Trendy



I've noticed a trend among mommy bloggers. They like to wash out the pictures of their babies and then increase the contrast to result in the baby's eyes looking super amazing. This also serves to make any skin blemishes disappear. I'm torn because on the one hand I think it's kind of stupid to feel that you must change the picture to make your baby look more beautiful, as if they aren't gorgeous enough already. Kinda the same way I feel about getting a boob job. On the other hand, well, it works. And unlike a boob job, its free, painless, and takes about 5 seconds. I suppose my analogy is probably flawed but I'm sure you can see a little bit what I mean. In conclusion, I'm slightly ashamed of myself, but look how big, blue and gorgeous my baby's eyes are?

  1. LOL! That's pretty rad, I must say. Of course, I honestly don't think Zoey needed it in the slightest, but I can see the appeal. It REALLLLLY brings out her beautiful blue eyes!!

    I don't know how much it would do for Ryker, since he's got brown eyes and they're in a wide-eyed state (a genetic trait that runs in my family) like half the time. I suppose it might help hide the occasional scratches on his face when he's claws himself. Hmmmm...

  2. This is how it starts...you're pretty much one step away from getting a boob with this kind of rationale.

  3. I'm afraid this is a bad example for my granddaughter, leading her to believe she's not beautiful enough on her own. Her eyes are gorgeous without photo-editing, in my humble and totally unbiased opinion.

  4. I think you should do the same thing with a pic of your face, right next to hers!
