Dear Stroller Manufacturers,
You mean the world to me, you really do. My addiction would be impossible without you. So I hope you understand that this is coming straight from my heart when I say:
What is wrong with your photographer?!?!?! Or art director or whoever it is that's in charge of your photo shoots?
I am SO SICK of looking at pictures of real strollers, holding real babies being pushed by....barely legal, six foot tall, perfectly coifed, 100 pound models!!
I understand that you're appealing to our fantasies. That's why your photoshoots also tend to look like they were taken at some villa in Italy. Because deep down all of us (apparently) wish we were barely legal, six foot tall, perfectly coifed, 100 pound models living in Italy with our smiling babies and our tall, dark, handsome husbands. At the very least I don't think many of us would complain if that were the case.
But you know what? We don't. And it's getting ridiculous. Some of these models are gingerly holding the babies or smiling down at them as if they've never even SEEN a baby before let alone a cheeseburger. And maybe they haven't.
Obviously you had to hire some sweet baby to model your stroller. Next time how about you hire that baby's REAL mom for your photoshoot. You probably had to fly her to Italy with you anyway so why not give her a blow out and a manicure for free? I guarantee she will sell that stroller for you like no one else and the smile on her and her baby's face will be totally genuine.
