Am I the only one?

That doesn't buy school pictures? I did for the first few years & then just found it to be a waste.

We take a million pics of our kids-they're all organized by year/month on the computer-they're backed up in 2 different places-I print what I like.

Inevitably, we can take MUCH better pictures than the school pics anyway. So, we just don't buy them.

Am I the only one?

I personally wouldn't want my Kid taking school photos.

Well they have to have them taken because they create their student ID with it. But I don't buy the photos.

I bought them through 8th grade only. Then obviously senior pics.

Mine are in preschool and I don't buy any.  They are expensive and it is so cheap to do yourself now with digital cameras and printing (e.g. Target).

We have family photos done by a photographer twice a year. I would rather spend that money on this photos, so we don't buy school pictures.

I don't buy them because my kids are in dance or sports. The pics are way better from activities.

I also think they are way over priced for school pics.. Really this day and age they shouldn't cost so much..when they send home pics I usually take a pic of the picture and send them back..lol

That wouldn't work for us. There's a "not for reprint" banner straight across it.
