I have taken my kids there in the past, and the pictures turned out beautiful! I would do a little research and see if you want to use a prop at all. Try to find what kinds of pictures you are looking for, etc. Also, Sears portraits is somewhere else I have had luck with. They have coupons once in a while for $4.99 for 30 pictures or so. That also includes the sitting fee. You only get to choose one photo, but totally worth the extra savings.
