Photo Dilema

When Liam's first set of school pictures came back, we were disappointed that there was a huge glare from his glasses.


The photographer offered to touch it up digitally, but 2 years ago he did a lousy job doing the same thing.

So this year we decided to have a retake. Liam can't be the only kid that wears glasses, and how hard can it be to tell a kid to tuck his chin in so that his glasses are at a better angle to avoid the glare? Instead, the photographer's solution on retake was to have Liam take his glasses off.

I'm torn on this one.  To me, that doesn't look like Liam.  He has worn glasses since he was 5 years old. He puts them on before he gets out of bed and takes them off as he turns off his bedside lamp.  We rarely see him without them on.

So the question now is, do I order either of these pictures, or do I simply take my own version and print off copies for friends and family?  I'd love to hear everyone's feedback!

How annoying!!! Elena always has her glasses in for school pictures and we've never had a problem. I agree he doesn't look like himself without them and would retake on your own. Man though he has grown up!

Wow, that's the first time I've seen him without glasses in forever. Maybe take a photo on your own & decide between the three. If you prefer yours but don't want to print them yourself, there are tons of websites where you can upload them & order photo packages.
