Okay. So, you know how photo companies come into schools and take photos of all the kids and then they select the best one to send home in hopes that you will buy it?
For instance, this awesomely adorable photo of my very handsome Quinn that was taken a few weeks ago:
But they don’t want you to just buy the one photo. They want you to be so in love with the cuteness of what they send home that you will also buy the second best photo, often taken in front of a different—and far more cheesy—background.
So they will find the second best photo and send that one home too. Such as this second best photo of Quinn:
Are you okay? Have you stopped laughing? Because I laughed for about 45 minutes. I love that there just was not a second best image.
But the photo companies know that most parents won’t necessarily order both poses, so they include one fancy sheet with both poses on it so that parents can just buy that and have both photos.
I will sometimes buy this sheet just to get the second pose. Often the juxtaposition of the two photos is really cute.
