A black eye right before pictures?! Really?!

Agh! My 19 y/o went to a concert 2 days before we were to get professional portraits done & got a black eye in the mosh pit! It's like when he was 2 y/o all over again w/ the permanent bruise on his forehead from falling all the time! -LOL I think he did it to look cool! Thank God for make up! Any of you have picture mishaps?

  • Right before my wedding, my 4 year old had 4 stitches across his eyebrow, my youngest son fell on a skateboard right before his 1st day of kindergarten (wasn't actually riding it, was just sitting on it) anyway, he scraped his face right under his nose and the scab looked like a hitler moustache in the pictures.

  • I have a 4 year old, every year he gets a birthday pic and every year he has some scape or boo boo somewhere.

  • Get some yellow make up/ concealer, stage make up if you can get it. I didn't have pictures to do but I got a beautiful shines right before a big formal event in college, and the yellow is really good at cancelling out the purple bruise esp with a little foundation over it. Assuming of course that he would go along with it.

  • Yes an "retouch" is a wonderful thing. My son was so stressed out before finals that he had deep purple circles under his eyes. He was due to have pictures taken for an award ceremony. I was appalled they took his pic like that. When they came out they were gorgeous. :)

  • Hahahha....this reminds me of my cheerleading picture from when I was like 7. My sister got one of those skinny round brushes stuck in my hair, right in the front middle where bangs would be. (curly hair--she should've know better than to use that brush). Anyway, my mom was LIVID! I had the biggest comb over ever!!

  • When I was 5 I gave my sister a haircut. I chopped off her bangs right up to the scalp. She was 3. LMAO!! I still think it was hilarious although my mom doesn't.

    The next year SHE decided to cut my sister's hair for pictures. Yeah she didn't do much better, she cut my sisters EAR!! Then she turns to cut my hair....HELL NO!! lol
