Well, this is one way to snap back at the pesky paps.

Jennifer Garner was spotted with her kids at a farmers market in Pacific Palisades, Calif., where the mother of three decided to confront a troublesome shutterbug by taking a pic of the paparazzo with her camera phone.

The 41-year-old actress looked cute and casual in a pair of jeans and a black sweater with her hair pulled up into a loose ponytail. She faced the pap, who was taking a video of Garner, head on, holding up her camera to give the man a piece of her mind.

Garner, along with Halle Berry, recently testified before the California State Assembly Committee on Public Safety in support of a proposed antipaparazzi bill intended to protect celebrities' children from being harassed by photographs by making it a crime for shutterbugs to stalk, harass or engage in otherwise dangerous conduct in order to obtain a photo.

"I chose a public life," Ben Affleck's missus told lawmakers in Sacramento. "My three children are private citizens. I love my kids. They're beautiful and sweet and innocent, and I don't want a gang of shouting, arguing, lawbreaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are all day, every day, to continue traumatizing my kids."

Senate Bill 606, written by Sen. Kevin DeLeon of Los Angeles, prohibits photographers from "following the child's activities or lying in wait," and also allows an aggrieved party to pursue a civil suit against a photographer for inflicting distress on a child.

The proposed legislation is expected to be heard by the Assembly Judiciary Committee.
