Hi recently took my 5 month old dd to have her some professional photos taken in a studio. I was a bit taken aback when he suggested removing all her clothes except her nappy and wrapping her lower half in a white towel for the latter half of the session.
He then laughed and said 'her first topless shoot!'
Am i being unreasonable in thinking this is creepy and unprofessional?
I think a lot of people like to take pics like this of their babies, so in that sense its not so unusual. Personally I don't like it, and like you I would have said no, I would rather keep baby in their clothes. His comment was a bit crude, but probably not meant to be offensive. He offered that suggestion, you declined, I think no need to dwell on it as it may be fairly common-place. So yab a tiny bit u, although I understand your sentiments.
it wasn't the fact that she was topless that bothered me, it was the coment which was said in a rather pervy way. however, i have to be honest and admit that i reacted by sniggering at the time and thinking bout it later.
I think his comment could be taken the wrong way, easily. YABU to a point because DS had his baby photos done when he was around 6mo and he had one with just his nappy on. Didn't think it was pervy at all. If you don't like these kind of photos, then at least you had the decency to say there and then, which is good.
