How often do you have your child's pictures taken at a studio?

For the first year I had them done every 3 months, she is now 17 months and I haven't had them done since 12 months. I guess I will get 18 month pics..

  • The first year I did them probably 4 times, then the second year I did them maybe 2 times. Then after that it's once a year for school and always one for Christmas cards :-)

  • With my first I took him every month and spent roughly $300. Insane, yes. With my second I think he went twice. With my third I took them all 1 time. I know have a professional camera so I do all my own photos.

  • we did it twice a year, spring and fall/xmas. now he's in school, so we'll probably drop back to once a year..maybe.

  • The ONLY pro pics I have are her newborn pic from the hospital, and we got some done for her 1 yr. She is 28 mo old now. I wish we could do more but it's not feasible right now with $$, besides we literally have THOUSANDS taken by several people, including us. I have a friend who takes pics as a hobby, and although none are posed, they are BEAUTIFUL candid pics. I am an artist so if I want to give any that "artistic feel" I can play with them on my computer and make them look professional.
