Say Cheese!

I'm a bad mom when it comes to certain things. I yell, I forget things, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about pictures.

I take pictures of my kids all the time. And now that I can take them on my new nifty phone, they want me to take even more! In fact, yesterday they made volcanoes in the sandbox and begged me to take a picture of them. When is that ever going to come in handy?!? I bet they already forgot about it!

The pictures that I forget to do are the professional kind. GG gets hers in school every year, thank goodness. Actually her school has photographers come in both the Spring and the Fall. If the Fall picture is good we buy it and don't worry about the next round. If it's bad, we try again in the Spring. It never fails that one of those sessions is absolutely horrible. Her very first school picture looked like she was punched in the face. Obviously we didn't buy that one!

Hopefully no one looks like that today. My MIL works in a day care. A few months ago the Picture People came to do the pictures of the kids. All of the staff and parents who were a no show that day received a coupon. I think it's for a free 8x10 and 20% off a session at the actual store. So guess where we're going today?

The last time Little Dude had a professional picture taken he was 2. I told you I was bad at this!

I hope all goes well today!



Until next time....

I am really bad about it too. We also went more than 7 years between family photos

Hope it was a pain free session and that you love the pictures.

You'll never regret doing that!

I gave up on professional photos for my kids. I would take them to Portrait Innovations and I always spent more than I should. But maybe I should go get some professional shots of my Little E. You made me think about it, since Miss K gets school pics now and he doesn't. Thanks!

We never get professional pictures...with seven kids, it's kinda hard to get everyone to say "cheese." ;-)

God Bless!

Good luck! I practically have a nervous breakdown anytime we have pro pictures taken. I freak out (as do the kids).

My daughter is 2 and we've never had professional pictures done. They are just too expensive, and I take a ton of pics of her anyway.

I have never gotten any professional pictures do like Cari said about me. My little one is also two. I just take my own..
