'Professional' photographer's terrifying retouching of family snaps goes viral

Sarah Carty

If you thought your family photos were embarrassing, feast your eyes on these snaps.

Pam and Dave Zaring, who hail from Missouri, told KCENTV they were contacted by a photographer who offered to take snaps of their family for $350.

The couple, who have been married for the past three years, decided to take her up on her offer to get some stills of their “blended” family in a park in St. Louis.

However, they could never be prepared for what happened a few months later, when the photographer sent them the results.

And now a seemingly fake Facebook account has even given President Donald Trump the same Photoshop treatment.

“Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot,” Pam wrote on Facebook.

“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.

“I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up.....again, this is NOT a joke - final product.”

Speaking to KCENTV Pam said her kids “kept saying they looked like Lego people” but the photos have brought the whole family a lot of joy.

Pam has also asked the photographer for the original photos from the shoot but doesn’t want a refund because “it’s been worth every dime”.
