When this mum first saw her son’s school pictures, she pretty much lost it. That was until the internet helped change her mind.
The mum shared the images on Facebook and her total frustration at them, “I’m so mad right now! I checked my sons book bag and find these!!!!”
But you see the thing is, she was the only one mad about them. Everyone else absolutely loved them.
To her credit, when her son’s school pictures started going viral and were shared pretty much everywhere, and the internet fell completely in love with her son, she had a total change of heart.
Her original post attracted 34,000 comments and 42,000 shares.
In a follow up post the mum shared:
“Please allow me to explain my first reaction and how I feel now…..
Firstly, we have decided to purchase the photos.
I was initially upset because I was expecting a traditional school picture. I have spoken with representatives at Lifetouch School Photography who simply told me the issue would be escalated and someone would follow up. I saw an article that said free spirited photos are their policy. If I had known, I’d have no reason to feel upset about not getting a traditional picture. Regardless, knowing that his silly picture brought joy all over the world, how can I continue to be flustered?
Andrew has always been a silly kid with a HUGE personality! He has taken traditional professional pictures in a school setting in the past that were wonderful. That is the reason this really threw this mom for a loop!
I love my son. All the positive comments really warmed my heart. They opened my eyes to see that everything doesn’t need to be cookie cutter. Being yourself is even more amazing! Drew sends his love and says thanks again for the love!”
Would you be upset to receive these photo’s?
