(WWBT) - A woman shared photos of her family on her Facebook page after receiving them from a "professional" photographer.
The photos then went viral after the family shared them with friends and relatives.
Pam Zaring and her husband own a small business in Hillsboro, Missouri, and they met the photographer when she stopped by. Zaring said the photographer solicited herself, so the family decided to give her a chance.
Zaring told TODAY that something felt off.
"People have asked me what red flags were there. I'm protective of not saying anything bad about her, because we're not upset, but it was interesting," Zaring said. "I'm used to (photographers who are) more interactive, creative, getting real smiles, suggesting poses, constantly click-click-click-click-click."
Zaring also said the photographer told them to "go interact," but they did not receive much coaching other than that.
The shoot happened in May of 2017, but Zaring said she did not receive the photos until January. When she received them, she posted them on Facebook for a good laugh.
