School Picture Day Success!

Ella as Lisa Loopner
When my kids showed me their proofs from school picture day, I was not prepared to see such startling images. The photographer had a rare talent of capturing children at their most uncomfortable and unnatural moments. You can't be taught that. They went from cool city kids to nervous nerds in seconds. We spent a half hour laughing over these pics yesterday. The best part: It's not a joke, just honest bad photography. And I'll take an 8 x 10 of each. I can't let these pictures go to waste. Too good.

  3. Oh my gosh. Tooo good. Love these. Too good/bad that is. Thank goodness you have so many great natural shots of your sweet kiddos. Remind me to show you Henry's sometime. He's sitting with his hands crossed in front of each other and his hair is sticking up to heaven.

  7. i used to have the kids dress up and picked out a tasteful background, but then i realized, school photos are always ridiculous. now the kids pick their clothes and backgrounds--which involved something that looked like disco lights recently. it made them so much better!

  10. I can't stop laughing at how awful/fantastic these pictures are!! This is exactly what school pictures were meant to be - a moment in time of complete awkwardness and weird faces. Your kids will be so pissed in a few years, but until then, enjoy these!!!

  12. These are classic ... I used to work as a school photographer, and retake day was the best. These were back in the days of film, so you didn't know what you were getting. It broke my heart that some parents didn't keep the awful gems we took. I have to admit, I kept a huge stack of them and take them out once and awhile for a good laugh.

  13. I think your little girl looks adorable! The boys are geeky looking in these pics, but that is fine- plenty of time later in life to be cool

  16. Oh gosh...Dwight is PERFECT! My sister and I had our picture taken a few times together as kids, and our parents still have the 8x10 of the absolute worst and funniest shot of us hanging in their room. I love this! Thanks for posting :)

  17. The spring pics at my kids school were in front of a green screen. They asked the kids to wear any color except green. Mine wore green! I said they should tell anyone who asked, "My mom WANTS me to be a floating head." Now we are having fun playing with the backgrounds on the order site. The only reason I can think to buy these is that the kids have these really fun mischievous looks in their eyes.

  18. This truly is very funny and adorable, but seems a little harsh/insensitive to the photogs, who's name/company is stamped for all to see on your proofs.
