I’m not one of those girls who goes gaga for every baby she sees. I like some babies and only when they’re behaving themselves. What I don’t like is baby photography. I can’t stand seeing a giant picture of a misshapen rat head printed in the newspaper or entire albums of sleeping babies posed in all sorts of stupid hats with ridiculous props a la Anne Geddes. It creeps me out and just plain makes me mad.
The absolute worst offenders are those photographers who pose infants in ways that make them look like adults. They’ll take their tiny, floppy arms and prop them up so that their tiny, wrinkled heads sit atop them like they’re some sort of dead yet pensive elves.
Mommies of the world, I am begging you to cease and desist. Or at least stop posting this junk on Facebook so I can sleep at night without horrifying dreams.
