oh no you didnt

help plz

Im planning on going real soon to get family photos done and need some recomendations.  Now, im not looking for anything extremely fancy.  But I am going for nice.  I love Kiddie Kandids for Eli's last photo taking adventure, but the closest one is in Albuquerque, which isn't such a hassle as we will be there in a few weeks, but it would still make things slightly complicated.  So instead, I am looking at either Sears or JC Penney.  Sears has a military discount (20%) and the cute "dress up" props - which would really only be for me, as the family just wants babies babies babies.  Im in progress of telling Keith what needs to be worn in a photo like this and he's in progress of telling me he's too fat for his clothes/photos.  So getting whole family shots is up in the air.  Of course, he's also asked for just us two and I told him it was a waste of a sitting.  I want kid photos done and could care less about everything else - after all, if someone wants that photo done, they can pay for it.  I'll get them on the 'net and they can pay for them, dangit :)

And Walmart is not only a no at this point, its a hell no - Im never getting photos there again.

So JCPenney or Sears?  Yay or Nay and experiences plz

p.s. ya'll liking my new icons?  theyre awesome I think.

p.p.s. if you need recent photos like Miah all buggin' me and such, head to http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_tina/ thats where Im keeping them now for my fam. enjoy (and register with your yahoo ID for an account - flickr is teh aweseom! :)


I get ours done at Sears. I've had good luck with them, so much so that I finally broke down and bought a smilesavers plan. And they run coupons in the paper for good packages super-cheap all the time. The last round of pics of the girls that I got done were from Sears.
Pick Sears. JCPenney's is evil after my experience.
Sears Though I can't complain about Wal-Mart. I had good experiences with them. I used to be a diehard Olan Mills fan but that was many many years ago. Of course if you want to go to Kiddie Kandids you won't upset me at all. I've seen pics from there and they are to die for. Just make sure I get one! =)
Jcpenney wasn't too bad. But they charged a sitting fee for 2 of us. You can get the coupons for $3.99/sheet, thats not too bad. I haven't tried Sears but I think they have the military discount and no sitting fee. I would look around for some coupons as well though. And definitely don't do Walmart. Walmart is good if you want one pose of one person, anything more than that is going to cost you an arm and a leg.
I've never known anyone to get any done at JC Penneys, but my cousin and her brothers got some done at Sears and they came out great. I went and looked online and JC Penneys actually had the prices. I'd go with Sears. They have cute props and the sepia print looks really nice.

At least your children are hams for the camera. I'm sure wherever you go, the pics will come out great! :)
