Doesn’t everyone take naked pictures of their kids?

They called me a child pornographer | Salon Life

Jody Jenkins has tells a terrifying cautionary story about his ordeal of being accused of child pornography.  A drugstore employee called the police after developing some nude photos of the kids taken while on a camping trip.  The family, children included, were subject to lengthy questioning, as were their friends and teachers.  The police and family services treated them as though they were guilty from the start, and they were not even allowed to see the photos that were being used against them as evidence (the children took a bunch of photos, so Jenkins wasn’t even aware of all the pictures that had been taken).

As someone who loves to take pictures of my son, this is definitely a scary story.  Does this sort of thing enter your mind when you are photographing your children?
