Do you order pictures on your childs picture day at school?

The photographer we get at our school, sucks! He always gets a glare on my sons glasses. The picture packages are ridiculously expensive and the quality of the picture are not so good. I order the cheapest package! $11.00 for a yearbook, 2 wallet size and 3, 3x5. I can take better pictures with my camera! How are your childs school pictures?

  • I'm a photographer and I hate school pictures. Their quality is terrible. And they are so expensive.

    But, I ordered the cheapest package for my daughter's pictures. I think we got 4 wallets and a 3x5 and it was $13. I wanted some because it was her first year ever (she's in preschool).

  • When we lived in Maine and my daughters were all in elementary school I ordered small packages, which were priced reasonably well, but the photos were just the standard school-looking type - nothing special.
    When we moved to Virginia the prices were much more expensive and the packages had less photos available in them. I got fed up and began taking them to the portrait studio in Walmart. I get the $7.99 special package deal that allows me to choose my own background and help pose my children, and I can buy some extra sheets if I want. There are a lot of nice pictures in the special package deal, too.
    Stop paying for school pictures!
