My mom and I took the kids to get their pictures taken yesterday. Little Sister’s birthday is coming up and we hadn’t done their pictures in a while, so I figured it was time. We always go to a local department store studio – they do a great job, and we always have a coupon for $3.99 per sheet of photos. Not a bad deal at all, as long as I can control myself.
Since we’re also planning to get Christmas pictures taken next month, I figured that I’d buy pics of maybe six different poses, maybe 10 sheets total. The photographer took 22 shots, and darned if they weren’t all excellent! The kids were just so cute in each of the pictures. Mom and I managed to narrow it down to 13 shots, and ended up getting one sheet of each of them. I would have bought them all if I could have though. We did get the “smiles by wire,” so at least we’ll have all the poses electronically.
(Let’s not even talk about the time I decided to get the $7.99 “one pose” package – they still take all 22 shots!)
Anybody else have this problem? How do you pick? Do you buy a lot?
