24 School Picture Day Photos That Didn't Turn Out the Way the Kids' Parents Hoped
School picture day always brings with it a unique set of challenges for parents. Once you've gotten your kids out the door in their photo-ready outfits, the control is out of your hands, and you can only hope that by the time they take their snaps, their shirt will still be clean, their hair won't be a mess, and that they smile that beautiful smile you get to see at home on the daily.
However, having zero influence over how your child ultimately looks in their photo could end up in less-than-ideal results, as it did for Silas, whose mom shared his hilarious 2019 picture day photo and inspired tons of other parents to share their own children's photo blunders from years past.
Keep reading to see some of the most hilarious school picture day photos that parents have shared in which their kids are either not smiling, think they're smiling but really they're grimacing, or just look completely terrified of the camera (or the worst outcome of all: they sent their kid to school in green and got floating-head photos).
