  • We have two done of Monkey. About maybe three of Red. None of Lump. We decided it was cheaper to use our own camera or MIL's expensive one and set up the pictures our self and print them out on our HP printer.

  • once a month when they were babies then after they turned 1 , their birthdays and xmas, once they started school I just did the school pics in fall and spring with xmas pixs for the entire family. Sears and JC Penney always had coupons for 3.99 a sheet and free sitting fees.

  • I haven't since they started school. Now I just use the schools pics. I used to do them several times a year. I prefer to take snapshots because they show more of the personality then posed pictures. I like to blow up the snapshots and frame them.

  • All my kids I did it the same way. 4 times from newborn to 1yr old pics then every 6 months until they were 5, then annually.

  • My mother has bought them twice I think... And my aunt just bought us a package... But I have never seen a reason to have them done... They are super expensive and they just sit in a box.

    So in 4+ years, I think we are going on trip number 3...
