Do I include my sons GF in our family picture

So my husband and I want to do a family picture with our adult children. My daughter is married so we want her Husband in the picture. One of my sons is not married but he has a LTR with a woman and they have a baby together so she will also be in the picture. My question is my other Son just started dating a girl less than a month ago but they have moved in together. She seems nice but we don't know her very well and I am unsure if we should include her in our family picture or is it OK not to invite her?

Family Picture
by: Ms P Etiquette

If you consider your son and your grandchild ​family members, then the GF must be a family member as well, right? It would be incredibly rude to exclude any one of  these three from the family photo. You will be glad you did.

Misunderstanding

I'm sorry I think you misunderstood my question. I am referring to 2 different sons. I am not asking if my son #1 girlfriend that has the babybshould be included in the picture. I'm asking if son #2 girlfriend of less than a month of knowing each other should be included?

Who is that??

In my family, unless you are married or in your son's case 'committed with children', the significant other at the moment is not in the picture. A picture is snapshot in time. If they split up next year, do you really want to look at her in your family pictures 20 years from now?
Will your son want to have to explain to future children, who that person is?

In my opinion, the "new" girlfriend should not be in the picture. A picture is snapshot in time. Professional pictures are an investment.
If they split up next year, do you really want to look at her? in your family pictures 20 years from now? Will your son want to have to explain to future children, who that person is? Are you going to want to explain to grandchildren, who that is?
