Backstage in the Bedroom--NOT.

A flurry of recent posts about the new “trend” of morning-after wedding photos certainly has made people sit up and take notice. And the general consensus appears to be a resounding “yuck."

In case you missed it, there's a small bunch of wedding photographers out there pushing the idea of selling couples a morning after photo session, dropping in on their bedroom after their first night of wedded bliss to capture the love and passion of the connubial bed.  Think rumpled bed covers, entwined bodies in various stages of undress lolling upside down in the bed, shots through wet, blurry shower doors with butt cheeks pressed against the glass.

Of course the reality is that the majority of newlyweds don't wake up the next morning ready to audition for 50 Shades of Grey. They're more likely to look like the poor girl at the top of this blog.

Well, you can leave me out of this one. I don't want to see my sister or best friend in her most private, intimate moments. Not any more than I want to look at myself naked in a full-length mirror. Some things are better kept private--even in a world where every bit of personal trivia seems to be fair game,

But maybe I shouldn't get too upset. The "trend" does not seem to be catching on. People are talking about it, but few are doing it. Here is one of my favorite blogs on this topic.
