Baby Pictures

Im looking for a place to take Evan for pictures.  I need something affordable but I don't want cheesy studio portraits with a bunch of props. 

 Anyone have recommendations? 

Re: Baby Pictures

  • We've been to:

    Portrait Innovations:Good but EXPENSIVE depending on how many pics you want

    JCPenney's:  Cheap with the coupons you can print online.  No cheesy props unless you bring them or ask for them

    Target: Same as JCP...

    We really like the photographer we have had more times then not at Target in Fenton.  The prices are reasonable ($3,99/sheet) and the pics are good.  If you want to see the latest pics of Clare, send me your email address and I will send you the link. at gmail dot com


  • JC Penney is a good place to go. You're going to want to have pictures taken a lot, so you might as well go someplace affordable. We had our engagement pictures taken there in March and we're really happy with them. If you tell them you don't want dorky props in the pictures, they won't use them.

    I stopped by the Sears Portrait Studio and even glanced at the Wal-Mart one when I walked by and both of them had nasty flourescent lighting in their studios. At JCP, they only had the studio lights, which I think makes for much better photos.

  • We had a HORRIBLE experience at Target in Fenton and will never go back.  I had a nice experience at JCP (owned by the same company, but the photog was MUCH better).  I LOVE Picture People.  You can look online for a coupon for a free 8X10 or free 10X13 + 15% off.  I take JR at least once/month (on average more than that, he's probably been 25 times or so).  Their sheets are all $18 each but you don't have to buy any, you can just get your freebie if you want, they have people do it all of the time, so don't feel bad.  It's so hard to just walk away with one, I've always had an awsome experience, I could go on about them all day, I just think they're wonderful all around.  For $35 you can buy a package good for 3 different sitting, at each sitting, you get an additional free sheet (and I always have my coupon, so I really get 2 free), and $10 off another sheet.

  • We bought a newborn package with Heidi Drexler Photography.  She comes to your house to take pics - no cheesy studio pics.  We just got proofs back from maternity shots and they turned out great.  She has a good website if you google her name.
