A school photography company in the US has outraged parents by offering to ‘retouch’ children’s school photos by “removing blemishes” and “whitening teeth”.

Journalist and mum Sam Walker tweeted a now viral photo of the school photo packages she had the option to buy for her daughters, aged 12 and 8.

She could go for the “basic retouching” which “removes blemishes” or the “premium retouching” which also “whitens teeth and evens skin tone”.

Sam said she had registered a complaint, adding “what 8 yr old needs to be paranoid about an uneven skin tone”.

Back in 2015, Victoria’s Daylesford High School came under fire for choosing to Photoshop piercings out of school photos to adhere to school policy, although students also said they had blemishes and acne removed at the same time.
