I am new to the area and it is time to have our family pictures done. I also need some good pictures of my kids. I have found a number of people and visited their websites, all of whom are very, very good. The one I like the most is Herd of Birdz photography. Does anyone know anything about this photographer or have any experience with this company? I absolutely loved the website and the pictures were so good. Just curious to know what others think and if you have a favorite photographer.

Thanks for the input

We use Jael deYoung www.jaeldeyoungphotography.org
She is the greatest. Reasonable, artistic and will go wherever you like. We love her so much we hired her for an entire year!!! She has 3 girls so understands the importance of patience plus she has that mommy touch with the kiddos.

You should call Tonia Fell - she is awesome and so cheap! She charges you between $50-$75 for the entire thing. She hands you a cd of all the pictures taken and you print what you want....or she will also print them for you if you'd like. check out her website... www.toniafell.com
Good luck!

I actually just finished using Theresa, the photographer of Herd of Birdz...and already have another shoot booked with more shoots on the horizon. She is great! She was very personable and great with my kiddo, who happens to be a tough subject. She is willing to go where you want, but also has many fun and interesting suggestions of where to do the shoot. I thought she was very reasonably priced and she gave me a cd....now I can make all the prints I want. I was talking with Theresa during the shoot, and come to find out, she is going to be published (I think sometime this summer) in a photographers magazine. This girl is going places. She has a great eye and I love how our pictures turned out. I have recommended her to all my friends and I recommend her to anyone out there looking for a great photographer. Check out her blog at www.herdofbirdz.blogspot.com.

If you've never seen someone who can get the right shot at just the right moment - or help you find those precious moments that you WISH you could photograph, you should check out this gal's website - http://www.graceglimpses.com/ - her stuff is SOOOO good. I'm just amazed at what she is able to get from regular kids - they look like models, but real and fun and adorable. You'll love it! Ginny has quite a few kids of her own and has a fabulous eye for getting great shots. (PS - she is an ocean lover too!!!)

I have a lady that did our family photos - spent the entire day with the 3 grown children/spouses and 2 grandsons and the prices are beautiful - her name is Joyce and her number is ###-###-####. The best thing is her prices are GREAT. We've used several different photographers over the years and paid alot more than she charges. I don't believe she charged a sitting fee because I ordered so many photos. You can check our her pics on her web site too: www.joycesphotography.com

Hi,

My name is T. Alldredge with Herd of Birdz photography and first let me say thank you for your interest! I would love to talk to you about doing a shoot for your kiddos so feel free to call me at ###-###-####. I am happy to hear that you like the pictures on my blog and hopefully my website will be up soon so you will be able to see more of the cute faces I have had the priveledge to photograph.

I, too, have 3 little ones and know what goes into getting kids ready, keeping them clean, sane and happy long enough to capture the images you want. The way I do that is to remember to have FUN!

Thanks to Tricia S. for the kind words. I am looking forward to our next shoot. Thanks for having so much fun on the last one! Your kiddo is a kick in the pants. LOVED her!

I just had family portraits taken a couple of months ago by Nancy Van Landingham. I was very, very impressed with the photos, but most of all I was thrilled with her prices. The sitting fee and the cost of photos was so reasonable for by SAHM budget!!
