So we decided to go with a family photo shoot this year for Christmas pictures versus a trip to the portrait studio. Let me state that the last visit to get family pictures taken at this studio resulted in a 2 hour wait because they were running behind. And the pictures were horrible. Much complaining goes on that there are too many children, (this done by the employee’s). There is NO creativity in the shots, and then the ones taken make me cringe that I even paid for this. Oh-and last time, after viewing the photos to choose for the order, I asked where one paticular photo was. To which was replied~”My(being the photographer) hand was in it. Maybe next time you will get a better photographer” WHAT??? I am paying you because you are suppose to be good!!
So when it came time to discuss what to do for the Christmas pic, we decided to call up a friend and see what he could do. Results~ Amazing photography and a really fun afternoon of running around just being us. Eric and I both agree that these pics of us are better than what we got from our wedding. Maybe that’s because we are so much more comfortable with each other now than we were on our wedding day.
