    Amara Humphry Oakes maybe, I was watching a show called the Amish mafia an one of the people on the show freaked out when someone tried to take a picture of an Amish lady

    I just got done watching Breaking Amish, and one of the girls (a Mennonite) was adopted; her adoptive parents sent pictures of her to her birth parents. One of them also complained that her parents didn't have pictures of her as a kid, so she didn't know what she looked like and mentioned that it was because of vanity. From what I know, though, it just depends on what their bishop says is okay and not. Some drink, some can't, etc.
