Disappointment, In A Picturesque Sort Of Way

I am disappointed. Yes, I am. And down right frustrated. And annoyed. See, Neeley had her school pictures made last week. And all of us proud RBEMS mommies were so excited because FINALLY they hired a photographer who took great, not your ordinary sit there and pretend to smile pictures. The kiddos were invited to bring their own props and have some good ol' fun with their individual shoots.

Yeah, well...they all turned out TERRIBLE! I thought maybe my kid just had a bad day when you view them all online you can see the entire school (isn't that against the law or something?) and I'm sorry to say I didn't think any of them were good at all!

Is it bad to not order any of the pictures? Sorry grandparents, but I'm serious. I am sure I will end up getting some of them just because. But for the first time ever, I really don't want any of them. I feel bad thinking so but! I am so not a photographer but I think I could do better than that. And to just know that we were all so looking forward to getting them back. Man...

You may not think this is a dilemma but we sure do. :) I was excited about new pictures at a new school. And this particular photographer allows them to pick from different backgrounds once the shots are posted, and several of the backgrounds are historical things that are here in Germany.

Hence the excitement... humph!

Ok, now I'm done with this topic. But what to do, what to do...

Tune in next week to find out. :)

That's awful! Nothing is more important that the school photo. It documents your child's growth and helps you recall memories down the road. Ugh, I hate crappy photographers!
