The photographer unleashed her hilariously altered pics on social media where they quickly went viral, and believe us, you’ve never seen newborn baby photos like this.

Haehl’s photos are a fun twist on the classic newborn photo shoot.

We have to admit we’ve always wondered what a little chunk might look like with chompers, which is why when Haehl’s photos recently went viral, we were doubled over with laughter.

Haehl recently spoke with CafeMom and admitted that she was hoping the photos would put a smile on people's faces.

“I just thought it was so funny,” she says, “and would be a great way to put a smile on people’s faces — literally.”

“I didn’t do a photo shoot specifically for this,” she says, but once inspiration struck she took photos that would lend themselves to some toothy alterations. The mom says some people think she used Photoshop to get the cheeky grins on the babies, but she actually used an application called FaceApp.

And some of them are devilishly funny.

Haehl admits that her images are a helpful reminder that it’s a good thing these babies look a bit goofy. “I think we all realize why babies aren’t born with a full set of teeth!” she says.

“I loved having a variety of images in the album … some that were obviously awkward but then some that looked so natural you almost wouldn’t notice what is off about the photo!” she explains.

That’s why she decided to share the album instead of keeping the laughs all to herself. And thank goodness she did!

The photographer says that neither she nor the parents of the babies “anticipated them going viral, but they have all been very understanding and I’ve kept communication lines open with them to keep them informed throughout this whole thing.”
