My friend is a photographer. She can make any model look like a goddess with her expert Photoshop skills. I use it too, mostly for work, and not so much for editing photos. But one time a friend asked me to create her CD cover and liner notes. She's an attractive woman with a beautiful smile, but she doesn't use sunscreen and her skin is lined and freckled. She gave me a photo to use - she wasn't all that thrilled with it. So I edited the photo a bit. I evened out her skintone by fading the bigger freckles and minimized the lines around her eyes and in her neck. I didn't overdo it, and I never told her what I did. She loved the cover!

I didn't say they were.
But if you're willing to cut out "toxic" relatives all together, why should it be unnaceptable to not invite obnoxious ones to your housewarming party?
LW is not worried about offending the pain in the arse cousins. Lw is worried about offending their parents who LW loves. From the sounds of it, if the parents were not in the picture, LW would have zero problem cutting the pains in the arse out. So the question is, what will be less painful to the LW, having to put up with them for an evening, or upsetting the beloved aunt and uncle by excluding them?

LW1 - i do a lot of candids and put together collages of each nephew after each visit. i realized that i have very few photos of me in there. Some people i don't get flattering head-on shots, but the side ones are better. try geting an over step-monster's shoulder shot of her reading to the kid, or cuddling. one where you can tell it's her but whwere she has less to bitch about. and i agree about not lettign her see the shots after they're taken.

LW2 - invite who you wnat...

I'm sure her beloved aunt and uncle would get over it.

Regardless, that is lw's concern and only LW can decide for herself which is a less pleasant problem to deal with.

Read Sgt_Smith's post on the previous page. Some people wouldn't get over it, or wouldn't get over it quickly. Tonka is right; LW has to weigh the options and take her best shot.

Tonka's posts change my mind on a letter here probably more than anybody else. Or at least open my mind to another possibility, or the side of a story the LW didn't present (and I didn't even consider).

If she's as "close" to her aunt and uncle as she claims, and their "very adult" children have a history of being rude and obnoxious towards the LW, I think the aunt and uncle wouldn't feel too slighted.

As opposed to his current mantra of Deny it, decry it, detest it?

I think her aunt and uncle would feel MORE slighted if LW leaves out those cousins.

I don't see why.

Not surprising, with you head so far up your butt it's a wonder you can see at all.

Thank you for adding absolutely nothing of value to the discussion. Not that I would expect you to, given your limited mental capacity and all.

Race doesn't seem estranged from his daughter. I think she lives several states away and they visit one another.
