Australian mom of two Angela Pickett was furious when her eight-year-old son's school photographer photoshopped his missing teeth back into his mouth.
“Surely we have lost the plot when we start photoshopping an eight-year-old’s gappy grin,” Pickett writes in a now-viral blog post.
“At first, I thought they’d given us last year’s photo — but then I looked closer. Nope. His mouth had been replaced with what looked like last year’s baby teeth."
Pickett says the school photographer apologized and gave her the original photos, but since some companies do this on a regular basis, she wanted to make parents aware.
"I think [it] sends a bad message to our kids," Pickett told Scary Mommy in an interview. “He’s not embarrassed by the gaps and wonky teeth, he’s excited because he lost tooth. I want my son to be able look back over all his school photos and see how he has changed.”
