My first reaction when I saw the infamous school pictures flier in Sadie’s backpack was, “Why would I purchase pictures when I am a photographer?” I would never hang up the pictures in my house…
I then asked Justin, who gave me the ARE YOU INSANE look. We talked it over and couldn’t decide either way. He suggested just getting the class shot.
So what to do when you can’t make a grown up decision between you and your spouse????
You take it to FACEBOOK!
So I asked it- whether or not the photog moms and dads of the world purchase their children’s school pictures.
I got lots of, “HECK NO, I am a photographer and am not going to waste my money on that crap!”
And lots of, “HECK YES, they are hilarious and disturbing and I am hanging that sucker up at their wedding one day!”
It right away made me hunt for my old school pictures.
And when I found these jewels, they were just that, hilarious AND disturbing.
And so- in the spirit of hilarity or maybe I just like to humiliate myself, here are some of mine.
Now, to defend the photographer on these for a minute. Not all of these disastrous excuses of pictures is his/her fault. I mean COME ON!!! The hair??? The clothes??? Mom, would you like to defend yourself here?
Okay- well you have to admit, I was quite the poser!
Now- can we say LASERS? Oh yeah baby! Gotta love the early 90′s! What I want to know is why I am wearing my moms shirt (picture left) and well (picture right, for that matter) And check out that bling!! And the band aid residue! Love it.
But check out the photo on the right…that looks like Sadie right there. Weird!
I only found elementary school pictures. So maybe my parents finally got smart and stopped paying for pictures that embarrassed the family name.
But, while we are on the subject of bad pictures…I did find these gems. Old dance studio pictures.
All I can say is what weirdo suggested these lovely costumes and set ups?!
and the best…and most disturbing of them all…
Sooo anyways, you can see my dilemma.
Do I pay $16 for pure amusement? Yes- that’s the price of the lowest package!
Or I do I skip the whole thing and just buy the class photo and call it a day?
Thanks for looking…and probably laughing at my expenseIt’s cool- I brought it on myself!
