Mom Furious After School Photoshops Student's Smile

 

This headline makes ME furious! School pictures are supposed to be keepsakes from your childs youth. I LOVE looking at pictures of my son from when he had an "old man" hairline....or the crib bald spot..it's adorable! They are memories!

Thanks Chilli for sharing this story with a fellow mama!

Angela Pickett did a double take when she saw her son’s photos from school, thinking at  first they were taken before he lost his teeth. But then she realized her boy’s gappy grin had been replaced with photoshopped teeth. And even though the mom got the original toothless pics from the photographer, she shared the story in a now viral blog post.

“While our school photographer quickly acknowledged the mistake and provided new photos, I wrote the  blog because it would seem that some companies do this on a regular  basis – and some charge for it,” Pickett explains. “I think it sends a bad message to our kids.”

And it turns out this photoshopping practice isn’t uncommon for school pictures, some photographers have been known to correct messy hair, cuts, bruises, and stains on shirts in school  photos. And as she points out in the post, that’s really too bad because we want to remember our kids just the way they are, awkward phases and all.
