outdoors, home studios, amusement parks or just a bed, the possibilities are endless now. Photographers are also giving their work an edge nowadays by tailoring the subject and concepts according to the baby’s and the parents’ personalities.

Cuteness is not the only things that these shoots bring to the plate these days. They are playful and exceptionally smart. Every day and regular objects can be used in a manner to make ordinary photos look out of the box. We have made a list of props that you can take inspiration from for the photo shoot of your baby.

Props you can use for the photo shoots.

1.Hammocks

There is the ordinary baby photo napping or playing on a hammock. And then again you could go crazy with your ideas. Set up the room like it is a beach.
Make your baby don a pair of oversized cool sunglasses or a beach hat.

2. Diaper cover sets

If your baby is too whiny about objects around him, you can go with the easy but beautiful choice of diaper sets. Pick up the dinky little diapers and make creative usage of those things other than just throwing them away when the deed is done.

3. Chocolates

No, we are not talking about the usual chocolate bars but candies, gummy bears, and gems. Those colorful with not only pop up the fun quotient of the photos but also make your child all giggly in the sugar, honey and lollipops.

4. Stuffed toys

Soft toys are the ever so favorite choice amongst parents. And why should it not be? They are the perfect things to go alongside your baby, just as pretty and adorbs!

5. Colorful furniture

By furniture, we don’t only mean furniture. Apart from baby chairs, colorful cots and swings, there can also be bricks, blocks or legos. There can be nothing more exciting than letting your happy baby just play on his own
and the photo shoot take its desired course.

6. Faux furs

Make your baby sleep in furs and they are having their very own Thumbelina
moment, sleeping in feather or petals. Wrap her up in the exciting fleece and coats and built up the swag quotient of the photos.

7. Wings

Wings can turn your little one into a fairy, a birdie or anything fantastical of your choice. Give your giggly pooper wings and see the new heights that the photos reach.
