How often do you get your childrens pictures done at a portrait studio?

I take tons and tons of pictures at home but just the other day i took my son to sears and got his pictures done for his birthday and they took great pictures. Before that i only had his pictures done when he was 3 months and i just wish i had done more.

  • I have never seen a reason to go do these things. My Aunt just bought us a package from Olan Mills where she works, so we will have them done, and my mother took them a few years ago, but beyond that - never... I hate those professional pictures, they aren't every real looking...

  • I have only taken my daughter once when she was a month old, she's not 20 months =/. I have tons of pictures of her on my computer from my digital camera but I wish I would have taken her more often. Her sister will be here in 5 weeks and I plan on taking them together all time.

  • We got family pictures done when my DD was just a month old. Then again with her cousin when she was 3 months then again on her 1 year birthday. We had birthday and Christmas pictures done since her birthday is 5 days before Christmas. We are planning on getting them done again for her 2nd birthday! :]

  • I had all 3 of my kids pictures taken at sears every month for the first year. And I try to get them taken together in the summer and before Christmas.

  • All the time. I don't go to sears or Olan mills but my bff is a professional photographer so she takes pictures of my girls all the time.

  • I personally hate those "posed" pictures, so I've never taken my 2-year-old. Never will, either. My two best friends are avid photographers, and I usually have a camera with me too, so between the 3 of us, he's probably the most photographed child on earth as it is, heh. And I like spontaneous pictures much more than portrait ones any day!

  • I don't. With the age of digital cameras, online photo editing sites, I don't see a need. I take amazing professional looking pics of my family with a very nice camera. I love taking pics!
