A Ton Of Baby Photos That Prove Reality Is Different Than Pinterest

Reality versus Pinterest — it’s a battle that continues to be waged on a daily basis. Sure you can attempt to bake that really cool looking Oscar The Grouch birthday cake but it will probably end up looking like a huge green mess of non-artistic junk.

One of the most popular trends on social media involves parents who try to replica baby photos they find on popular social networks. The results? For the most part the final product is hilarious.

Here are 24 photos that prove not everyone is a baby photographer.

1. Nailed It!

Not sure why but we actually like this babies reaction more than the original. A nice candid photo with the funniest result imaginable.

2. Joy To The…

Okay so maybe not a ton of joy but this is still better than the children fighting with each

3. A Bowl Full Of Crying.

I would probably cry too if I was put inside of a giant bowl of hard candies or gumballs.

4. I Hate Fruit!

Watermelons are for eating so I would be crying too if I was placed inside of one and didn’t know why. Poor little baby.

5. No More Pictures Please.

Help I’m drowning! Keep in mind that it takes hours to stage professional baby shoots and the results are not always pretty even if you have a ton of experience. Patience is the key here.

6. No Merry Christmas Right Now Please.

Please do not accidentally electrocute your children with this staged Pinterest photo shoot. Sure the results could be adorable or they could be horribly sad. 

7. Priceless.

Dear mommy, please don’t ship me to a foreign country. Love, the baby.

8. A String Full Of Baby Tears.

Maybe they are sad because they wanted some clothes or maybe the lights are just freaking them the heck out.

9. Nice Try Mom.

This second baby seems to be having way more fun. A little daredevil is born. 

10. I’m Getting Angry. You Don’t Want To See Me When I’m Angry

Wow, this little baby means business. Note to self, don’t piss off the baby in the basket.

11. Like Mother Like Daughter? Nope.

Some photos might not turn out perfectly but that’s okay — this will definitely be a cherished photo if not for its sentiment than for its humor.

12. These Balloons Are Here To Kill Me!

This kid now probably suppers from Globophobia, the actual documented fear of balloons. 

13. Oh Gawd!!! Please Call For Help.

I trapped this wild baby and now I have no idea what I should do with it! Poor little guy is like a Dolphin stuck in a tuna net.

14. Winning!

The cute factor is high in this photo recreation but the execution is leaving something to be desired, to say the least.

15. Nice Try Mom.

Don’t put your baby in a pumpkin unless you are ready for this type of reaction. The opportunity for a great photo is definitely there but the reality is usually much different. 

16. Pinterest Versus Reality.

These are both adorable photos for very different reasons. The baby on the right definitely wins for the humor category.

17. Very Graceful Kid.

I mean let’s be honest this baby wasn’t exactly posed or prepared for this photo session. At the same time, it’s a funny memory that will now exist on the internet until the end of time.

18. And Another Bear Rug Attempt…

Apparently capturing a bear rug photo with a baby is a lot harder than it looks. This kids reaction though is pretty darn funny. 

19. Totally The Same Thing.

From the outfit to the pose this was a total fail. This kid definitely doesn’t look amused, we would guess they were more confused than anything.

20. WTF.

Baby angry face is here to ruin the photoshoot! Wow. Just wow.

21. OMG Don’t Drop Me!!!

This is another prime example of why you shouldn’t try to pose your baby in crazy positions when attempting to recreate adorable baby photos you have found online.

That last one is less of a recreation and more of a warning for parents with newborn children at home. Oops!
