Gil's Take on Newborn Photos


In this sneak peek of tomorrow's new episode, Gil and Kelly Bates, along with Michael and Brandon Keilen, stop by Erin and Chad Paine's cottage-style house for a meal. According to her family, Michael Keilen has a love for children and sewing, and they are encouraging her to start her own business selling dresses for little girls.

Erin and Chad are counting down the days until the arrival of daughter Brooklyn Paine, but Gil suggests that they do newborn pictures a bit differently with baby No. 2. "This time we're going to put some clothes on this baby," he says, pointing to photos of Carson as a newborn. "Ain't we? I've gotta look away from that thing when I see it." Chad laughingly agrees, but the women think that snapshots of infants with bare backs are adorable.

  1. Why are job goals by the "girls" always called little? A "little" website to sell children's clothing? When Chad made the bed for Bradley nobody said he wants to start a "little" business making furniture. Michael could have a flourishing career, and gasp, bring in more income than Brandon!

    1. I didn't really think of it this way, but I definitely agree with this comment! If Michael has a talent for sewing then that talent has just as much potential as any other.

    3. Very well said! Exactly what I was thinking. I wish Michael all the best in this possible business venture.

  2. I think they say "little" to be more modest and humble about their talents, rather than promote themselves as being the biggest and best.

    1. Bingo! The voice of reason.

  3. What I like is that they encourage the girls to consider careers. Unlike the other family who just wants to girls to marry and become brood mares, the Bates family appears to value education and work....even for the girls.

    1. And I think that all comes from the parents being University educated. The parents in the "other family" do not have education past high school.

  4. @8:49. You know you will be labeled a hater for that comment. Although I agree with you it won't go over well, and I'm a bit surprised it was posted. Can you imagine if the "girls" said Brandon has a "little" job in Chicago or Zach had a "little" job as a police officer or Gil had a "little" tree trimming business? Yeah...it sounds terrible! It sounds the same way to we women when talking about our jobs too.

  5. They are just so natural, in spite of cameras rolling. The conversation about Carson's little nudie pictures was just hilarious. Just love watching them.

  6. Most people don't see a photo of a newborn covered in a blanket and think there's anything wrong with it...pointing it out and saying the baby needs clothes is what makes it awkward!! Personally, I'm not very into newborn photos, but then I've never had a child of my own so that could change. But I definitely understand parents who want those first photos of their sleeping baby and the pictures that Taryn Yager took are very nice.

    1. I agree with Gil, also. While there is certainly nothing sexual about a newborn picture, I just don't get it. People are so careful to keep the cap on a newborn's head yet pose them naked for photos....I simply don't get it.

    2. I agree. Nude baby pictures give me the creeps, especially the ones where they're all curled up as if still in the womb.

  10. Read a little more closely anon @8:49. It says a business selling dresses for "little" girls. Not a little business.

    1. It does say little business and Zack says little website. But I don't think they mean it as offensive to women.

    2. No, no, it was in the video that they said "little business", not in the written paragraph above.

  11. At least their girls are provided a college education and some opportunities. With a small child it's great to have a business you can manage and still be h home. She is a smart young woman. I'm sure she will succeed at anything she tries.

  12. I don't think they mean little like you are thinking of it. I think they are meaning that it is something they want to do part time. Not everyone is looking for a full time job or full time business.
