Woman Paid Professional Photographer For Pics And Couldn't Stop Laughing When She Got Them.


So this is what Pam and Dave Zaring, along with their two boys, really look like in real life.

Paying someone to take professional photographs of you and your family is nothing out of the ordinary. Of course, professional photoshoots often involve some serious touch-ups to make everyone look their very best. But the Zaring family's photographer accidentally found a way to make the family photos unique and unusual when she took Photoshopping to the extreme.

Now some people find the thought of retouching photos, fixing the lighting, and enhancing the colors, to be a huge no-no! Why? Because people just assume that the photos aren't showing the real you. But when the Zarings opened up their package of photographs, they noticed that something was way off...like REALLY off!

They look like the picture-perfect family and the background is beautiful, even though it's a bit dark.

Pam and Dave wanted professional photographs done of their family, so they hired a photographer.

Now, the couple knew that the photos would get some retouching, but they didn't expect this at all.

What they expected had been a bunch of photos that looked realistic, but that's not what they got.

The Zarings looked through the photographs and found six photos that had left them mind boggled.

They heard of a bit of Photoshopping, but this was downright unrealistic looking and scary too.

Who could have imagined that the Zarings had paid $250 for photos that made their faces look like this?

There's a reason why these 6 photos came out looking like a Photoshop project gone wrong.

The photographer explained to the family that despite the beauty in the pics, the shadows were really bad.

The photographer also explained that her professor had never taught her how to retouch photos.

You'd think a professional photographer would have figured it out, but she didn't and this is what they got.

The photographer could have easily given the family a heads up before retouching the photos.

She might have even found another photographer who could have lent her a hand, but she didn't do it.

As you can tell from the photos, the faces look extremely cartoonish or drawn in.

Just look at mom's teeth! They look so sharp! And the faces are too flat and smooth to be realistic. It's almost as if she had drawn over their faces.

One thing we can say for sure is that the botched Photoshop didn't alter one important thing.

Even through the distortion, you can tell that the Zarings are happy and love each other very much. They loved the end results. After all, it was just six photos that were enhanced, and they laughed it off.

Pam and Dave are not the kind of people to lose their cool over any silly old thing.

On their Facebook, the couple confessed that they have not laughed this hard in years. "You can't make this stuff up... again," they added on Facebook, and they consider their money well spent.
