We went to Picture People this year to have the boys pro pics done.I had a gift card that my sister-in-law gave me back when Matthew was born that I hadn't used, so I figured now was a good a time as ever!
I was so not impressed with Picture People. Their choice of backgrounds: white, black, green/blue dots (very 80s) or a black and white damask pattern (very girlie). Plus, they would only let us change outfits once. And at the end, they tried to sell me a $700 picture package (SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS!). I walked out with an $18 picture bundle of one pose (I had a coupon) and a high-res disc all all my images (only 17 in total) that cost me $120. Insane. Our local Sears Portrait Studio is way better priced and they have so much to choose from in the way of backgrounds (I wanted these pictures to say "fall" - I don't think they do). So, lesson learned. Back to Sears next year!
Noah was an epic fail at this photo shoot. You can't tell from the photos because for about a total of 12 seconds he was willing to pose, so we were able to get some smiling shots. The rest of the time he was screaming, running away and just being a cranky mess. Matthew on the other hand listened well, tried his best to follow the photographers instructions and really seemed to enjoy himself. If I was to take a guess now - Matthew is my future model, Noah is my football player.
