This is, by far, our favorite Bizarre File story of the day!

‘The kids say we look like Lego people!’ The Zaring family, from near St. Louis in Missouri, shared the hilarious results of a professional shoot after the embarrassed photographer admitted she was never taught how to retouch images. Pam and Dave Zaring had their photos taken by a photographer in May of 2017 and they paid the woman $250. Money well spent? Well, perhaps in the long run because of how HILARIOUS the results were!

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...

The Zarings received the finished product last week and the photographer told Pam that she was never taught how to retouch images. Duh!

Instead of shadows on their faces from the bright, sunny day, the family’s faces have been left completely devoid of features. And now, Facebook users have shared the hilarious images nearly 400,000 times!

On the plus side, Pam finds the entire ordeal hilarious. She has asked the photographer for the original photos but did not ask for a refund.

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.
