We are going tomorrow to get Christmas pics done!

So - we are going for the $10.00 package. They said they will take 60-80 shots, and I can only do one pose with that package. Oh gawd - wish me luck!

I will also get christmas cards there.. so - I can maybe get another pose on there... but - YIKES!

I think we are going to take him to see Santa tomorrow too...

Have fun! We are going on Sat to do pics and maybe see Santa too. Where are you going? We are going to JC Penny's to see how they do. I'm getting Christmas cards there too. It's going to be hard to pick just one pose!! But we can do it!!

You girls are so brave!! I ended up with six poses at Natalie's 6 month pictures. I had a special for $10 or $15 that ended up costing me $150. Those places can smell suckers like us coming a mile away.

Oh trust me, I get suckered every time! I have yet to EVER leave with just ONE pose and then when we get home, I never want to take down any of the past pics so I keep getting more frames and DH has now said no more frames on the credenza thing behind the couch! Time to start replacing old pics.

Lol I was going to say that since you end up getting swindled into buying a bunch of stuff anyway, wouldn't it be worth it to find a talented local photographer who will make sure you get a nice shot? They are out there! If you lived in Nashville, I could recommend a very reasonable one

We're using a local photographer, who's coming to our home. That way, we can include our tree and or pets...assuming the latter cooperate. We're then doing picture holiday cards online. He's really good and quite reasonable. Plus, he's creative and we have some ideas for potentially hilarious shots. I definitely recommend using local talent!

Jaime, if I were in Nashville, I'd hire you in a second!! The ones out here are pretty pricey I was going to ask my FIL to take some but they can't make it over in the next few weeks.

The prices are what keep me from going local as well.... I went to portrait innovations - so far, I'm very happy with what they do there I did the $10.00 package, christmas cards - and one more pose. more than I planned, but still within reason! The cards are what costed!! But I think they were worth it.

We found a band photographer through my husband. Luckily, he only charged us a case of LaBatt beer! Here are some shots. I think he did a great job considering our pickle was a big crank yesterday!



His puppet had to join in.



I love this one, but does he look PISSED!



Sweet:



There are a lot of aspiring photographers out there who just starting out but very talented. They often are looking to build their portfolio and are willing to offer a discount or even for free.

Also, I was able to create and order 40 photo Xmas cards from the photo shoot for only $17.50. Got a great deal at Snapfish, which is offering free shipping + 40% discount. Also, I got 30 free prints for becoming a new member. Sweet!

So I thought I didn't have it in my budget to get a local photographer for DD's pictures. So I went to JCPenny's with a coupon and ended up spending more than with a professional local photographer. I did that twice before I realized I could not stick to the coupon requirements. So the last two sessions we had we went with a local photographer. I really liked the pictures from her seven month session and we had our Christmas pictures taken today at our house with our dog- hopefully they'll come out nice
