Photo Session

I’m such a fan of school photos. My kids are gorgeous and charismatic, but that so rarely comes through in school photos, which is ironic, considering those people are quote-unquote professional photographers.

This year I didn’t order any photos, I just ordered a CD with the final image and a copyright release. I was highly amused to see that Sam and Jack’s CDs each contained one image, but Quinn’s contained three. I can’t decide if it’s because they wanted to make me laugh harder than I’ve ever laughed in my life or because they thought his photos were unusable and they figured three unusable photos were better than one.

I disagree. I think they’re über-usable. I always put my kids’ school photos in a three-space frame, and I’m having a hard time deciding which of Quinn’s to use. I’m leaning toward the second one. You’ll see.

I’ve decided to present my children with awards for their photos.

Sam: Most normal looking.
Sam: “I’ve had the most practice at this”-est.
Jack: Toothiest.
Jack: Most obviously recently coiffed.
Quinn: Most “They told me to smile”-est.
Quinn: Most “Is this better?”-est.
Quinn: Best capture of a personality.
Quinn: Most stoned.
Photo Company: “Let’s give them the one with his eyes
half closed because he looks less crazy“-est.
