How often do you have your LOs pictures taken?

I get them taken about once a month...that way I have enough for everybody to have some and only have to pay for the advertised packages and I'm not out a lot of money. we all know they grow so fast... :(

  • With my older kids it was every two months, but sadly with #'s 5, 6 & 7. I rarely do them professionaly. I do them myself (not bad if I say so :) ) but even then it is only once a year.

  • Where do you go to get the pictures done? I'm due in July and would like to get pictures done now with just DH and I and then like you about once/month after baby gets here.

  • I go different places. Wal-mart for some basic pics...they usually offer packages with an 8x10, two 5x7s, four 3.5x5s, and 16 wallets for about $7. Not bad at all. For others, I go to J.C. Penny and they let you pick however many pages you want for $3.99 each or a package for $8 with a coupon. Olan Mills is a bit more expensive, but not crazy...more like $20 for a package similar to what I mentioned with Wal-Mart.

  • Thanks! The place we have gone to in the past is no longer in business so I wasn't sure what good alternatives were/are.

  • i called the place at walmart and she said it would cost about 100 dollars for the pictures. it was ridiculous. id rather do em myself.

  • Yikes!! Wal-Mart's pictures can get expensive in a hurry if you buy more than their advertised package!

  • Every 3 months, or if there is a holiday close we will just wait for that. She is 21 months and I've had them done 8 times. We mostly go to Penny's and use the coupon.

  • I have only had my son's pics done professionally 2x in 3 yrs. Why? B/C I can take pictures and actually get him to smile and my big thing is I like more candid shots better than staged. I scrapbook so I take a lot of photos of him and show case about anything he does! If I want them professionally done then I go my friend(she is great and does this on the side).
