Do you get professional pictures taken every year of your kids?

When I was younger, my parents only got pictures once a year and they were school pictures. My DD will be two tomorrow and we get professional pics taken twice a year. Once for her birthday and then again for Christmas (but we get the whole family in there).

  • No. I have a nice Cannon Rebel Slr camera. I can photo edit myself and prefer to do my own pics. If we want a family pic...I will go to a friend of mine who is professional photographer.  I can take my son outside to take pics, inside,etc.  I like the freedom of doing my own.

  • We try to every year. Either we get the whole family at Christmas or Easter plus pictures of just the kids around their birthdays. Their birthdays are all 2 weeks apart so we do it all at once.

  • are main goal is to get them done for birthdays, but when our first child was born we got the done 3 times the first year and then once a year after that. Our second child is 5 months old and we have yet to get pictures taken but we will soon. When we get pictures done we always get a family protrait taken no matter what the occasion is for the picture taking.

  • I have a 10 year old and when she was a baby, I got professional pics of her at least twice a year. Now I have 3 other kids and none of them have professional pictures. I guess you can say some are professional because they were taken by my father-in-law who is a professional photographer. And I have wedding pictures of the kids, does that count? I just think professional pictures are too expensive nowadays and take pictures myself instead.

  • I got a set done when he was 1.5years. I do Santa every year, and try to do the Easter Bunny, but missed last year. He got his first pre-school pics last year, and they were SOOOOO cute! All the other pics are by me, I took photography all throughout HS and 1 semester in College(real film and everything! LOL). I think I do a pretty god job and with all the new stuff you can do, like make books through Kodak, I find no need for professional pics.

  • If I didn't do my own then I would.
    When I had my first son I took him to the studio once a month his entire first year. I have a zillion photos of him.
