Would this Be A Decent Gift?

My parents have been hounding us for awhile now to get pictures (professionally done) of us and little man together. We have some, but they're hanging up on our walls right now. 

My stepfather's birthday is coming up at the end of this month. We can't really afford professional pictures until the middle of August since we have bills and because the photographer we normally use is completely booked for the rest of July. 

I want to set up a family shoot, including my parents, to get some shots of them and little man together since we don't have any with him and his grandparents. My parents aren't big on pictures simply because they don't like the idea of dressing up. I'm going to ask my mom and let her know since we're going to be paying for the photo session if they'd be able to show up so we can get some pictures of all of us together and I don't care how they're dressed. 

Do you think it'd be a good gift though? :( My parents are sooooooooooooo extremely picky that it's not even funny. Plus, they've been bothering us to get pictures for them and this would be a perfect idea. Is it truly good enough though? :(

My mom asked me one year to get a pictures professional done of my sister my brother and i she wanted her childrens photographs and she was soo happy when she got them :)) They werent professional since we didnt have the money but she was happy just to have a pictures of us that looked professional :) My mom is now a gma to my child and she asked this year for a picture of her so I've gotten pictures with her and the baby me and the baby just the baby and me the baby and the babies father, She loves them :) Photographs are always good gifts in my opinion :)) Also a thoughtful gift!!

I would but my parents are the type that if it can't be hung on the wall, they throw it out :(

I really hope they like it simply because they're just so picky about things >.< Dante is their first grandson (second grand baby though lol) so i hope that my dad likes it.

The rest of our family says it's a lovely idea. My parents are usually the type that doesn't really appreciate or like those kinds of things.

I hope they love it though. I really do!

I hope so!

My mom can pick out whatever frame she wants lol she's a little ocd about having certain ones. I just would love for a couple shots of us and them and some of them with little man. :)

If not, we'll still do the photo session. I'll just have to find something better for my dad if they say no lol
