Shhh, I’m just about to scare the crap out of this nice little girl.

ewww… where’s his other hand!?
I SO wish I knew what this little girl’s name was…..because she looks EXACTLY like a girl I know now (who is in her 20’s). If I could post a photo of her today, you’d see what I mean
Ok….it’s like a bad car accident…forget the girl, I think Santa is watching ME! Stop staring, stop staring…
They are both thinking “FEAST!!!!FEEEEASSSSST!!!!!!!!!”
i too have a picture with this background…my friends always comment on how freaky the background is
LM*AO We just had our 1 year old sons picture taken at WalMart with this background!! I honestly figured it saved me the time of waiting in line to see Santa…guess now I just have to live with pedi Santa trying to get my kid…
hahaha this one makes me laugh every time I see it.
the first thing i thought of when i saw this is “not the momma!!”
please tell me someone understands that… or i’m just really old.
I’m the baby, gotta love me!
I KNOW THIS GIRL!!!!! SERIUOSLY!!!!
ROFL – Love the comment!!!
Haha! I used to work at a Wal-Mart Portrait Studio and one day I was bored and decided to reorganize the book that we used to display the backdrops. I renamed the backdrop pictured above from “Santa is Here!” to “Santa’s Secret”. It made my day every time a parent requested “Santa’s Secret”
We picked this backdrop on purpose because of super creepy santa, cracks me up every time I look at it.
In a related story an amber alert was resolved peacefully when voyeurclaus was arrested outside of the victims home when his sleigh wouldn’t start.
And as soon as she turns around, there GOES Santa Claus! Poor kid. Hope she got a make-over for Christmas.
It looks like the sacra is going to be th other way around. Watch out Santa!
Some stores will do anything to avoid having to pay an extra employee!
My cousin did this to her kid, too. He’s terrified of Santa, but I guess she felt compelled to have some sort of Santa picture. Every time I look at the picture I want to scream, “Don’t turn around, Collin!”
This one is never awkward. It’s just too common. If it was a person and not a painted backdrop, it would be a different story.
my daughter took this same pick when she was a few weeks old. it was her first professional picture. i didnt even notice santa until my best friend complained about how creepy he was. strange enough after that i ran into several people who hated the background because everyone’s kid took this pick at walmart and kmart and it had the same creepy pedi santa in the window
Your daughter’s pretty talented to be able to take a picture when only a few weeks old! (Sorry…couldn’t resist.)
HOW COULD YOU NOT NOTICE SANTA??!!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?
totally had this done as a kid!
that box and bow have seen better days………
L . M . A . O !
i just think its funny that santa and the lil girl are in focus but the tree isnt….
“Muhahahaha it’s Christmas!”
Hey this is my little girl be nice!
She’s beautiful. I hope she’s not scared of Santa after this.
Your daughter is beautiful, but the santa is seriously creepy. What were you thinking when you picked that backdrop?
Make sure your daughter gets some sleep this year.
Here comes Stalker Claus, Here comes Stalker Claus, Right down Stalker Claus Lane…..Alarms are ringing, children grinning, All is scary and fright, Lock your windows and say your prayers, ‘Cause Stalker Claus is coming tonight!
Bahahaha! Creepy Santa…. creepin’ up on ya! Look out!
Next week on Dateline’s To Catch a Predator: Santa!
nice one. He’s a peeping tom. AHHAHH
I’m pretty sure that little girl is sneering. Little girls aren’t supposed to sneer!
She’s definitely gonna take Santa OUT.
You guys are so mean.
Exactly why I love this site. =>
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?!
“Shorthly before midnight Regan felt a strange sensation…like she was being watched. Suddenly Ellen Burstyn burst into the room with a steaming bowl of pea soup and announced: No thanks, we already own a penguin.”
LM*AO! I literally hit the floor with laughter and had tears running down my eyes!
SO Wrong…..but so freaking hilarious!
Wow, what’s with the falling shrapnel? is this London during the raids? What’s with her Spock ear? I think Santa is saying :”shhh, don’t tell her I’m here so I can sneak away quietly…”
This picture is creepy on so many levels. Santa, that poor little girl…YIKES!
loooove Santa’s squared glasses…so classy!
So is she just laying on some carpeted table there or is Santa just much shorter in person…?
I think we have seen a photo like this before on AFP. But still very creepy!
Remember, Santa’ watching you.
No, he REALLY IS watching you…!
Penultimate frame of “The X-mas Chainsaw Massacre.”
There’s a horror movie look in her eyes. Combined with all the scratches on her face, and the hole in her ear, I’d say it’s more creepy than awkward, eek!
A Christmas stalking?
Stalking! I get it!! 🙂 lol
She is a young Vampire planning her strike on the unsuspecting, blood-engorged Santa
Ha ha ha!
The fact that this was a standard backdrop doesn’t make this any less awkward to me. It makes the viewer feel somehow complicit in whatever is going to happen next.
I don’t know if I would pick this photo retoucher again. He seems to have a strange interest in the emphasizing and placing loving delineation on the inner whorls of one’s ear.
It’s just a very scratched photo that has been scanned in.
I hadn’t noticed that until you mentioned it. Perhaps she’s a ferengi from Star Trek?
Actually, what you are seeing is her hair below her ear.
Nope, it’s just scratched. It’s from a Wal-Mart Portrait Studio, they got these backgrounds in Christmas 2004. And they also do not retouch photos, believe me. (I used to work there)
LOL I love how AFP is trying to warn the little girl… I hope she gets the message before it’s too late!
…he knows when your awake!!!
and she’s definitly been awake a little too long
LMAO! my thoughts exactly!
BEST COMMENT EVER
I thought it was going to be more like, Shhh, I’m just about to scare the crap out of Santa Claus.
ha! my thoughts exactly.
Glad I wasn’t the only one thinking the exact same thing. eek!
ding ding ding! We have a winner!
I thought the same thing then felt bad for thinking about it….It was the first thing that popped in my head before I even read the caption….lol…..glad to know I am not alone 🙂
Yeah that was the first thing that I thought about!
wth!!! I can’t stop laughing…
Nothing awkward about that. It was the standard backdrop for either Sears or JCPenney for a few years in a row.
Just because it’s “standard” doesn’t make it non-awkward.
Standard? NO, just plain creepy and funny!
This is a Walmart backdrop… They tried to use it when I had my daughter’s picture taken, it weirded me out then too…
