The Worst School Pictures Ever (Since Last Time)

November 23rd, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  4 Comments

Sasha-school-picsJust over seven months ago, Sasha sat for a set of class photos that, at the time, I deemed horrific:

Now, Sasha’s a pretty photogenic kid, but in these images, with their cheaply greenscreened backgrounds, she looks awful. Uncomfortable, awkward, unhappy. … Oh god, and her hair!

Well, the photographer her school inexplicably keeps hiring has done it again! It’s not so much the miserable expression on Sasha’s face—no one can keep her from looking like that—but the truly amateurish greenscreening of the backgrounds. What’s awesome is that Sasha’s dress had green elements in it, so the backgrounds get blended into her body as well. Wow. Next time we’re definitely dressing her in green, head to toe.

At least this time her hair’s not so awful.

    Even though it’s horrible, it’s still cute. A great keepsake. One of my girls does that same expression, which makes her look exactly like her paternal great-grandpa, a crusty ol’ cowpoke.
