School pictures?

So do you get them done? Do you take them yourself or go to a studio?

We've had our son's picture done professionally every year since he was 7 weeks old (he had at least 5 sessions his first year, LOL) and of course I plan to continue that because I want pictures of him as he grows up, plus he's so photogenic (doesn't cooperate too well with me, but he does great with a professional) that I would hate to miss the opportunity.

Both, actually. We take some outside at home and at various places with interesting backgrounds (we live in the country) and we have family photos with singles of Ash usually in the late fall.

I would do them even if I wouldn't be a professional photographer. They charge way to much trust me I know. With all this new technology anyone can take pictures and make them look great. I don't likely editing mine because I love the excitement and process of creating a picture.

I take my own. One of my hobbies is photography so I practice on my kids.

We take our own, but not super formal.

We definitely have to do professional if we want good pics. He'll cooperate pretty good with a photographer, but I'm lucky to get the back side of his head when I'm taking pictures, LOL. Or he's moving around too much it's one big blur. At least their cameras can compensate for that. :p

We have a mom in our co-op who is a great photographer. This semester we are even going to do a yearbook!

Mom takes them. She's real good at it... so is my SIL, or there's always a studio photographer (like Wal-Mart).

I don't know WHAT I am going to do this year!

In past years we have had karate pics done in place of school pics. This year none of the kids still train. DS got his purple belt a few months ago so I will probably still get his pic done.in our dojo belts are hard to earn and aren't based on how long you hve been there but how well you master skills.

I will probaby have pics done at some point. Maybe not till gymnastics pics in spring.
