When you go away on holiday with members of your family, it’s not unusual for people to take pictures at almost every available opportunity so that you all have something to remember your travels by. But one woman has been left feeling “uncomfortable” after her sister began taking a bizarre interest in photographing her husband.

The woman said her sister started off by taking photos of her son, which was fine, but she then began specifically taking photos of the woman’s son while he was with his dad, before progressing to pictures of just her husband.

Her sister’s behaviour has been upsetting her, but when confronted and asked to stop, her sibling got “defensive” and then began giving her the “silent treatment”.

In a post on Reddit, she said: “My sister takes a lot of pictures of my son, but I’ve noticed she does it excessively when he’s with my husband. I thought I was being paranoid at first but we all went on vacation together and she was constantly taking pictures of them. My husband even commented on how many pictures she was taking of him.

“I asked her to stop taking pictures of him because she was doing it while we were at the beach and it was weird. She was embarrassed because I said it in front of everybody so she got defensive and claimed she was taking photos of my son, but either way, my husband was still in the pictures.

“I told her to stop again which upset her and she started giving me the silent treatment.

“Later on, my parents pulled me aside and told me I shouldn’t have said that to her the way I did because I embarrassed her and now she wanted to go home. They asked me to apologise but I told them she was being weird and she didn’t need that many pictures of my husband or my son.”

Commenters on the post were baffled by the woman’s sister, with many of them saying her actions were inappropriate, and that she should have stopped taking photos when asked.

One person said: “I think it’s perfectly reasonable to ask someone not to take pictures of your child and most likely shirtless husband. Especially your family member.”

While another added: “Sounds like she was being weird. Maybe she just wasn’t thinking, but maybe she was doing a whole lot of thinking. Made him uncomfortable too. Sure, it’s usually best to pull someone aside, but sometimes a good shock is what they need. Doubt she’ll do anything like this again.”

And a third posted: “I vote weird. Tell her to simply not do it.”

But some others believed the mum could have handled the situation better by talking to her sister privately, so as not to embarrass her.

Someone wrote: “You could have handled the situation better and pulled her aside and told her that he does not enjoy having his picture taken or that it makes you uncomfortable.”

As someone else agreed, posting: “You should have expressed your discomfort to her privately. Maybe asked her questions and opened a dialogue. Your concerns are valid. Your feelings are valid. But the way you went about expressing that was poorly done.”
