    Re: Photo sessions for everything....ugh

    I agree with marking special occasions with photos but not necessarily a professional for every little event. I admit I take a lot of selfies (not like every single day like some people but idk a few a month) mainly because I'm half the country away at school and my family wants to see how my life is.

    I think that might be the root of what annoys me about this. I probably wouldn't care much if people did photo sessions for everything and framed them on their walls, put them in albums, or stored them in digital photo frames, but every time I go online, it looks like everyone is trying to be in a magazine. Likewise, it wouldn't bother me if people had candids of that stuff online. It just feels a little show-offy.

    Plus, maybe separate from the photo thing but related is the celebrations for every little thing.

    Edit: Like Thal and a few others here, I'm also not a selfie hater by default. It does bother me when people post them constantly, but they don't bug me overall. I used to travel alone and still know a lot of people who do, so I understand the practicality of it in a lot of cases (not -just- travelling).

    I do post a lot of pictures...but part of that is because I use some social media like a journal/photo album, and the other is because I live halfway across the country from most of my family and friends...and especially when it come to grandparents, that matters.

    Also, as a photographer, mother, aunt, etc....I do not understand overly dramatic gender reveals. They bug me. So much. And when I see professional photography for that, along with like 70 images (at most I could understand 3-7 depending on the method), it drives me crazy.

    I do like to post pictures of the kid when I have him.

    I also like to post pictures when I travel. I dont like to take a lot of pictures of myself though. I wish I had some more pictures. I have almost no good pictures of myself in the military. I just want one good pic of myself in uniform so I can have more ammo in my vain attempt to impress the lasies of the world.

    I have nothing against that. It's a good way to stay in touch! I actually really enjoy seeing pictures of friends' kids, gardens, homemade meals, projects, and other stuff, and don't even mind if they post daily. It's the people who constantly stage everything like their facebook page is a magazine that bug me. Like, one person in my network got two separate sets of engagement photos done — one when she was first engaged a year ago, and another now. It's like, why? We already got your "Save the Date" card with your first set of professional pics in the mail. Why are you doing it *again*?
