Is it okay to ask that your tall child be front and center in the class picture because you don't want him hidden in the back.  Very curious what others say.

Um. No? I do not think so and I have a tall son who is always in the back row. How would that be fair blocking other kids? The photographer is responsible for getting everyone's faces...

I'm sure you could ask, not sure what the answer would be they like to stick tall kids in the back so that they can see the short kids.

 Then shorter kids would be blocked by yours and make the photo look off. Everyone would love for their child to be front and center.

 I wouldn't. I would just let the picture be taken how the photographer sees fit.

 I'd let the photographer do his/her job. They're usually pretty good at making sure you can see everyone.

Don't have that problem.  Our class picture is a collage of all the individual student pictures, put together on one photo page.

Maybe you can request they switch to something like that instead, if it bothers you so much that your child is always in the back.

I'm not sure because my kids are short, so they're always in the front row! But I'd say just let the photographer organize the kids - they usually know how to make it look best without cropping anyone out of the picture.

 No...and my kids are the biggest kids in the class.  The photographer knows her job and I can always see my boys' smiling faces in the pictures.
