Do you get Christmas pics done every year for your child?

This is my daughter's 2nd Christmas and we are going Sunday to Babies R Us.

  • We almost got nailed at sears for 280 bucks for some auto focused shots of our newborn. I had a coupon for 35 photos for 8.99 but you could only choose one pose so that what we did. 280bucks just for pictures is a little steep. They know new parents are suckers and nail you for it. They turned one of her pics to B&W and wanted us to pay 25 dollars for the "effects" and then 9.99 for the actually photo. THAT TAKES ONE CLICK ON They make picture taking so easy now a day and from now on out thats what we are doing. Especially for holidays when you have xmas trees and easter eggs you can use as props.

  • Well, this will be my son's first Christmas, but we actually got them done today, and I plan on getting them every year, along with others throughout the year, lol.

  • We never has! Why waist the money? Those pictures are really expensive, and all they do is sit in a box in a closet somewhere...

  • I don't think it's worth spending the money to have pictures done in a studio unless you are doing something creative and special that requires a professional's touch. Otherwise, I think it's a good idea to take a family pic outside the house, infront of the tree, or with a nice clean wall for a back drop.... Most cameras have timers now or you could have a friend take it for you. Then just go to CVS or Walmart and use the machine to print out what you want and send it... or upload it to a site online that sends out special holiday cards...

  • I don't photograph well;o) Target does a better job; we tried our own one year because the children were not in a cooperative stage and I didn't like them. We just do family photos though.

  • We do Christmas pictures as a family. He is 2 and a half, so this will be the third year. His birthday is in June and we do those also. The first year we did every 3 months, now just twice a year.

  • Nope. But we do a family portrait every or every other year for Christmas cards. And we don't pay any more than any other time of the year - I just like to send out a recent photo if I'm going to send one out.
