Ive never been a huge fan of school pictures to actually hang up and give to family. I hate the backgrounds and when I was a kid we usually had pictures right after gym or lunch so my hair was a mess or I had something on my shirt.
With that said L had school pics Sept.15th first thing in the morning. Not sure how they will look so we will probably only buy the cheapest package so I can have a class pic for him.
Ugh -- I know!!
I stopped buying the school pictures a while ago because in my kids' schools you have to buy one of the most expensive packages to get an 8x10. And then you get dozens of tiny pictures you'll never use. I was spending close to $50 to get one 8x10, which is ridiculous.
Plus, the pictures of my DD usually suck, quite honestly. She's a beautiful girl, but it never seems to come through in really posed pictures. Her dad is the same way. DS is a little more photogenic, but I still feel the school pics are rip-offs.
We have a friend who is a professional photographer, and I just get him to do pics of the kids every year or so.
4boys?ohmy:Our $19 got us a 5x7, 2 3x5s and 4 wallets...woot. I hope he smiled for real and not his super cheesy eyes closed smile.
I laughed out loud when I read this, because that is exactly what my son did haha.
