I'm sure Anna will fully be able to appreciate in 10-15 all the photos you did take of her at this age once she looks back on this one! Reply 0 Replies Sign in or sign up to comment. Karen says… 05/09/2012 Amen! I "saw the light" when my MIL removed the school portrait from the frame I gave her and replaced it with a photo I took of my child. Funny that I had to hear her say that my photos were better / captured the essence before I started to believe it myself. Reply 0 Replies Sign in or sign up to comment. Irma P. says… 05/09/2012 she looks so shy :) I'd still purchase it though. My eldest son's school photos though... I had to have retakes taken, AND he still gives the school photographer a fake, one side of the lip turned up half smile. It looks so forced! Even on the retakes he does the same 'cheese smile'. I skipped two years worth of school pictures, because he is the most photogenic kid when I take them off-guard and he's not posing for me.

Their work is not good. I have complained to the school and to the company, but it hasn't done any good. As guess taking (and paying) for bad school photos is just part of life.

My junior in High School has something go wrong with almost every school picture but they still get scrapped in one way or another. There is definitely a story in there somewhere that is begging to be scapped. :) Anna looks like she needs a hug from Mama! Reply 0 Replies Sign in or sign up to comment. Crystal says… 05/11/2012 I agree. If I were 3 and some strange person came into school to take my picture, I would probably look the same way. We just got our school pictures back this week as well. One shot my daughter is not even looking at the camera. She smiles much better when I am behind the camera.
