    Default me vs. mine

    Teacher,
    Are these two sentences both correct?
    This is a photo of me as a baby.
    This is a photo of mine as a baby.

    Many thanks

    I also say me.

    Mine were right if the sentence would be:
    This is a photo of a baby of mine.
    (This means it's one of your babies.)

    P.S: I'm not sure if the sentence is fully okay, but the mine should be right in this case.

    Cheers!

    Your first sentence is good English; the second is not.
