One Missouri mom was flabbergasted after receiving pictures from a photographer who took "professional" photos of her family. But after Pam Zaring and her husband Dave got over the initial shock, they couldn't stop laughing.
“This is too funny to keep to ourselves,” Pam said to Inside Edition. “When I came over and looked at them, I can tell you both of our mouths were just compete 'O,' just wide open.”
She said she and her husband had paid more than $200 for the family photo shoot on a "beautiful, clear, sunny day." But clearly, the images she received from the photographer told a different story — a Photoshopped story, that is!
Pam took to Facebook to share six hilarious photos, writing in the caption: "Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us....She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos. Feel free to share 😂😂😂 I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up.....again, this is NOT a joke - final product."
Wow! We're truly confused as to how a photographer could return such images to customers. We're even more perplexed by looking at each one of the people's faces in the lovely family — they don't even look like real people anymore. If anything, they look more like strange cartoon characters from a TV show we're glad we never watched.
That said, we're glad that Pam and Dave have such a good sense of humor about this mistake. Pam even called it the "most expensive comedy” she's ever paid for — though we hope she gets a refund! It just goes to show that sometimes a well-earned laugh can be found in the unlikeliest of places — and that maybe this family would've had better luck if they simply took their a selfie at home. Ah well, there's always next year!
