Do you buy the school pictures?

My daughter's in kindergarten, and her school pictures were monday and today already, and they're SO expensive! they won't let you just get an 8X10 and a sheet of wallets either, you have to get a package if you want pictures for home. Do you buy them?

  • I don't buy his pictures because he's playing soccer and I get the soccer pictures--cheaper and more pictures! If he wasn't playing soccer I probably would just take him to walmart or somewhere and get them done. The kids have school pictures this week and the cheapest package is $30 for 6 pictures. Then they will do them again in the Spring.

  • I always do. I always buy the cheapest package though. You'll want it for grandparents and her baby book.

  • I buy the package that looks like the better deal. I don't like the mini wallets. I actually just want the same as you mention- an 8x10 and some wallets.

  • Go to Sears. You can get a decent sized package (1 pose) for about $10.

  • Nope. They are awful. I take my own photos of my kids.

  • I would just take your own picture! I bet you could take a better one anyway, most of the time the school pictures look awful!! :)
