Would you have your kids school pictures fixed if you could?

I take pictures in preschools and then we go back and sell them a week later. A lot of people don't like the pictures if their kids have bruises or scratches so we offer to have them taken out. One lady wanted the bags under her daughter's eyes fixed. I just think that's what your kid looks like right? Why change it?

  • I don't think I would. I don't even dress her up for pictures. :-) I figure it's just a permanent thing of how she is, and she is usually dressed great, beautiful for the first 10 minutes of the day, then trips, hair gets dirty, tights get torn, all that. Why change?

    I remember my mom trying to have my brother's kindergarten picture changed. He cut his own hair the night before and his bangs went in zig zags from his hair line to his eyebrows. :-) He looks so funny it's cute!

  • I wouldn't change the pictures...but ya gotta admit... those pics aren't really the best ones done of kids.... mine from when I was little are really quite funny...teeth missing and the bangs pulled over up wayyyyy too sticking out.. they don't take time...

  • I can't imagine wanting to change or fix my kids' pictures! And my grandkids....they all looked adorable. Scratches and bruises? That;s what happens to kids who play and have fun. Unless a kid has a bruise as a result of a parent's abuse and that is why theywant you to "fix" the picture. But, lets not go there......

  • No, I wouldn't fix them. We need those goofy pictures to show their boyfriends and girlfriends when they're older.

  • some parents could get up a little earlier on picture day and take better care of their kids, making sure their hair is fixed and clothes are neat. other than that, that's your kid!

  • I would never do that. My son is gorgeous without touch-ups!

  • And not to mention, that bad haircut, or bruise will most likely have a story with it, and you'll like remembering it when they're older. :)

  • No, I wouldn't. If I didn't like the pictures, I just wouldn't buy them. Or I would only buy the smallest package available.
