Amy Haehl thinks this is very cute.
A photographer in Shelbyville, Indiana, posted a photo of a baby wearing a pink bunny costume on her “Coffee Creek Studio” page on Tuesday afternoon, with Lalfi in the Christmas Story.
She hopes that Hoosier Ralphie will fall asleep on the sofa and grab a wooden replica of a miniature Red Ryder BB gun. “It will add some positive and interesting things to everyone’s news.”
Haehl added a disclaimer to the post and wrote: “The BB gun is made of wood to make sure he doesn’t shoot his eyes when making this photo.”
But not everyone is very happy.
“Now you will cancel your attention. Who will take a picture of a baby and a gun for money. This waste, because you are so talented. Think about your lack of principles,” one commenter wrote.
“In addition, you don’t like or dislike.” “Very offensive. What do you think about the parents of babies killed in Newtown who would like to see this photo? Guns will never be “cute”, not even as props Or movie reference. Disgusting.”
Haehl replied that she did not have the cost of taking a photo, and she made it clear that the gun was a replica of the original post.
Since Tuesday, her post has been close to nearly 3,000 and shared nearly 1,500. And there are many positive comments to counter negative comments.
“This makes my life,” one lady wrote.
“I will regenerate a child to let you take such a picture for me!!!” a mother exclaimed.
“I hope this will make it Allen!” wrote another admirer.
Haehl wrote on the Coffee Creek Studio Facebook page on Thursday that she knows that some people may be offended by photos.
“Of course I know… I seized the opportunity,” she wrote. “This photo does not mean encouraging gun violence or offending anyone who is affected by gun violence.”
Haehl writes that her intention is to evoke laughter and love.
“The purpose of this photo is to bring a smile to people’s faces,” she wrote. “This photo is not about a baby with a ‘gun’… but about love, tradition, family and happiness.”
