School picture day is a major event for middle schoolers across the country, making one Missouri boy’s green screen photo shoot gone wrong all the more hysterical.

Last week, Laurel Boone Hutsell took to Facebook to share the hilarious shots of her son, Carter, who wore a neon green polo for his first day of seventh grade – which was also picture day – and divulged how the self-proclaimed #momfail came to be.

According to a Love What Matters blog post, the 42-year-old mom from the St. Louis area and her oldest child decided that the bright top would “look great against the gray or taupe background” for the photos commemorating the “fresh start” and “clean slate” of a new school year.

When Carter came home that day, the first words out of his lips were ones of alarm. “Mom, I shouldn’t have worn the green shirt for pictures. It will blend in with the green screen they used,” he exclaimed, according to Hutsell.

Hutsell tells FOX 11 she's become 'pretty good friends' with the photography studio and they fixed the photos so they have some good ones as well and won't need to do a retake.
