The family photo my mother in law has hanging in her living room has me photoshopped out of it.
Hi everyone, this is a bit of a strange situation and I’m not quite sure how to handle it.
My husband and I have been married for 11 years. His parents recently bought a new home. We (me, husband, kids) went to visit them. The house was beautiful, in the living room there are a lot of beautiful framed photos.
One of the larger ones is a picture of the entire family on a vacation that we took earlier in the year. This vacation was extended family as well, so there are about 20 people in the photo. I also have this photo hanging up in my home.
The difference is-I was edited out of this picture.
In the original picture, I’m sitting next to my husband, holding one of our sons on my lap, while our other son is standing between the two of us.
In this photo, my son is sitting on my husband’s lap and our other son is standing directly in front of him. I know it’s the same photo, my family is making the same exact expressions, it’s not like there was some secret second photo taken without my knowledge.
I pointed this out to my husband who seemed just as baffled as me. He bought it up to his mother who said she had no idea how or why that would’ve happened, she is adamant that she used the same photo that my husband’s cousin sent to everyone in the group text but when we open up that photo I’m clearly in it.
She’s insistent that she has no idea how this happened, (as is my father in law, and he didn’t have anything to do with developing/framing the photos etc anyway).
I don’t have a bad relationship with her as far as I know, I have no idea why she would photoshop me out of a family photo.
