Birth announcements are exciting to send out. After a new baby is born, parents will have photo shoots with the baby so they can share the news with their friends and family. Not to mention they’ll blow up your news feed with baby pictures.

However, some parents decided to skip having a professional photographer take these photos and do it themselves. Let’s just say you can definitely tell the difference.

Not Happy

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:We-Wouldn’t-Be-Happy-Wrapped-Like-This-Either.jpg

This baby clearly is not happy to be swaddled up in this blanket. There will be no smiles today.

Caught in a Web

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Help-I’m-Trapped.jpg

This is a good concept for a photo. Unfortunately, the execution just wasn’t there.

Bad Participants

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Bad-Aim-Ruined-This-Baby’s-Photo-Shoot.jpg

Babies squirm and move around a lot. So, getting a good photo with them is no easy task.

Pouting

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:In-All-Fairness-She’s-Much-Younger-Than-The-Original-Girl.jpg

We would pout too if our hair looked like this.

Happy Halloween

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Help-I’m-Trapped-In-A-Pumpkin.jpg

We can’t imagine sitting inside of a pumpkin would be very comfortable. This baby clearly wants to get out.

Jack Frost

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:This-Baby-Is-Still-Adorable-In-Their-Own-Way.jpg

This would have made a great Christmas card if only the baby would keep his hat on and smile a little.

Christmas Lights

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:I-Think-This-Small-Child-Became-Trapped-In-The-Lights.jpg

While we don’t know why babies are scared of certain things, we do know that this baby is terrified of Christmas lights.

The Watermelon

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Why-Do-Parents-Keep-Trying-To-Put-Their-Babies-Inside-Of-Fruits-And-Veggies.jpg

Why is it trendy to put your baby in a fruit or vegetable? It definitely cannot be very comfortable.

The Tantrum

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:This-One-Was-Doomed-From-The-Very-Start-And-Probably-A-Bit-Dangerous-With-Glass-Bulbs.jpg

There is no better time for a baby to throw a temper tantrum than in the middle of a photo shoot.

The Pregnancy

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Like-Mother-Like-Daughter-Sort-Of.jpg

You know what they say, like mother like daughter. Unfortunately, this little girl likes to add some humor to their photo.

Gumballs

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:That’s-An-Unfortunate-Choking-Hazard.jpg

We don’t understand why someone would want to put their baby in a jar full of gumballs. While it’s colorful, it’s definitely a choking hazard.

Stocking

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Do-You-Even-Know-How-To-Use-Socks-Mom.jpg

These parents must have really big feet to be able to put their socks over their baby.

Too Early to Read

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Books-And-Babies-Don’t-A-Good-Photo-Make.jpg

These parents clearly have high expectations for their child.

Put Me Down

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:The-Hand-Off.jpg

This looks more like a trust exercise than a friendly photo shoot.

No Joy Here

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:How-About-This-For-Joyful-Noise.jpg

This is proof that there are two different types of children out there.

No Effort

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Babies-Are-Always-Put-In-Soft-Situations.jpg

It’s hard being a model. This baby is tired of all the photo shoots. He just wants to take a nap. Is that too much to ask?

Delivered

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:So-Storks-Must-Deliver-In-Boxes-Now.jpg

So that’s how babies come into this world. The stork must be pretty busy.

Tonka Truck

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:A-Wide-Load.jpg

Babies are all different shapes and sizes. This one is just a little too big for this truck.

Santa’s Little Helper

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:The-Stocking-Stuffer.jpg

Someone is clearly channeling the Grinch this Christmas.

That’s a Lot of Boys

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:The-First-Girl-And-Her-Band-Of-Brothers.jpg

We feel sorry for the boy who wants to date this girl later in life.

Snow Angels

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Making-Snow-Angels.jpg

They just want to be back in the house where it’s warm.

The Coffee Addict

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:A-Morning-Cup-Of-Joy.jpg

New parents definitely know the need for caffeine after having a baby.

Pretty Princess

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:The-Almost-Identical-Photo-Recreation.jpg

Now that’s one photo that will be shown to all future boyfriends to embarrass this little girl.

Super Close

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Reasons-To-Always-Keep-Your-Mouth-Closed.jpg

Being a parent means getting a lot of different bodily fluids all over you.

Serious Face

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:This-Baby-Looks-Ready-For-A-Fight.jpg

We predict this baby is going to grow up to work on Wall Street.

Too Tired

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:“I-Can’t-Be-Bothered”1.jpg

Please, just let me go to sleep already.

