ATLANTA, Ga. (FOX 13) - A little boy with a big personality is spreading joy across the internet with a school photo of him in mid-roar.
Little Andrew has always been a silly kid with a huge personality, his mother, Andriel Miles, said. But when she opened up Andrew's backpack to see her son's kindergarten photos, she was expecting something a little more "traditional."
Instead, she saw the photos of him in his red polo shirt and his mouth wide open mid-scream. "I'm so mad right now!" Miles posted. "I checked my sons book bag and find these!!!!"
She posted her initial frustration along with the photos on Facebook, where commenters showed their love for the photos and they went viral.
Miles said she reached out to the photographer to see why the photos came out like this, and later said the positive comments really warmed her heart. "They opened my eyes to see that everything doesn't need to be cookie cutter. Being yourself is even more amazing!" she said. "Knowing that his silly picture brought joy all over the world, how can I continue to be flustered?" she said.
The photos of the Atlanta kindergartener have been shared more than 40,000 times since they were posted.
Miles says she is purchasing the photos, but told WMAZ she is also ordering retakes. Andrew says he plans on making the same face in next year's photos.
