This is a great idea! I have taken a pic with her holding a "First day of school sign" for her preschool years, but what a great keepsake for later on. Thank you so much for the compliments on the pj's for my daughter. I have had a fun time sewing them, they are quick and easy. I won't worry if I have my daughter in the picture or not! I usually try and take a picture of her in what ever I make, just for keepsake (and to email to my mom!) who likes to see them. The lampshade comment made me laugh!
