Rested

I passed out on the couch last night before 8:30...then hubby woke me up at 9:45 so I could stumble to my bed. I slept like an absolute rock. I woke, bright eyed and bushy tailed, at 6 am ready to face the day and have a nice productive Saturday. I guess there really is something to that old saying - "early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise."

Miss S got her school pictures back this week and I am SO on the fence about them.

Her smile is a little goofy and even though I specifically asked them NOT to, they retouched Miss S's scars on her cheek and nose. Miss S said a boy at school told her that her pictures are really pretty. I asked her what she thought and she told me that the shirt I made her wear "was SO last year". We have until the 17th to decide if we want retakes....let me know what you think. I just need some unbiased feedback:)

I love this photo! It looks like a magazine shot and I love Miss S's smile - it looks real. The photo says "happy" - the apple that didn't fall far from the tree.

But, I have to say... I'm so with you on not wanting touch ups. I could write paragraphs about that, but I suspect we're on the same wavelength.

Gosh, I think it's adorable. (Especially for a school picture.)

Her comment about the shirt cracks me up.

I think it's a lovely photo...very natural looking. That smile is so genuine :o)

yeah, her smile is different, like someone caught her between smile and laugh.

I'd really be worried about that shirt though...You're going to get confused whenever you see it and wonder "Was this 2007 or 2006?" LOL!

I've never heard of school photos being retouched, what is the world coming to. If she has a scar, she has a scar. My daughter had a little acne this year and I told her "Well we will know in years to come that Year 7 you got acne".
Her smile is a little goofy as you say but what the hell. I'm sure she gets that face all the time.
I would have a reshot if only to have her scars and blemishes showing who she "really" is this year. Love her comment about the shirt.
Have a great weekend.

She looks really cute! That's hilarious what she said, though. If you got retakes, would you be able to choose between the two or would you be stuck with the 2nd ones no matter what? If you can pick, I'd say you have nothing to lose by trying again in a shirt she likes better and without the touch-up. But the pic you have now is adorable, too--besides, didn't we ALL have goofy smiles in our school pics? :) lol

oh, I love it! She's adorable and I love the shirt, but hey, I'm into "retro". Our picture day is tomorrow and I'm just hoping for combed hair and no "rock 'n roll" faces from the P-man.

I think she's beautiful! She has that innocent blossom of youth all over her face.
