We want to have some wallet-friendly family pictures taken. We've seen that Target, JCPenney's, etc. has portrait studios but have never gone to one.
Please recommend a good place & why you like it.
We love the portrait studio at Target here. The ladies are great with kids. I print coupons off their website for $3.99 sheets. JCPenney studios are run by the same company (Lifetouch), so the quality should be comparable. With the stores new lower pricing strategy, it looks like their sheets are $4 every day. For that price, we get DS' pictures taken every 6 months :)
To compare, we won gift cards to one of those mall chains and spent over $200 (only $5 after the GCs, thank goodness) on the same number of prints we would have paid Target $35 for and they weren't as good as what we get at Target.
I LOVE PicturePeople. The pictures aren't as posed/stiff. Especially for little ones.
My Two Cents.
We use Portrait Innovations and LOVE them! For less than $10 you can get over 40 pictures of one pose. They have always taken at least 100 pictures of my son, & I love that you can bring your own props and change outfits several times. Plus they shoot digitally so they bring all the pics up on a large screen and you get to compare 3 at a time and get rid of any you don't like, then you can keep reducing until you have your favorites.
