Did anybody else see the picture of the littld girl with tape on her mouth and her hands and feet tied with christmas lights? If she tried to do that to my child i would leave, not a good idea, u can tell she doesnt have children. Cant believe she did that!

It said feel free to bring props and that is what that child's mother brought and was completely the mothers idea. If you don't like her work don't use her! It is that simple! I personally didn't like or understand the concept of that picture but thought all the pictures were good!

I thought the picture was unique and was obviously displaying a sense of humor. The kid didn't look like she was uncomfortable. And honestly, what mother hasn't thought (jokingly) about duct-taping their kids' mouth shut to get even five minutes peace? It was in good fun and the pic was definitely unique. I doubt the mother is abusive.

If that is true, as a photographer, I would have refused to take the picture, and I think you better look at the picture again, the little girl does not have a happy look on her face. Next year when they are putting up the tree she will probably be wondering if Mommy or the photographer is going to tie her up again and put tape on her mouth. Not cute, not funny, definately disturbing and borderline child abuse. I think this mother should be reported to the hotline and checked out, if this is her idea of cute and funny.

I think you people should get a grip and look at it from the humorous side of it. If the mother was really abusive, do you really think she would have pictures made like that???? Most folks enjoy having fun with their kids and I am sure the mother prepared the child for the pictures. GEEZE!!!

Wow! I can't believe a person would go to that level to judge a mother, or photographer, by one photo. I haven't seen the picture personally, but were there other pictures with that same girl or family? I'm sure if there isn't, than she would be happy to post other pics up. And to report her to whatever you said, how much proof do you have? One picture......I'm sure that will not go far!

You shouldn't have to prepare a child for your warped humor.

You would be surprised at what they can do just on the word of one person. You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words..........

Uh oh! Looks like someone is raking coals over some sort of personal vendetta. Photography is photography. If you don't like the photo, write a letter to your congressman. Your opinion isn't the weight of the world, and you can't possibly assume the intentions, emotions, or demeanor of the photographer or the mother and child.

Well then go for it. That's pretty sad!

No, what's sad is that a Mother or photographer either one would put tape over a childs mouth and wrap hot lights around them like they are tied up. East Prairie is such a hole in the wall that you people think this is acceptable.

Would it have been better if she put a heart shaped sticker on top of the tape?

Or maybe she should have written "Do not open until Christmas." Maybe then it would've been deemed acceptable by the "Holiest of Holies" here. You people sure are proud of yourselves. You act as though yours is the final authority and that anyone who disagrees must be inept; or worse, ABUSIVE! No one cares what you think or they would have consulted you before posting the picture!

I've seen that idea on Pinterest. Not sure I get what purpose the tape served but I sure don't think it has anything to do with abuse!!!

Ok, if I put tape over my dogs mouth and wrapped lights around it and took a picture and posted it would you think that was cute? There would be people jumping up and down if I treated an animal like that, but it's ok to do it to a child? Maybe I AM being a prude, but that is just a little too much for me.

FYI it is a dang photo meant to be humorous and I know for a fact because we also did my child's photos with Gingersnapz and that the tape isn't even wrapped around the child she could move her hands if she wanted to and the tape on her mouth isn't sticky she photoshopped the moms hand out! If you don't like her work or want to complain don't go to her and don't look at her work... This is her hobby not full time job at least it's better than the "pro's" in this town!

I'm sorry someone has a problem with the silent night photo. Why don't you call and talk to us like an adult instead of being a coward on Topix? Or are you just jealous you aren't that creative? Again if you have a problem feel free to contact us. Have a night day.

Why does every comment have to be because someone is jealous? What in the world would I have to be jealous of? You call me a coward, seems like you are a bit of a coward too, is cwag Mallory or Chris? Mallory seems to have an opinion about everybody and everything, but when someone else has an opinion it is jealousy. hmmmmmmmm, so that would make her jealous of everyone she has ever had an opinion about? I am not jealous, just don't like the picture and feel bad for the little girl in the picture and don't want it to happen to another child. When Mallory has kids of her own she will understand.
