Hilariously Bad Family Photos Go Viral

This photo shoot just won the Internet… for how bad the Photoshop job was. Pam Dave Zaring says she got back her family photos from the professional photographer they hired… and nearly died laughing. She then posted the photos on Facebook, where they’ve been going absolutely viral.

Just take a look at the photos for yourself.

“Ok. This is NOT a joke,” Zaring writes. She says she paid the “professional” photographer $250 for the family photo shoot and received this photos in return.

“She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos,” Zaring writes. “I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!”

Within 8 hours of being shared online, the photos had already attracted over 150,000 likes and 200,000 shares.

We’ve reached out to the photographer for comment and will share an update if/when we hear back.
