Stewart, who has been suspended from her job in Oberlin (35 miles southwest of Cleveland) pending the outcome of the trial, has systematically photographed her “miracle” daughter, born after several miscarriages, the girl's entire life. She has taken some 40,000 pictures in all. Among the snapshots were a few of the eight-year-old in the bathtub last summer. When an area photography lab turned the pictures over to the police, Stewart faced criminal prosecution.



As an aside, while not criminal, 40,000 pictures of your child? She may just be a tad obsessed :shock:


How many comics do you own?

The "protect the kids" movement is downright scary sometimes. I wouldn't go around taking naked pics of my child for no reason, but there are some instances (first baths, first time on potty, etc.) where it makes sense. And yes, I'd share those photos with my mom and other people of my family because I'm a proud parent. I'm just afraid stuff like that could get me a five-year sentence and a busted sphincter in the big house.

There have been times when I've seemed uneasy about letting my diaper-rashed daughter run around naked in the house for fear of some zealot jackass calling the cops.

But I could not find one of the Cleveland Plain Dealer articles about this. It was a big deal at the time. Many people in the area were outraged.


No, I did further research. She raised $35,000 from donation for a defense.

Charges were dropped when she agreed to give up the two photos in particular and have them destroyed.

I would call that an outlier case. Weird, and extreme, but not common.

I remember that many people thought it was the DA (or maybe sheriff?) who more or less was making a name for himself with the whole fiasco. Some people are idiots when given power.

It gets you a bad name though.

Sometimes, common sense would solve many of these issues.

In the end, it was just bathing pics of her own kid, who was pretty little.

If the kid's 8, that's only 13 pics a day. That's not obsessed, especially if you've got a digital camera. 13 pics a day is like a typical Thursday for us.

If you add all the pics I ever took, all the pics my parents ever took, all the pics my grandparents ever took, I doubt we'd be even close to 40,000 pictures.

Much less of one subject.

Their kids people. Let them be free. Let some things fade to memory :lol:

The generations before you were limited by film, the cost of developing, and finding a place to store the physical pics.

Our new camera can take 5 shots in 3 seconds, and with how cheap hard drives are, we can store every single one if we wanted.

I think you just don't have any kind of reference to how some people feel about their kids, especially when there's been some difficulty involved. It took us over 2 years of trying before we concieved our son, and that's nothing compared to the level of hardship some people go through just to have their own children. When you put that much effort in, and despite the obvious jokes, it's not really all fun, you've already got an emotional investment in the child that for many manifests in a desire to record every single moment.

There's nothing our picture record has taken away from our kids. And even at just almost 3 years old, I'm totally thankful we have so many pics of him as a baby, because I really don't have many first-hand memories of him that way. When you see them grow every day, I don't think your mind stores images of them from the past the same way.
