I ran across a really cute idea on pinterest where a lady took photos of her kids in the bathtub and hung them on the wall and had a vinyl quote saying "splish splash I was taking a bath". I really want to do this for my son's bathroom. I have a couple of bathtime pictures that I took with my digital camera of him playing in the bathtub with his bath crayons and bath toys. Is it inappropriate that I have these pictures and secondly, is it inappropriate to get one copied and frame it for wall art in the bathroom?
The reason why I am bringing this up is because I read an article where this couple lost custody of their three girls because they went on vacation and the mom took pictures of her girls playing in the bathtub. She took the disk and had all of her vacation pics printed and the Walmart associate called the police. As I was reading the article, I was thinking that this is absurd. I feel that there is a difference. So, I am thinking could I get in trouble because I have pictures of my son? I feel that it is ridiculous for people to think that taking photos of your kids because they are making memories is some sort of child pornography and parents who do take pictures should be punished. I will post a link to the article here: http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/...
I know that there is a very fine and gray line of what is right and what is wrong.
