This Grinch themed Christmas photoshoot will make you cringe, and LOL

accreditation

Finally, a photographer has come up with accurate family photos and I know many parents will relate.

Once a year we try to gather everyone together for a family photoshoot, to document the passing years and capture precious memories, and while we often end up with a few pretty pics, the behind-the-scenes out-takes usually paint a very different picture!

The genius behind Gardner Photography uses these moments to great effect, thanks to one very grumpy prop: the Grinch! 

See the hilarious results here:

This is how I feel about Christmas sometimes too

Ok, this is hilarious but also a bit mean, right?

I'd also be trying to escape!

An interesting side note: 

If you're a professional photographer who's considering giving this a shot, know that Dr. Seuss Enterprises might take offence. 

The business is well within its rights to protect its intellectual property, because the Grinch is a character created by Dr. Seuss and owned by Seuss Enterprises. 

Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are still public property though.
