Photographer's retouching fail goes viral

When most families pay for a professional photograph of their loved ones, they usually expect a decent photo that will be displayed in their home for years to come -- but for one family they went viral instead.

Pam and Dave Zaring met their photographer on a beautiful sunny day and everything went as planned -- or so they thought.

The photographer they paid around $200 to $250 claimed the shadows on the photos were very intense and that she hadn't been taught how to retouch photos.

The young woman did her best -- and the results are absolutely hilarious.
