What’s the one thing you treasure most from your childhood? Maybe it’s a stuffed toy, maybe it’s memories. But something that unites all these things is your baby photos. They are something precious and remind you of your favorite memories from childhood. As a parent, these photos are a way to immortalize your child’s earliest times. Whether a photoshoot with a photographer or just a snap on your phone, these will be treasured memories for life.
Or so you thought… Amy Haehl of Coffee Creek Studios decided to make some edits to the baby photos that she took. Yes, she added teeth to the adorable babies. The photos turned from cute and amazing to creepy and strange in an instant.
The edited pictures quickly went viral, and for good reason! Look at them! However, Amy had a good reason for creating the monstrous photos. “I just thought it was so funny,” she said, “and would be a great way to put a smile on people’s faces — literally.”
“I didn’t do a photo shoot specifically for this,” she admitted. She just used FaceApp to edit baby photos that she’d already taken. “I think these photos were popular with people because it is so different from the normal way babies look and they’re quite hilarious.”
Amy enjoyed the variety of babies, however. “I loved having a variety of images in the album,” she said. “Some that were obviously awkward but then some that looked so natural you almost wouldn’t notice what is off about the photo!”
