Family has been visiting for the past two weekends. They were ALL very aware that I was taking pictures of everybody, especially if they came near my son (who is the focus for 98% of my photos). I posted them on Facebook. ONE out of the 6 people who were in the pictures is trying to get me to take off every single picture that has her in it.
I made sure she was no longer 'tagged' in any photos, which I see as a viable compromise. The reason she does not want me to post photos of her is because she thinks she's 'fat'.
I feel that it is my right to post pictures of my son, no matter who is in the background, and if you are aware that I have a camera in your face, it is up to YOU to specify if you do not want them to be seen by anybody or if you do not want the pictures to be taken at all if you are in them. She said that she was "disappointed" in me because I didn't specifically ask for her permission to post photos that she is in. There was not one single picture that had only her in it, and the only pictures I have of my uncle have her in them. I have my privacy settings so that only my friends can see the photos, so almost everybody who could look at them knows her.
I think she's over-reacting... does anybody else? I refuse to take down pictures of my son, though. I'm stubborn about that one.
