When it comes to photos of your kiddo, hilarious school picture day fails are kind of the best. Not only have plenty of these giggle-worthy pics gone viral recently, but if you happen to have one of your own—well, you’re in luck (at least when it comes to getting a good laugh a few decades from now when you look back at the ridiculousness of it).
Here are some of our favorite fails from school picture season this year.
Pro-Tip: Never Wear Green on Picture Day
While silly smiles, goofy grins and odd outfit choices are all staples of the not-so-perfect pic, some school photos go above and beyond. When mom Laura Pyle sent her daughter to school picture day in a green dress she didn’t think much of it. That is, until she got the photos back. As it turns out, the school’s photographer used a green screen. And yes, Pyle’s daughter Addison’s sparkly dress went from green to completely matching all the different backgrounds. Pyle added, in her now-viral Facebook post, “THERE ARE 87 STYLES. I NEED THEM ALL.” Hmm. Maybe this one is actually a win!
A similar “oops” happened to Laurel Boone Hutsell’s son earlier in the school year. Like Pyle’s daughter, Hutsell’s son also wore a green top to school on picture day. And again, like Addison, Hutsell’s son now has plenty of pics wearing a background-matching outfit.
Oh, but these aren’t the only kiddos having green screen school pic shirt issues. When this boy wore a green Under Armour shirt for his school photo, he looked like…well, a grain-filled farm field!

When your sweet boy wears his favorite green underarmour shirt to school for picture day! 😂 Green screen Fail! . . . #pictureday #picturedayfail #schoolpictures #schoolpicturefail #underarmour #greenscreen #greenscreenfail #interstatestudio #floatinghead #wheatfield #fourthgrade #boywonder #pictureretake #fail #handsomeboy #myboy
Okay, okay so not all school picture fails fall under the green screen category. The photographer told this cute kiddo to “smile big.”
And it’s not only big kids that have major photo fails. This adorable tot was less than happy about her not-so-perfect photo session.
This little guy is more than super-serious. Right?
Even though there are more than a few school picture day photo fails, it seems like the clear moral of the story is don’t send your kids to school in green!
