Upping the Ante on Picture Day

If you’ve been around Stimeyland for very long, you have seen some excellent school picture portraiture float by here.

There is Sam in Spring 2008. And Quinn in Fall 2009. Frankly, even the photos I’ve purchased have been extremely goofy. But I think that this one that came home in Quinn’s backpack today may be the best.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.

Even me, who is pretty chill about paying for whatever the photographers send to me because I figure it captures who they are when the photo is taken, was all, NO.

Seriously. Quinn looked at the picture, looked at me, and said, “I’m sorry.”

I can’t stop laughing.

I called the so-called “professional” photography studio that took this and the woman who answered the phone looked up the photo, took a breath, and said, “I’m sorry.”

Then she followed up with, “They should have caught that.”

Ya think?

Retake day is December 1.

You guys, I have a great column that I wrote over at Autism Unexpected. It is about this woman named Jane Meyerding. She is a faceblind, autistic adult who wrote this awesome mystery featuring an autistic, faceblind character. The book is amazing for a lot of reasons, and Jane is a really cool woman. Check out my column and think about buying her book.
