Homecoming pictures, graduation pictures, engagement pictures, and baby announcement pictures have become very popular in recent years. Customers pay nice sums of money to have pictures made to celebrate almost any occasion.
Some of those photos turn out to be spectacular, other pictures have people scratching their heads as to the implied meanings behind the images.
It is also during the time of school dances, first dates, and proms, that protective fathers show their true feelings. One such protective father, Benjamin Shock of Bangor, Wisconsin, thought he would take advantage of the moment when his daughter Ricarra was getting her homecoming photos taken with her date for the night.

In a cold word of warning, the dad told the young man: “Whatever you do to my daughter, I will do to you.”
So, when Schock saw the young man had posed for a photo while standing behind his daughter, arms around her and hands clasped on her belly, he kept his promise. He got behind the young boy and posed with the boy in the exact same way.

As Sharee Schock told Today.com:
“I had my daughter go up and she was going to do some poses with her boyfriend, and my husband made a silly side comment, whatever he does to her, he’s gonna do to him,” she said.
“And he did the pose with his arms around her waist. And then my husband went over there and wrapped his arms around her boyfriend!”
“My daughter walked away and said, ‘Oh my gosh, Mom don’t take a picture!’ So of course I did,” Schock added.
