  • My daughter's 1st year, we had professional pictures done every month. Now, ever since she turned one, we do them twice a year.....her birthday and Christmas. I barely have any pictures before age 5, so I wanted to make sure my daughter never feels the way I do.

  • We've only had them done twice - ever! I hate the look of prof. pictures. I would much prefer to just see shots of them being them than pretending to be angels...

  • Oh for sure I agree. I am getting my son's pictures don a few times a year. It will slow down here soon but the first year they change so much!

  • I can't get enoug, and I got a digital pic frame for my birthday. So, I went out and spent good money on a great amazing camera and now I do my own. I much prefer candid shots of my children and family rather than posed.

  • Maybe once a year. I wish we could afford it more.

  • Once a year for my daughter's birthday. Sometimes we'll get them done at Christmas too, but I usually take my own pictures the rest of the year.

  • My kids get pictures taken together at Christmas, Easter and 4th of July. That is when my mil buys them really cute matching outfits. They get individual ones done around their birthday.

  • I think it depends on what you can afford and what you're personal preference is. Me? I am glued to my digital camera. We have photos (and many of them frame-able) taken by me on a very regular basis. The studio portraits? My kids are 8 and 6. We've paid to have one studio session in the last 8 years. We had another of them taken together when our church was updating the pictorial directory. Now the only "pro" shots we take are the ones through school and sporting activities. That's me though. I know if I want to document a milestone or another year past, I just have to take the kids and the camera to the river or the butterfly garden or the beach or the park, etc and ask them to smile a few times. I take photos until I find one I like. Then I get them printed off at Shutterfly. ;)
