We have shared some gorgeous photo shoots before! Like this The Notebook-themed shoot for a couple celebrating their 57th anniversary; or this photo shoot featuring a 3-year-old in her late father’s police uniform; or this “rainbow baby” maternity shoot for a deserving mother. But– as much as we love celebrating those flawless photographs that capture love and beauty– we know that life doesn’t always look like that… which is why we love the photos in the list below!

In the pictures below, you’ll see life’s expectations versus the (sometimes not-so-pretty) reality… and they all feature adorable and hilarious babies!

Check out our top 24 baby photo shoot fails:

1. Not quite what we were going for.


Maybe it’s a “fail,” but it’s still cute!

2. Silent night…


We think they’re missing the point.

3. She ain’t havin’ it.


She just wants to sleep.
