Even Anne Geddes thinks this might be a stretch.

Ok……. so there IS a snake…..sick….
It isn’t so much the pumpkin posing that makes this picture awkward, it’s the baby’s sour expression! He looks mad..if the baby was smiling, it would be cute!
MOM: “Honey did you remember to throw out that rotten Halloween pumpkin”
MOM “And you also put Jessica down for her nap”
DAD: “YES ….quit nagging me!
An appropriate response to being stuck inside a pumpkin
The spawn of Pumkinhead
what is that around her neck? looks like a snake.
The orange parachute pants are the freakin’ bomb,yo
You guys HAD to invoke Anne Geddes? Urf!
is that a fish underneath that childs chin?
Nobody puts Baby in a pumpkin!
oh, they do, and they did.
HAHA Love the Dirty Dancing reference! Cheesiest line in a cheesy (cute) movie.
you want a face like that in a picture?? stick your baby in a slimy, stinky gourd. works every time!
looks like the emperor of China
I still think it’s a cute picture. If there was a pumpkin big enough for me to climb in and have my picture taken, I would provided I didn’t have to have a snake anywhere near me (yes, I know it’s a ribbon but it looks like a snake)
You gotta wonder what the thought process was on this one, Photographer: Autumn pictures you say? I have a great idea, lets stick a baby in a freshly carved out Gord (cause all of us know you can’t get all the insides out no matter how hard you try) Lets plop part of it on the babies head with that nice squishy gooey feeling to make her absolutely angry, secure it with a ribbon. I think that would be nice! Parent: Oh yes wonderful Idea, and I’ll even pay you to ruin my childs clothing as well as our future relationship as mother and daughter! Photographer: perfect!
“And here we see the elusive pumpkinspawn, emerging from it’s squash shaped shell. Only a few minutes old and it’s already feeling cranky and hungry…run awaaaaaaaaaay!!”
You can tell by her expression – even the kid knows this just ain’t right!
omg, one seriously pissed off baby…. grrrr (hahaha)
Trojan Pumpkin, Baby Ninja.
Now THAT! is funny.
It’s kinda cute I think (I think I’m partial because I think she resembles my daughter), but clearly the baby does not. If looks could kill…….
It’s the not-so-great pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
yea a charlie brown reference…win
“I ‘ve Got your Pumpkin Pie right here!”
at first glance, it looks like there is a snake around the baby`s neck…
The fairy godmother wasn’t kidding.
Was this Carmen MIranda’s child?
I bet she smelled really nice after the picture.
Yeah I’d be pissed off too, kiddo!
Come on now, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater! If you already knew you were having troubles keeping the wife, you shouldn’t go about having offspring as well!
The “thing” under the baby’s chin appears to be plaid ribbon of some kind, tied under the baby’s chin…it looks like it attaches to the pumpkin lid, which would also answer the earlier question of how the lid stays on.
FTW…i actually laughed at that one
Marnie, Do I have to come to Thanksgiving dinner this year?
What is that around the baby’s neck and the top part of the pumpkin?
She has that look because of the treat she left inside the pumpkin.
Finally! An honest opinion on these ridiculous props and poses!
And the little baby sayeth, “Vengeance will me mine when I get to choose your nursing home!!! Muahaha!!!”
(but I bet the baby was thinking that surely there was a better way to find something to do with a hollowed out pumpkin!)
How do they get the pumpkin top to stick to his head? Glue? Duct tape?
What is that brown thing on his neck? I would think it might be clothing, except that it doesn’t match the other side. A crayfish? Slug? Today’s lunch residue?
The “slug” is a plaid strip tied underneath her chin to keep the pumpkin top on.
(Think really bad party hat)
This will answer both your questions:
It’s a cloth tie that’s attached to the pumpkin top & tied under the baby’s chin 🙂
“I’m totally leaving a surprise for you in my pants, and I’ll give you a hint, it’s not a pony”
Thanks for the laughter, I needed it!
Since I’m at a loss of words, I refer you all to the baby’s expression to show my own expression.
Peter Pumpkin eater as an infant.
At first glance it looks like a snake under that baby’s chin. WTH is that??
Looks like the photographer tied this prop hat on with a ribbon. The photography studio industry earned their demise – first the blue sponge paint background, then the fake tree and library sets, then the holiday lunacy!
I hope they changed the pumpkin periodically. Otherwise, it would be horribly smelly and slimy.
I know! That’s what I thought at first.
Yup, I was thinking the same thing. I would be cranky too if I had serpent coild around my neck and mom was taking my picture instead of calling 911
I think it looks like a sardine under her chin…
lol. I thought it looked like a snake also. lol
I thought it was SNAKE TOO! EEK!
I was thinking the same thing
Oh this is too cute!
“Cinderella, The Early Years”
“I will be picking your nursing home. Just remember that.”
Poor kid – I’d be frowning too if I had to sit in a friggin’ pumpkin for my pic.
Looks like a smake around her neck…this is a creepy picture….
I meant SNAKE….
I thought the same thing! A snake with it’s mouth open about to strike……yikes!
That’s exactly what I thought, too. Looks like it’s curling down from pumpkin hat and around the neck, ugh.
Wonder if this is what sent Michael Meyers over the edge? That is one pissed off baby!
that made me laugh out loud!
Maybe this IS Michael Meyers.
I am embarrassed to admit that I have a photo of my own child in a huge pumpkin! I always thought it was cute, but now I am thinking that my friends were just being polite when they said it was darling. Perhaps it really is as awkward as this one!
Send it! Send it!
It’s not so much the pumpkin, but the pumpkin stem hat that disturbs me.
Agreed! If there was no stem on top of this poor childs head it would be a different story
They can post yours and this one as a battle! SEND IT IN!!!
I have one like this too of my oldest son when he was 5 months old. I’ve never thought it was an awkward photo. I was going to send it in but my wife will not let me.
AGREE! How about a special AFP for Autumn? Everybody submit their pumpkin pics!
Ha! What really happens when you put kids in vegetables. Caption should have read – “Suck it Anne Geddes.”
LOL outstanding! I completely agree!
YES!!!! That would have been sweeeeet!!!
I think it’s cute! If a bit icky inside, though….
One day, lady, I’ll be bigger than you. Your picture shall be in a giant acorn and I shall dress you like a squirrel. Oh yes, I will have my revenge.
The bad seed.
20 years from now the mom will be looking at this pic, shaking her head and saying, “Maybe this is the root of all his issue’s. Tsk, tsk.”
