Professional family photoshoots are painful enough without the added hindrance of hiring a photographer completely out of their depth.
Spare a thought for this US family that have been completely stitched up after paying a photographer several hundred dollars to take their photo, and receiving a nightmarish series off 'touched up' images.
Pam Zaring shared her story in a public Facebook post.
”Ok. This is NOT a joke," Zaring said.
"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"
After waiting several months for her photos, Zaring and her family received these...
At least the family could see the lighter side of the whole fiasco.
Don't know how much work the photographer will be be getting in the future though...
