Say Cheesy! 25 School Photos So Awkward You'll Want to Keep Your Kids Home on Picture Day

Awkward school photos

Which is why maybe it’s best to keep them home on that day.

Otherwise, beware one of these pictures that will somehow find a way to come back and haunt them on a Facebook page near you (and everyone else, too):
