It is that time of year when kids all across the nation are feeling a lot like Britney Spears. Like Britney they are being stalked by a relentless horde of camera welding fanatics. Unlike Britney’s bothersome band of followers, this picture taking faction is known as the “Momarazzi.”
What is a Momarazzi? Well, they are extremely determined paparazzi that often drive mini vans and typically have given birth to their subject matter.
If you are the teenager of a Momarazzi, be warned, there is no better photo snapping season than the spring. Your sporting events, proms and graduations provide her with plenty of opportunity to take your picture over and over and over again.
How do I know all this? Well I recently received an email from a Momarazzi brazenly sharing her story. She writes: “My daughter went to her senior prom this weekend. And, as I am a BIG fan of CEIVA, I sent the pre-prom pictures to everyone’s CEIVA as my network is about 20 strong. Parents were invited only to the pre-prom party. The kids could not make a move without a barrage of Moms snapping photos. It was quite the scene which now is showcased on CEIVAS from coast to coast! “
You might be surprised to know that there was once a time when there were no Momarazzis. You see in the “olden days” Moms didn’t carry cameras with them everywhere they went; and if and when they did snap a photo or two, its distribution was expensive and slow.
But all that changed for Moms when digital cameras and CEIVA digital frames came along. Digital cameras made it free and easy to take your picture. CEIVA provided an “overnight distribution network” direct to an audience hungering for pictures of you…. your grandparents and relatives! Easy distribution was the final factor that turned your Mom into a Momarazzi. Swift access to a family of digital picture frames gives her the drive, motivation and purpose she needs.
What can you do to stop the Momarazzi? I hate to say this, but except for smiling there is not much that you can do. You might as well face the fact that as long as you are under her roof, you are also within her focal range.
So until the next post… that’s what CeivaJoe knows!
