Lucy comes home from school today with a bundle of school photos, despite me not having paid for them – so yay bonus – however! On checking out her portrait I was once again reminded why I decided against coughing up the dough for them this year. Lucy does not take photos well, I don’t know why this is as she is beautiful (if I say so myself), but for some reason as soon as a camera is pointed at her she just seems to – I don’t know – go Zoolander on us? When we send these photos to relatives they have called us to ask if she pulled those faces on purpose! And well I got nothing, I don’t know what to say, but I know you want to see them. 😉
So here’s the reason for my boycott:
This one has been likened to children of the corn. Staring down the barrel of the camera, I’m fairly sure she can read your thoughts, or at least start fires with her mind.
This one is my personal favourite – it says Paris Hilton mug shot. I feel like typing up a charge sheet and sticking it under her chin 😉 But really what was the photographer doing here? How hard is it to say to a kid, smile! And I bet it was digital, easy enough for a do over I’m sure.
And here is today’s effort, I kinda like this one. But according to her it’s my fault that she had messy hair. Of course it is.
Well at least in years to come I will be able to look back at these and have more than just a smile, but a giggle as well. 🙂