Tangled

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Who-Can-Blame-Him-He’s-Wrapped-In-Electrical-Wiring.jpg

This has to be considered as some kind of abuse, right?

Kisses

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Too-Many-Kisses.jpg

Someone got a little too carried away with the red lipstick.

Class Clowns

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:This-Is-A-Balancing-Act-Most-Kids-Can’t-Pull-Off.jpg

These parents will never get a good photo of their children. It’s time that they accept this now.

Not About It

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Looks-Like-A-Simple-Shot.jpg

This pose is super simple. However, this baby is doing everything but cooperating.

USA

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:God-Bless-America.jpg

This would have been a great photo if the little nugget would just stop crying.

Whoops

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Makes-You-Want-To-Vomit.jpg

The first thing this dad is going to do after this photo shoot is take a shower. Or so we hope.

One is Enough

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Unhappy-Big-Brother.jpg

You can tell just how happy this little boy is that he is getting a sibling.

All About Placement

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Carrot-Gone-Awry.jpg

Who thought it was a good idea to put the carrot over the baby’s face?

Born a Sailor

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Disturbed-Sailor.jpg

We’re thinking the sailing life is not for this little baby. He may just want to stay on land.

Hershey Kisses

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Love-Kisses.jpg

We don’t understand how anyone could be so unhappy when they are around so much chocolate.

I Can’t Read

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Book-Lover.jpg

This baby is clearly frustrated with the fact that she can’t read yet.

Bored

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Feeling-Grumpy-Not-Festive.jpg

This is why you have to distract babies with a stuffed animal or silly noises.

Always Dirty

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Almost-All-Clean-After-A-Bath.jpg

As a parent, it may feel like your baby is never clean. Even after a shower, the chance of them spitting up is not slim.

Tutus for All

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Mommy’s-Ballerina.jpg

She was born to be a dancer. Maybe not a model, but definitely a dancer.

Cheerios

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Breakfast-Baby.jpg

What’s on the menu today? Oh, baby and Cheerios? Sounds lovely.

Santa Baby

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Santa-Baby.jpg

Next time let’s get a hat that actually fits the baby’s head.

Stilettos

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Mommy’s-Heels.jpg

She’s a true born diva. Her father better watch out during those teenage years.

Christmas Present

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Stocking-Stuffer.jpg

Who knew that babies would make the perfect stocking stuffers?

Take It Off

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Fashion-Critic.jpg

This baby is clearly unhappy to be in this tutu. Maybe she’ll go into fashion design later on?

Easter Baby

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Don’t-Put-All-Your-Eggs-In-One-Basket.jpg

We’re thinking this baby prefers Christmas over Easter. Less plastic.

No Effort

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Speaking-Of-The-Easter-Bunny.jpg

I’m just going to lay here while you take as many pictures as possible.

Basket Baby

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Get-Me-Out-Of-This-Ridiculous-Basket.jpg

Not another basket! Please stop putting me in ridiculous baskets and taking photos.

No Balloons Here

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Globophobia-Is-Real.jpg

We’re thinking this baby has an irrational phobia of balloons. This is the worst possible place for him if that’s true.

Swinging Around

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_1.jpg

This is an adorable idea for a homemade swing. Unfortunately, the second baby doesn’t look too impressed by it.

Face Down

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_2.jpg

Not all babies have that natural gift of posing well.

Messy

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_3.jpg

It’s no secret that babies are messy. At least this messy baby is a happy baby.

Crocheting

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_4.jpg

Someone clearly doesn’t approve of their mother’s crocheting project.

Twinsies

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_6.jpg

Well, these babies are definitely no Mary-Kate and Ashley, that’s for sure.

Too Tired for This

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_7.jpg

This baby has had enough. She’s ready for her nap time.

The Duck Face

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_8.jpg

You all remember that trend where people kept making duck faces in photos, right? We’re thinking this baby was born in the wrong era.

Daddy’s Girls

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_13.jpg

Oh what a wonderful thing to be a father. Unfortunately, having four kids isn’t as romantic as it seems.

Scary Santa

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Screenshot_14.jpg

This baby is not pleased to be sitting on Santa’s lap this Christmas.

Icing Fight

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Ummm.-I-Think-I-Got-Something-In-My-Eyes.jpg

Babies usually love getting into things and making a mess. This baby is the exception, though.

Take Me Home

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Baby Photos:Get-This-Flower-Off-My-Head-Right-Now.jpg

Take me home and get this ridiculous flower off of my head, right now!
