To think dd's class photos will look more dated in 20 years than mine?

Just got the proofs of dd's class photo. It is made up of photos of 3 or 4 kids in silly poses photo-shopped together to make one big panorama against a stark white background. AIBU to think this will look very dated very soon, whereas mine from 20+ years ago with rows of kids sitting and standing on benches aren't particularly dated now?

They haven't done DD's yet but I am hoping for an old skool one.

I fondly remember whole school picture day and the scramble to be on the end of a row - where if you were quick and according to legend you could run round the back and be in the end result twice.

I like them. My DSs school only does it for reception and year 6 though so only 2 photos per child to buy. Ours comes with a frame if you pay a bit extra so they will be going on the wall as soon as I work out where I can put 8 of them together.

I quite like them, DDs school only do them in Year R and 6. Her YR pic is fab, not forced at all - all friendship groups, big genuine smiles .

I don't have a problem with them looking dated, that's the point isn't it? (ie embarrassing pics of days gone by Grin )

Our school has tried these, they have also recently surveyed parents to see if we would prefer traditional or this alternative style (her individual one was even worse ) I am hoping majority have opted for traditional.....
