To think that black and white professional photos of half naked parents with new babies on FB are a bit cringe.

So don't do it with a child of yours then

Jojoanna Sun 02-Mar-14 21:26:17

They can be a bit tasteless

Please tell Simon Cowell confused

Haven't got one myself (not a decent pic of me exists grin ) but I think, if tastefully done, they can look great.

Ah, I thought this was a reminiscence thread. I was going to wax lyrical about my exploding cocktail and rainbow make up androgynous youth.

I certainly wouldn't do one, being a fat old bird!

Those who are fit and gorgeous should though, as a record of their fitness and gorgeousness!

Jojoanna Sun 02-Mar-14 21:36:20

Don't think I would put them on FB. But I'm not young or gorgeous

what mammatj said.

I have seen one on FB where he is bare chested laying on the floor and has babies on his chest and the dm is sort of half crouched next to them eyes closed,,,seemed cringe. Maybe it's arty? Maybe iabu

It's all a bit look at me

NeedsAsockamnesty Mon 03-Mar-14 01:02:35

A bit look at me,

Is that not the entire point of photographs?

Viardo Mon 03-Mar-14 01:12:48

Yes that's true that is the point of pictures

Bogeyface Mon 03-Mar-14 01:58:11

Is that not the entire point of photographs?

No. The point of photos is "awww...look at us!" said 20 years after the photo was taken by the people in it.

Posting it on FB is very "look at meeee!" attention seeking.

Don't ever look up engagement photo ideas on Pinterest. Apparently getting married in America gives you celebrity status.

Jojoanna Mon 03-Mar-14 07:16:50

By the sound if it so does having a baby.

Sarahschuster Mon 03-Mar-14 09:37:20

Ultimate cringe. YANBU.

deakymom Mon 03-Mar-14 10:15:04

the posed sleeping baby pictures are also favoured with the half naked pics brigade i really wish they would let that child sleep wink

to be honest when i look at my photos i want to see my children how they really are not how i want them seen x

mrsjay Mon 03-Mar-14 10:16:20

I rememeber the baby from the original poster was on big fat quiz of the year with stubble god that made me feel ancient grin

YANBU i blame instagram myself it is very cringey

AMumInScotland Mon 03-Mar-14 10:34:38

I though theis was going to be about the girl in the tennis dress scratching her butt grin

viardo Mon 03-Mar-14 11:05:37
