Update: Senior Pictures
Please see previous blog for background: http://www.steptalk.org/node/197671
I ended up going with DH, the poster that said it was a “team DH thing” was right.
I had 3 predictions:
1. BM & SS17 would be late.
2. SS17 would have messy uncombed hair.
3. SS17 would not be wearing an undershirt under his white dress shirt.
I was a right about all 3 predictions.
BM & SS17 were 40 minutes late. DH and I were 5 minutes early; the photographer was 5 minutes late. In fact the photographer was packing up his equipment to leave, I made DH introduce himself to the photographer. The photographer waited while DH called BM to get an ETA.
SS17 shows up with BM and wearing his new suit and his hair looks awful. DH asks him about it and SS17 said BM wanted his hair this way. Throughout the day SS17 was trying to comb it with his fingers.
SS17’s moobies were on full display. The only thing DH asked BM to do was to buy SS17 undershirts. She didn’t. He looked trashy but whatever. BM made such a huge deal about getting SS17 a suit. DH and I took him suit shopping, spent the better part of a Saturday buying dress clothes and shoes for SS17. And SS17 only wore the suit for 6 pictures. He then changed into a polo shirt and jeans for the rest of the photos.
When we were leaving BM opened her trunk and the suit was laying there, balled up with, all the other junk in her trunk. So disappointing, but not unexpected.
We got the proofs and DH doesn’t like them. DH now wants me to schedule a separate sitting for SS17 when we get our family picture taken for Christmas. I had suggested this earlier but it nobody listens.
At least I got to spend a nice fall day in the park.
Its comical BM tries to act all snobby – lives in a wealthy suburb, had the pictures taken at Rich People Park, but the reality is she’s trashy and people just know by looking at her, and sadly SS17 too.
